I read that story, and I couldn't see where he had celiac disease.  Anyone want to help me with that?

 

 

"Eventually, doctors found he had celiac disease. A wasting disease. No one had bothered to look for such a condition in a fat man. Years of being in and out of the hospital, and no one asked why he was throwing up all his food. They joked it was probably for the best that his GI system wasn’t working well."

Thanksgiving dinners take 18 hours to prepare.  They are consumed in 12 minutes.  Half-times take 12 minutes.  This is not a coincidence.  - Emma Bombeck

Thank you Kareng.  I must have a worse case of brain fog than I thought.  When I looked again I don't see how I could have missed it.
