this subject that picks up where he feels this author left off. What do you

convince him to share his knowledge with us readers of Histo-Logic.

connected with has the ability to perform more than a Diff-Quik stain. More 
immediately, I have - within the last week - found out that I have serious 
cardiac valvular disease, and I do not know what the next few months will
