    Rick,

    I’m with Barry in initially suspecting a non ‘C’ reason but the right course of action is to get it checked out and that is what he is doing.

    Hopefully it is easily resolved with treatment.

    Sculpin,

    Thanks for the update. Statistics are great for historical analysis but they are a very blunt tool for predicting individual persons prognosis in the future. However bad it looks, there...
