  1. Sometimes a blood clot will form without a trigger (such as an injury or cut). This is more likely to happen with certain risk factors or conditions. Risk factors include:

    Prolonged sitting.
    Prolonged bed rest.

    We need to be more conscious of our health, eat healthier and exercise and move more.

  2. All the best to my former lawyer. Although a part of ABLP which I believe is the worst party/government in the world, l do wish him all the best and a speedy recovery.

    • No Zackie, the “worst government in the world” has just been kicked to the curb. I’m talking about Donald, the Trump.

      Yes, we all wish the AG speedy recovery. Prayers and best wishes.

  3. Upp alp all the political parties are the worst but it’s not our decision to run a country best of wishes to the ag and a speedy recovery!
