Hi Sox Fan,
Sorry your here but glad you came. This is one of the only places where north siders and south siders can join together and share piece and a common spirit to overcome and perservere.
You can see below by my history I am 54 and just had DaVinci 12 days ago at University of Chicago. This is a great forum of the most caring people I have ever met from all over. Educate your self, take one step at a time and dont ever be afraid to ask questions of anyone and to get other opinions.
Go to the control panel at top left and fill out your history at the bottom.
You can trust a Cub's fan, my daughter (also a nurse) and son inlaw are huge Sox fans and are going to the games Friday and Saturday. Even as a Cub's fan I still I truly love the Sox for I get to do a sleep over with my granddaughter when they go to the games.........
