    Very good blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress
    or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely confused .. Any recommendations? Kudos!

    Hmm it looks like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any points for beginner blog writers? I’d genuinely
    appreciate it.

    Hey just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let
    you know a few of the images aren’t loading properly. I’m not sure why but I
    think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same results.

    June of 2005 I found a lump in my throat which turned out to be Thyriod cancer –a 2.5 cm. tumor (follicular and papillary). After the thyriodectomy including the parathyroids, I was treated with one round of radiation — “mop up” treatment. I’ve had no more reoccurance of cancer and remained on Synthroid these 7.5 years.
    Ever since this surgery I’ve had other issues with reaction to foods, GI issues, skin problems, etc.– I won’t bore you with all the details, but my question is Is Sjogren’s syndrome related to this type of cancer and if so, HOW?

    (12) weight loss green tea says:

    And how does each and every of them aid the body in
    shedding calories. Mega-T seems to happen to be favorably incorporated into the life-style changes of
    several folks along with the change to a nutritious diet and far more workout,
    and none from the unfavorable fears are realized.
    Green tea supplements are best for professionals ‘on the go’ who don’t have so much time to spare.

    So it’s great to make sure your child is protected this summer. Soft toys made from cotton and linen (the safest baby toy will be the organic cotton soft toy), are the most popular amongst infants and younger children – especially girls. And if they become bored with them, they’ll
    probably enjoy the box they came in.

    Fourteen years ago, I had completion thyroidectomy as I had surgery for lobe crony several years prior. And so in 1999, after surgery, I received almost 800 mci RI over the course of 6 years as papillary follicular cancer had metastasized to lungs. In 2004 it had spread to mediastinum. In 2005 I received direct beam to that area. Now,8 years later I am being followed only by bloodwork (thyroglobulin measurement) and neck ultrasound. No more scans as I have had my allotted lifetime dosage. Should symptoms occur, I can only hope for an alternate intervention.

    Research has been underway because 1971 when the president from the USA declared war on cancer and allocated funds to find a cure. However 40 years have now pasted and the very best they have come up with is really a selection of drugs which are marginally more efficient but still don’t cure but might give somebody a bit much more time. These drugs are very expensive costing around 4000 US dollars a month and one of them, herceptin utilized to get a kind of breast cancer was said to become 0.6 better than some of the earlier drugs.
