  1. Any recommendations when to take one out
    Ie, a healthy 60 yo male with DVT from popliteal thru entire femoral into iliac vein with massive PE but no pulmonary hypertension. IVC placed to avoid further clot burden. Pt now 2 wks out stable on Coumadin but with recurrent DVT and positive factor V Leiden? Was put on Testosterone injections 3 mos prior

  2. Your family enjoys a great meal and creates a great Christmas moment without breaking the family budget.
    And when you feel that you want to change the message on your wall, you can easily take them off because they are designed to be removable.
    Let your child realize that the rock is hard and the soil is soft.
