Ohhhhhh.......we'll catch whoever did this.  Don't mess with a Patriot from Boston!  It may take awhile but we'll find 'em.

 

Prayers of recovery to all those injured and our hearts to those who died.  :(

As the story continues to unfold, my heart continues to break a little more...and the anger within me builds.....fury, really. Prayers from up here to all those injured and lost.  Ottawa holds the biggest Canadian race weekend in a couple of weeks, and my family is involved -- my son and husband are volunteering throughout, stationed right at the finish line. We refuse to have this horrific act change where we go and what we do, but somehow things will never feel the same at these international events.....

Sending thoughts and prayers to the families and those affected.

 

I am so sorry another city has had to go through this. I lived in London for many years, and hated the threat of attacks like this. The various attacks there were far too close to home. The London marathon is this weekend. May it be a safe and happy event. Each year, amateur runners raise a huge amount of money for charity at this event.

 

Strength going forward to all of Boston.

Why are kids always getting killed and hurt in this country?  I don't understand the mindset of people who...ugh.  It makes me sad.

 

Thoughts and prayers to our world to be kind.

My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected.

What a very sad and frightening world we live in and explaining to a child the kind of world he's growing up in is so difficult when hes still so innocent and believes the good in people.

There's so much I want to say but feel too saddened, angry and yet speechless.

God bless

Homegrown for the past ten years :(

 

Stay safe Boston!  We all know how strong you are.  Our family stands with you.

 

For me....Oklahoma, Columbine, 911 combined to make me very fearful for about two years while my children were quite young...fearful of the world we were leaving my babies -- those babies are now 18 and 19 years old -- they have grown in the shadow of these events and I am proud to say are strong, brave young men.

 

I am no longer fearful of what is happening in this world -- I am a member of my local CERT team and suggest to everyone I meet.....prepare.

 

Do not be fearful -- be prepared and remain watchful -- if you see something "fishy" wherever you live in this "new" world report it to your local police -- NON-emergency.  Millions of eyes can see far more than any homeland security group.

 

Busy day...off to move my Mom into her new home...

 

Happy Friday Everyone :)

Got that right, my Bostonian sister. And it's happening right now.

Hopefully, they can take down the remaining one without any more casualties.

Boston Strong. No fear.

Truer words were never spoken!!!  "SEE SOMETHING - SAY SOMETHING!!!!  My son is 21 and wants to join the FBI. Hopefully the next generation will accomplish what we have only been able to start.

    • I found when I went gluten free I started eating more dairy and that gave me worse stomach aches and bloating than the gluten did. So now I have to avoid gluten and dairy.  Maybe you have a similar problem with something you are eating.  I hope you feel better soon.  
    • Hi! I received my "official" celiac diagnosis last week. I had an endoscopy last month that was originally looking for ulcers and h. pylori, but they did some biopsies of my duodenum since they were in the neighborhood and the biopsy came back "consistent with Celiac's disease" and later. They urged me to get my blood checked and follow up with my primary doctor. My blood work came back negative, but my doctor was confident it's Celiac so told me to stay away from gluten. I've been completely gluten free (or to the best of my knowledge) for 2 weeks now, and my results are mixed. At first, I felt great! My stomach was no longer CRAZY bloated once I stopped eating pasta and bread, my acne started healing, and the red rash on the back of my arms started to fade. That was the first few days. Lately, though, my acne is once again flaring up and I've been SO EXHAUSTED. I feel so tired all the time. Even now I have fatigue in my head, limbs, and I could hardly walk or move my body earlier today. I'm overweight and I like to go to the gym, but what used to be an easy workout for me is kicking my ass! I used to go to the gym and tear it up: HIIT on the treadmill followed by 40 minutes of heavy weight lifting. Now I can hardly finish 3 reps in my first set without feeling like a nap. I can't run anymore because my body feels clumsy and heavy. Also, I'm still bloated. I don't suffer from painful, acute bloating, but I struggle to pass gas and I look like I have pregnant belly. I think I'm also retaining water all over my body, and I'm not sure if that's normal? For whatever reason, I have this belief that water is mainly retained in the core and not arms, legs, and face. Anyway, I'd love to hear what you have to say/what you've experienced. Is this typical to first going gluten free?
    • Thanks Stephanie & Gemini for the info. that the 4 of 5 doesn't apply to children. I wasn't aware of that until now. 
    • I think the posters above have given you very good information and I will throw in my 2 cents worth.  I am surprised that they did not test her DGP IgA also.  I am sure that would have been positive.  They switched off with antibody classes and usually they do both tests for both antibodies.  IgA is more specific to Celiac but the IgG is also useful.  The testing shows your daughter is producing antibodies to the gluten in her diet. (DGP IGG). THe tTg shows positive for some damage or inflammation. You know........your daughter is only 4.  She hasn't been on the planet or eating gluten that long. It can take years for enough damage to occur for it to be able to be found on biopsy.  I would say it is highly likely that this is Celiac, especially with her symptoms. But because the damage hasn't graduated to bad enough yet, they won't diagnose her. I think you need to do what others have said and get all copies of testing and find someone else who will take a look and give a diagnosis, especially if they have you do a dietary trial and her symptoms go away.  That might be the only recourse if you want faster proof. I know I would want faster.  I would not really be happy if I thought I had to keep feeding her something that was making her sick.  If you keep her on gluten long enough, the diarrhea will probably show up. BTW.........the criteria mentioned regarding diagnosis does not apply to kids.  I know it's silly and stupid but most leading Celiac specialists do not go by this criteria for kids.......adults only.  Keep that in mind because it might come up.  You could recognize it but they might not. Have you considered gene testing, to help bolster a diagnosis? As far as false positives go, it's the other way around. False negatives happen more frequently than many people think.  It's a recurring theme here.  With her symptoms, which is what I had, a bloated belly and tummy aches are telling.  Have they tested her for lactose intolerance?  That can cause similar symptoms, although it sure won't raise those 2 blood tests.  Keep looking for Celiac because there are many red flags here.
    • This 4 out of 5 criteria does not apply to children. I was never given a reason why, but it isn't.     That said, you may try to get a second opinion from another GI who may be willing to give her a firm dx.  We were in your boat 6 years ago and while I'm sure I'll get slammed for it, I wish we had kept gluten in our kiddos diet till he scoped positive for a variety of reasons.  Again, even family is different and you have to find what is best for you!
