How did I miss this? I am here, living in Grandville and also sleeved by GHP!

Well Howdy neighbor (Jenison here). Have you been to the Monday night surgical peer support group at GHP? IF not, why not? Monday 5-6pm, great group!

Well, I think I got a sheet once about it but never thought about it again. And now I just joined the Gazelle Sports training group to train for the River Bank Run. I want to do the 5k and they train Monday and Wednesday night! I'll think about it for after May 14th!

Hi Susanne,

I just looked at your blog and I am also on the liquid Calcium from costco. I can't swallow those pills either!!! They make me wanna gag. I am also taking GNC's Solotron chewable Multi-Vitamin wafer's (berry flavored) that are pretty good. Any negatives about the Multi liquid? I was going to try it but decided to wait. Good Luck on the 5K!!!!! You should be sooooo proud of yourself :)

Thanks for stopping by my ramblings :-)

I actually like the liquid multi, it tastes like a condensed juice -- but then I was always a huge fan of multi Vitamin juices that are available in many European countries.

I think the nutritional profile of the liquid is better than most "non-pills". I mean, the big fat pills are big fat because they were full of stuff, sometimes 1000x the recommended value. I noticed with lots of gummies, they are not even 100%. Well, the liquid is better than that.

You can try and dump it in some flavored Water, I like to mix Trop50 Blueberry with Water as my beverage (not a fan of Crystal Lite and the like) and I can put it in there too. But even if I take a shot of it, it's fine.

Oh, and the trick! Shot glass of multi and then the Calcium in the same glass. That way, you don't have as much calcium stuck to the walls of the glass, it slides off and less clean up :-)

Awesome..thanks!!! I will have to give it a try when I go back to costco. Anything to make my life a little easier I'm all for... :)

I know this post is a little old, but I wanted to add my two cents. I was sleeved on November 22, 2010 by Dr. James PIlkington in alma.

Deakay: I recently found some Protein bars with 30 grams of Protein at the Sam's Club in Saginaw. I've never been to a costco, but it would be nice to have one in the area.
