day four almost over 8 y
day four of water fast, progress

Now I am just hoping the remainder of my fast goes just about how the last day or so has been.... we will see!! visit the page

Almost four years ago I was in a very serious car accident, that broke 16 bones and required about an 8 month recovery until I fe ... read more
