Be Aware of the Dangers of Sepsis and the Importance of Early Detection

September is Sepsis Awareness month; so, we thought we’d share some of the basics of Sepsis.  Sepsis is the body’s overwhelming and life-threatening response to infection that can lead to tissue damage, organ failure, and death.

Be Grateful and Live a Longer, Happier Life

With Thanksgiving Day being yesterday, our thoughts turn to things to be thankful for and it occurred to me that some of the happiest people I know are also the ones that seem the most grateful.
