Phospho-Soda Recall

I saw one of those dumb lawyer commercials the other day, and it was for people who want to file lawsuits against Fleet, the manufacturers of Phospho-Soda, which I had complained about in an earlier post. I had to take it to prep my bowels for surgery, but it took all my willpower to get it down and keep it down. Apparently it has been causing serious kidney damage in some people and as of last December has been recalled. I just knew this stuff was evil!!

You can read more about it on the US Recall News website:

  2. Open invitation to you and your readers to participate in the Being Cancer Book Club. This month we are discussing "The Light Within: the Extraordinary Friendship of a Doctor and Patient Brought Together by Cancer". “When young gynecologic oncology fellow Lois Ramondetta was first summoned to the room of a new ovarian cancer patient, neither she nor the forty-nine-year-old professor of religion she encountered named Deborah Sills thought they had much in common. They certainly had no idea that they were about to embark on a transcendent odyssey that would become a soul-deep friendship. Now their heartfelt story, The Light Within, follows these two women through a decade of friendship and “big lives”—husbands, children, friends, and careers—ultimately crossing the country and traveling to foreign lands, where they spoke and wrote together about the intersection of doctors, patients, and spirituality. Both women searched together and openly for answers with honesty and intimacy until Deborah passed away in the spring of 2006.”
