Belle, you cracked me up because I am in the middle of making chicken soup. In relation to the giblet approach...I have discovered after all these years, that when I would make it with cut up chicken I NEVER got as much flavor as with a whole chicken which I use now. Translation, albeit stretching, to use the whole body is better than in parts!!! Sorry, couldn't help it.
Rook13, that is such great news about your husband. We had so much good news over the holidays on our site and apparently it is still coming...excellent!
We are definitely entitled to other opinions and no one wants to deal with a depressing doctor, we have enough of that in our lives, yes?
Candy...Aggressive and positive, perfect combo! We do not listen to statistics as they change too fast and we are NOT a statistic.
Dad's Daughter..No time frames! We were not born with an expiration date stamped on the bottom of our feet. As for Cancer Treatments Centers? If you type that in to our search button you will see what others have said. I have heard pros and cons but then you can hear that anywhere.
For all you wonderful ladies: I practice my own kind of medicine...GUT feelings. They are usually right. Get opinions until you are totally satisfied. And to all of you....don't forget to take care of yourselves as well.
