A friend is in a mainstream hospital in Orange County, CA, having LEECH THERAPY. She had her thumb severed by a rope with horse pulling away. 2nd friend this happened to.

 

I had no idea Leech Therapy was used in mainstream medicine. Just thought I'd share.

 

This is in no way related to our situations!!

I have heard this, and all I can think about is the leech scene in The African Queen. ~S

As always, LISTEN TO YOUR BODY! A proud supporter of the 10% (or slower) rule.
