Hi Sis,
((Hugz) What a great post and so helpful. I am trying to eat the right things so it doesn't affect my liver. I was having some issues with some new meds and I could not not blog like I wanted to because I kept getting a fever and headaches. Hope you are doing well and I love your blog look so refreshing and my favorite colors too !!!
