Kay,

My babies are: TeeJay 11 year old gray tabby, Amber 10 month old Chartreaux and Flash 9 month old Norwegien Forrest Cat.

My kids gave me TeeJay after my baby kitty Toot died from feline luekemia in August 1998. Tee is an old man now.

Amber was a stray that just walked right into the house one day when we opened the door. She is named after a character from the TV show "House, MD" The character Amber was nicknamed "Cutthroat Bitch" by House and it just fit this sassy little gray kitten who came in and reeked havoc with the other 2 cats, TeeJay and Pepper.

We had Pepper a 5 year old Maine Coon and my husbands baby! But he came up missing the end of January and never came back. So to make my husband not be so lonely for Pep we adopted Flash from the Humane Society in April. Of course he was sick for the first 2 months with diarrhea and my husband cussed the cat everyday for 2 months. We almost renamed him Flapjack! He is better now and growing so fast. He is now bigger than Amber and just gorgeous.

What am I saying they are all gorgeous!!

OK, i converted your d3 results to SI units and i guess you were at 25nmol/L to start 8O and now you're up to 200 nmol/L!!! a very good level, but approaching the upper limit.
do you also take calcium magnesium and zinc with your d3?
i am hoping to be back down under 250nmol/L at my next bloodwork in august.

ok, I think I figured this out. It's not a new kind of D we were talking about, it was a new kind of B-12. I think that's what it was. Ken

Cat, I love House! I think it's my all-time favorite show! It sounds like you have a pretty good crew over at your house- do they all get along well now?

Jimmylegs, I take a multivitamin (most days) and there's added Calcium in my benefiber. My MS specialist is the one who monitors my vitamin D level- I don't know what it's at, but the target is "80". I've been entertaining the thought of switching to methylB12 sublinguals...

Ken, I'm pretty sure that it's D3 that I'm getting, but I'll have to look into that.

Kay,

So, you are House lover too. Then you know exactly who Amber was on the show. We have much in common.

Amber and Flash get along great since they are close in age. But, Tee just wants to be left alone. He will hiss and spat at the other 2 sometimes. He misses Pep.....

What about your bunch?

they shouldn't have killed her. it's fun when she comes back as a hallucination.

ken, i am ashamed to say i have never bothered looking for hydroxocobalamin, but i know it's available in ontario because i heard about it in the first place from a family friend, which made me look it up more. i haven't even bothered to take my old methyl in about a million years, i've been coasting on my crappy b-complex for the time being. i suppose i should behave myself :S hehe

OK, FYI the recommended intakes for ms-ers, especially when taking high doses of d3, is 1000-1200mg calcium, 600mg magnesium (ideally in an absorbable form) and 25-50mg zinc.

That was a shocker, huh?? She was the one you loved to hate. I did not expect her to die. Poor Wilson can't keep a woman. I guess House is his soulmate..haha!

I tell my husband House it the perfect man. He thinks I am crazy!

vitamin shoppe doesnt have it. Looks like we stick with the Methylcobalamin one. I'm fine with that. Thanks for helping me solve the mystery of the new kind of D3. :D Ken

OMG, could there be a House thread in the works?! I can't wait to see how they start next season! If you guys are all obsessed with NatGeo, the SceienceChannel, and DiscoveryHealth, I'm in trouble!!!
I wish I was a "cut throat bitch." I was hoping that I'd have a bad-ass scar from my neck surgery and it would give me some "cred," but alas I'm still just an innocent-looking Irish girl with a scar on her neck.

Cat, my kitties all get along famously. They snuggle and groom each other. They all like to lick each others ass, but no one likes to have their ass licked. Wouldn't you think it would be the other way around?
I got Dottie from the Humane Society. I just went to "look," but she kept reaching out of the cage to touch me and would meow whenever I paid any of the other animals attention. I'm a firm believer in "you want the one who wants you."

I know nothing about B12 varieties aside from cyano- and methyl- varieties. What do you guy think about moving from injections to sublinguals?
