6:07 am
moisture. we see rain through the south that we would likely see in the springtime. i want to break down an el nio. warmer than average temperatures in part of the equator. the ex-pans of water is two more times the size. this disrupts the weather patterer across the world. especially the united states. a wetter and stormier pattern across the south. a stormier pattern out west. warmer temperatures across the rtheast. breaking it down. out west, the wettest december on record in portland. 25 to 50 inches of snow ithe sierra. that is 115% aboveaverage. that will continue for at least the next month. down across the south, you have the jet stream that pumps i the warmer temperatures and moisture. we had 23 deaths from tornadoes ininhe month of december alone.

my sister raves about her toothpaste and mouthwash all the time. i'm like, huh? aren't they all the same? you know, , had to see for myself. so i went pro. with crest pro-health advanced. advance to a healthier, stronger, cleaner mouth from day 1. this toothpaste... ...and mouthwash make my whole mouth feel amazing. and my teeth strongege crest pro-health advanced is superior in these 5 areas dentists check. this is gonna go well, for sure. advance to a healthier stronger, cleanemouth from day 1. great check up. my sister was right. i sure had a lot on my mind when i got out of the hospital after a dvt blood clot. wh about my family? my li'l budddd and what if this happened again? i was given warfarin in the hospital but i wondered if this was the right treatment for me. then my doctor told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt a a pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots, but eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the stataard treatment.
6:53 am
turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer thaha usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made switching to eliquis right for me.
