Re: Reporting Aboard

Thanks! These results and those from January were simple lipid panels. The lab results from February were an advanced panel. I will do another another advanced panel in two or so months.

Now my family just rolls their eyes at me for eating all that bacon. (They don't know about my 4/4 (except my wife) because they don't want to learn ...
