    Lorie,

    I just read about the trials and tribulations you are having with your health. My son passed away from heart issues and my husband recently had a stroke so I really sympathize with your heart problems. I hope they have been resolved and am so glad that the medical care team was good and that they were kind! (We didn't exactly have the same when my husband was in hospital after his stroke.)

    I am also so, so very sorry to read that you had to put your kitty to sleep. That's so hard, especially at a time when you probably need his or her love even more than usual (when you're facing your health challenges, I mean).

    Big hugs and warm thoughts are headed your way.

      Thank you for your kind words and taking the time to respond.
      My original issue most likely is hereditary so getting my son who has a $4,000 deductible to get an echocardiogram will be hard.''
      No one should have to lose a child and I am so sad you went thru that. How long ago did it happen?
      I belong to a site that is for heart issues and very informative and kind people like this one is for Cancer. it's heartvalvesurgery dot com, if you're interested; Hope for your husbands recovery.
      Guess you heard about Greg; Wishing for some good news from that fighter soon.

      Also. Losing Ringo was tough but he was sick and I couldn't stand to see him suffer.
      RIP RINGO

      Lorie - human females produce hormones in the milk, also. I found out one day that when a baby nurses, a tiny bit of saliva is taken up in the breast and the mother's body reads the saliva and produces whatever antibodies the baby needs at the time. How perfect is this world in so many ways!

      Fiddler, Yes, My thin, fine hair actually was nice when PG. Grew Bra size too:) . Interesting about the saliva too. But, at this stage of life with the C, think milk has served its purpose. Oatmilk tastes better anyway.

      I like oatmilk, but it's way too "carby" for me--per my weight-management nurse practitioner. I usually mix an organic ultra-filtered (even lower-carb than Fair Life) milk with unsweetened vanilla almondmilk (Blue Diamond). The latter is the only plant milk that froths up reliably in a Nespresso Aeroccino. (I use milks for cappuccinos & lattes, sometimes on grain-free and keto "cereals"). I do keep oatmilk on hand for a latte-loving friend who thinks almond milk is eco-unfriendly (and is convinced it uses so much water that it's helped cause CA's fires); but since the pandemic she hasn't been over, of course.
