Re: Take me away to that special place - Picture Thread

Re: Some CEA studies I found interesting

Well done on the signature! It took me about eight years and we had a laugh as I eventually gave into peer pressure. However I do think my mum’s signature is a source of encouragement to a lot of people in her situation so it too has value ! :D We have had a lot of people journey along her with appe...

However understanding its role and its limitations has helped put it in a box and not over react to it . Last winter my mum had a spike for around six months . Two scans and nothing showed up .
