Something goes here

But I’m not really sure what it should be. However, I need to figure out the size of the column so everything lines up. It’s late, I’m kinda tired and hopefully by tomorrow I will have figured it out.

Is it time to worry about ebola yet? Unless you’ve been living under a rock you’ve heard about ebola and how it has made its way to America. A few weeks ago a man named Thomas Eric Duncan flew to the US from Liberia.

Even though he told hospital staff he was from Liberia, a place battling ebola right now, he was turned away. He returns a few days later with worsening symptoms...

Does anal fistula surgery hurt? Yes, fistula surgery hurts. In fact it hurts more than just about anything I have experienced and that includes both vaginal births and c-sections. What follows is a description of what you can expect following anal fistula surgery including pain level, recovery time and treatment if necessary. I’ve had fistula surgery twice now, each time with the placement and eventual removal of a seton which means I’ve had four surgeries on my ass. Not all fistula surgeries include seton placement and in fact there are many different procedures for fixing an...
