I cannot even express how relieved I am.  No more Oncologists until July 9th.

 

You guys here ROCK!  

 

I'm blowing hugs ands kisses to all of you.

 

Thank you for getting me thru this.

I just knew you'd be okay.

 

When I had my brain MRI for all the neuro symptoms,
and it was negative, I said to Jack tearfully "well, they looked at my brain, but they didn't find anything in there!!!".


which prompted laughter, of course. :D

 

Please, have a daiquiri for me, too! No, 2!!! 

 

SO happy for you, hon! xxoo

Thanks guys!

 

Last night Me and Bob, from the Red Mill, are getting things together to make brownies.  I'm gonna add walnuts and the walnuts I have are whole nuts.  So I hollar out to hubs in the garage, "how do I make chopped walnuts",  he pops his head up and starts laughing at me and says "grab a clever and have at it".  Now I'm thinking, did I really not know that?  In my defense, I thought some kind of kitchen appliance would chop nuts.  

 

I'm thinking of starting a community in Love2Travel's back yard for the "Cooking Challenged".  I know there are some of you out there who have never chopped nuts.  Anyone with me?

It sounds like you have been carried well!  I hope you will soon feel well strong, and recovered from gluten.

 

I am celebrating by making my first post for days.  My computer didn't let me post for at least 3 days.  I also had trouble reading the site.

Argh....there's nothing like renegade nutz. Nutz that go rogue. Misbehavin' nutz.

 

I ,too use the mini chopper.

 

but this whole discussion has prompted a memory of a funny joke.

 

Shall I tell it?

This works better as a visual, but here goes:

 

Little boy, dressed head to toe in a cowboy outfit goes into an ice cream shop and stares at the woman behind the counter.

She says: "well, aren't you adorable!" 

Kid pulls his little toy guns out of the holster, points them at her  and scowls,  "No, I'm not! I'm a cowboy and I'm tough, so don't make me mad!!" 

She plays along, saying: "Okay, cowboy, what'll it be?"

Kid curls his lip , points the guns again at her and says gruffly: "Gimme a sundae and make it quick!"

She can't help but smile at his tough guy routine, but asks; "would you like vanilla or chocolate ice cream ?"

Kid, becoming irritated snarls: "Chocolate and make it quick!"

She: "pineapple or hot fudge?"

Kid: "Hot fudge and make it snappy, yer makin me mad, lady"

She asks: "and do want marshmallow or whipped cream."

Kid, face turning red and waving the guns in her face yells "yer really pressing it....whipped cream! hurry it up!!"

She can't help herself: : "and do want your nuts crushed?"

 

and the Kid says>>>>>>>>>

 

 

Guess what the last line was????

 

Kid says:

Ohhhhhh...that's a good one Irish.  I was picturing Dennis The Menace as the kid and Zena, Warrior Princess as the Server.  She could do a number with those nuts.

it's.......

 

Lady: "You want your nuts crushed?"

 

Kid: "You want your boobies blown off?"

 

 

 

Probably crossed the line there, :ph34r:  but it is Colleen's celebratory thread and she likes to laugh, so I'm leaving it there. :lol:

 

for a few minutes......until we probably need to  "hide it".

    • Cyclinglady is absolutely correct, after hours of internet research the only gluten-free food available at JNB is a fast food chain called 'Nandos'. I was hoping for a bit more variety, but I'll take what I get.   
    • I'm so confused about my daughter's diagnosis.  I hope somebody can help.   My 4 year old daughter has a swollen belly, stomachaches, and lots of gas.  She does not have diarrhea or delayed growth.  Because of her symptoms and because it runs in the family (2nd degree relatives) I had her tested for celiac.   She was weak positive for TTG (IGA)  and strong positive for DGP (IGG)   TTG (IGA)  8   (0-3 neg, 4-10 weak positive, greater than 10 positive) TTG (IGG)  2   EMA: Negative DGP (IGG)  47  (0-19 negative, 20-30 weak positive, greater than 30 positive) Last week, she had her endoscopy.  The doctor found inflammation and little holes or bumps on her duodenum.  He started her on prevacid and said based on his observations, he was suspicious of celiac, but he would not be able to confirm until the biopsy came back. The biopsy showed no signs of celiac disease.  He said that he could not diagnose her with celiac without the biopsy report saying there was celiac damage.  He said he would categorize her as a potential celiac, keep her on a gluten diet and redo the endoscopy in a year or two to check for damage again.  My questions are: 1.)  If it is not celiac, something is causing her duodenum to be inflamed and have little holes or bumps on it, right?  Could it be a wheat allergy or gluten sensitivity?  What else could it be and how do they test for it?  Given her elevated celiac antibodies, how likely is it to be anything besides celiac causing the damage?  2.)  How likely are false positives for TTG and DGP?  I've heard they are pretty sensitive and specific.  Does getting two positives make false positives less likely? 3.) What have you done in this situation?  I want her to have an official diagnosis to make things easier at school and to feel confident that we are eliminating gluten permanently for a worthy reason, etc.  But, I'm having a hard time imagining keeping her on gluten and waiting for her to get more sick and have more intestinal damage just for a diagnosis.     Thanks in advance for your help.  I'm so overwhelmed and confused.  I hope someone has some insight and experience that will help clear things up for me.            
    • Yeah I actually live in Japan which is pretty similar, because Coeliac disease is rare over here so is the understanding and accommodating it. When I mention Gluten to some restaurants they think I am talking in English and they are unfamiliar with the word in Japanese.    So it seems I can write off my chances of getting some authentic Chinese gluten-free food at the airport, but at least there is a Thai restaurant in T3 so I won't starve. Its called  'Phrik Thai' for future reference. http://en-shopping.bcia.com.cn/store/739.html  
    • While in Boston I found Cheer's  Bloody Mary mix that says gluten-free on the bottle and have had no issues and  tastes pretty good 
    • I always assumed plain coffee was, but I have seen some controversy online about this. I know someone who is gluten free and only buys whole beans and grinds them herself because she doesn't trust how the grounds are processed.
