6:16 am
major bleeding than the standard treatment. knowing eliquis had both... 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 than 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. ask your doctor if it's right for you. you get used to sweaty odors you think it smells fine, but your passengers smell this... eliminate odors you've gone noseblind to for up to 30 days with the febreze car vent clip

6:24 am
>> batle has had a life long obsession with the shape of eggs. and their promise of a fresh beginning. but ostrich eggs aren't exactly medium. he carves using a high speed dental drill. the only tool that can render such astonishing detail. >> the shell on an egg is about a 16th of an inch. if you go past that 16th of an inch you practically destroy the egg. and i think that kind of fragility is where i stand -- emotionally, i think. >> well, aren't we all? >> that's right. we all are. we all have that 16th of an inch. >> in works like "it's your fault" batle charts the cycle of cruelty. the abused boy becomes an abuser himself.
6:25 am
