wow, I really am buried with work, a toddler and my refereeing, not enough day light.
In any event, I hope all is well. I posted awhile back that my dad was geting some surgery. For those interested it went well.
I am starting to get nervous about these restrictive diets and breath tests. I think someone else mentioned they were going for them -MiaMia?
I wound up experiencing the same upper abdominal pain I had that first started this whole ball of wax. But it passed, I will be happy to get a diagnosis or something.
As for those lamenting about winter, I am sitting in my office at 6 pm and it is already getting dark out. The high today was around 71. This weekend will be nice, but old man winter is coming back , However, NOAA insists the NE will have a mild winter. I can only hope.
Everyone take care.
Drive-by - No time to catch-up on everything, two year about to get up.
I am not gluten-free. Doctor's orders until my tests are done. It stinks -- brain fog does not help in my profession. The d I can live with -- what is a couple of months after several years. Two biopsies reveal celiac disease related stuff, first was some sort of stain showed sprue, second revealed athropy of the villi (mind you within four months). I may have tropical sprue (wipples diease), or a myriad of other issues. But no science here.
I like everyone's new pictures.
Oh my! I finally got that! I thought you had two daughters! One son so far is enough, nevermind the daughter due in December.
Drive-by posting - I might have missed something.
Rachel -- have fun!
Tinkerbell and jennyj - welcome to the board.
For those wondering --- I am not gluten free yet --- darn doctors -- more testing to go. So, still have the same issues as previous posts. Yes, I did feel better on the gluten-free diet but, my family hx as previousy posted requires I get all the testing done. Hopefully done and over with by the end of September.
Too funny, Donna do you work at an attorney's office?
Yes, I am the one in the middle. I only put the pic up because it is the only jpg I could find. That picture was from last year, Army 98 Fordham 0. The two guys are my touch judges, I was the referee for the match.
