Re: [MOL] Pat Kimmi--Re: Low dose chemotherapy & Taxol



Claire,
Could you tell me how much you mix with food or drink 3 x daily? I'm going
to health food store this weekend to look for some glutamine for Daddy.  He
sure had a rough time this last treatment and not quite back to normal yet
but much better.  Said when he goes the 27th for next tx he will tell them
he wants lower dosage!!!!  Thanks . Pat Kimmi-KS
