Do you think about what’s left? How many years do I have? What kind of quality of life will they be? What kind of health will I be in? Will my money hold out? And what about this day? Where will I go from here?

  • Whole grains consist of the entire grain seed, usually called the kernel.

    When I used to work as a nurse, it was not unusual for a doctor to go shopping in our sample supply cabinet. We used to laugh a lot about that because the doctor would go through each shelf and place items in a little brown paper bag. It was fun to watch because we knew that he/she was doing everything to help cut costs for the patient.
