Tonsil removal for an adult can be a literal nightmare and can take a month or more for those doubting her yes some bounce back quick but its common for infections slow healing and extreme pain also keep that in mind the pain medication you will absolutely require is a big no no so keep all paperwork

CR England Hybrid Electric Trucks

I agree rick is that added weight from the motor and batteries added to the diesel engine weight effective to save enough money in fuel to make it worth carrying less freight

Are Volvo trucks all automatic?

Not all the new trucks are automatic you get what you order whether its a 10-13-18 speed manuel or an autoshift i think myself that you limit yourself in opportunities if you get the restriction but thats just me and i like options

Using The Throttle While Letting Out On The Clutch

So my wifes at cdl school same one i went to and i was taught and practiced to release the clutch on initial take off with no accelerator and let the governor do the work and they are teaching her to use the peddle and lots of them including her have had stalling issues in my experience that is because you didnt let the truck do the work any input on that i feel like they are doing her and the class an injustice idk maybe im wrong but its the way i learned and ive nailed it my whole driving career
