A "7" would cause me to move quickly -
-to whatever treatment option I decided upon.
While logged on, in the upper left corner of this page you will find the "Control Panel."
You can customize a "signature" there that will let us know things like your husband's age,
gleeson score, etc. This will improve the responses to your questions.
