At the quilt show I saw over a hundred beautiful quilts, but of course I can’t load on 100 photos, nor would anyone want to look at that many, so I chose some of the quilts that appealed to me the most. I happen to love appliqué and one-of-a kind quilts made from someone’s imagination. Not all of these quilts are unique, but many are.

I chose to stop the drops, Latanoprost, 9 days before, because I knew my body well enough to know something was wrong.

Reported Adverse reaction to FDA

Board of Medical Examiners very rude. Called Legislative Office to ask them to follow up and reprimand her or just fire her. I think my taxes pay her salary. I was only trying to be helpful.

Too much government in our lives.

That about sums up the visit.
