    I am not all that fond of yogurt, so decided to try the almond milk, and like it very much.
    She really doesn't like milk at all. I didn't find that out til after we were married.

    A magnesium supplement should be balanced with the calcium intake. As I recall, the magnesium first is needed in general for health but is also needed for proper processing of calcium in the body.

    Also, if you can get gcMAF, I would recommend this. There is some controversy whether certain supplies are properly processed, but this should help curtail cancer. This is a standard thing found in your body ... but is deficient in people with cancer.

    Yes, on the magnesium. I'll check into the rest.

    Thanks

    Vitamin D is also very important to the absorbtion of calcium. I had to double my intake when I was diagnosed with osteoporosis. Of course, I live up here in the Great White North, although we do get a lot of sun even in the winter.

    I'm just not out in it.

    Yeah, ranch, not dairy.

    I was born allergic to milk and never developed a taste for it (except once in Kentucky - something about it coming out of bags made it taste good to me ). I do eat a lot of cheese but honestly don't know about its calcium content.

    Glad to hear things are going so well, CP.

If we thought we were building up a heaven on earth, if we looked for something that would turn the present world from a place of pilgrimage into a permanent city satisfying the soul of man, we are disillusioned, and not a moment too soon." - C.S.

    OK, so, yesterday we had a couple more followup doctor visits.

    The visits went fine, but one doc was a little concerned about bone loss in her left hip - a side effect of one of the hormone blockers she's taking, as her cancer was "hormone fed". (I don't know nearly as much about this as those of her cohorts who have also been battling this cancer)

    All in all, GOOD NEWS, with that one little concern, which can supposedly be offset with more calcium and vitamin D.

    THEN, when we got home, there was a letter in the mailbox from MD Anderson (wish we would have had it PRIOR to her visits yesterday) which contained an official notification that the particular breast implant that was used in reconstructive surgery was found to be suspected, itself, of being a cancer causing agent "in a small number of cases".

    Mrs CP dismissed it as "a cover-your-butt notice", but I can tell it's of concern to her.
