So maybe it was the chocolate I treated myself to after each Lovenox injection instead of the Lovenox itself?

Chocolate contains magnesium, doncha know!
(and L-arganine and antioxidants)

Where can we sign up for a chocolate eating study? ;)

Though eating chocolate didn't stop me from getting PE. Hmm... maybe I just need to eat more chocolate! (just kidding!)
