I am also thankful for this forum. I have learned so much more about this disease and how to deal with it than I ever did from any doctor, GI or otherwise. Thanks to everyone who has contributed to my knowledge! :)

I am grateful to all of the moderators who volunteer their precious time here.

I, too, learn SO much here and do not know where I'd be right now without having had this forum!

"Happy Turkey-Day to all!" - Scott, too!

oops - and a "Happy Tofu and Veggie day," to any herbivores...

Me too! I love this site and thank God for it. It's helped me to cope at living in a poisonous world full of gluten. I was so confused and depressed prior to finding all you super knowlegable people. I'm fairly new here but want to thank ELONWY for making me laugh everyday, JENVAN for a beautiful, caring spirit and positive attitude, RICHARD for being so unbelievably smart and celiac3270 for being such a mature, courageous kid (you give me hope for my son). I sound like I'm at the Oscar's. Sorry :lol: Just have to say that I appreciate all of you.

Wish everyone on this site a wonderful, gluten-free holiday!

I too, feel the same as Mart. There are so many of you the have guided me through the roller-coaster of Celiacland. Karen for her everpresent suppost, Kaitie for her everpresence, Richard, the word of an expert, Shirley, for thinking that everyone should know how to milk a goat, Tiffany for her knowledge and great research, celiac3270 who will do great things in his life. (esp. "You know You're a Celiac if...)

I don't mean to leave anyone out. You guys are my C-friends and I would like to meet you all some day.

Thank you, all of you for your help, in guiding me through this disease. :):)

Best of Thanksgiving to All.

Shirley, for thinking that everyone should know how to milk a goat

I really don't know how to milk a goat--seriously, I'm a New Yorker, lol.

Thank you to everyone--particularly Scott--he does so much more work than us moderators pinning topics--and all the people who post here :)

I agree also, without Scott, none of us would be here if you really think about it. His dedication must be amazing to keep this running and all the work that goes along with that. Kudos Scott! You rock! ;)

1) My Assitant - Loading. Please Wait...

2) Multiple calendar events

but if you see anything else please let me know.

Thanks again and have a great turkey day!

Yes--I had noticed that assistant issue just now when I logged on. Cool updates :) -- the revamped posting options, warnings are back, new general formatting. What's the new icon? The V-thing--just wondering if that had something to do with celiac like the old wheat icon or if it was some default icon that came with the board update?

Thank you for all of your hard work!

    • I figured I would update those who were wondering.  I have gotten the appt. so far moved up to August 30. I am waiting to have gene testing done via swab for all 3 of my kiddos tomorrow. My daughters celiac antibodies came up negative but her IgA is low which the ped said could cause false negative antibodies for celiac so she will need to see a GI dr. also. The pediatrician is going to call the GI to try to get them in sooner. I am keeping them all on a gluten diet until the GI dr. decides what to do. I am on the cancellation list already for my son, however I am not going to be persistent with my phone calls to them until I have the results of the gene test. I really want that result in my hand before going to the GI dr if I can. Maybe if he is positive, along with his bloodwork and my history they can forgo the endoscopy. But he will eat gluten till then.  My husband and I have been very honest and upfront with him as to what is going on and the possibility of the endoscopy and what that entails and although scared in general he seems ok after assuring him that since I have it he has me to help him every step of the way.  Going through his current diet with him I realized that he is truly on such a low gluten diet that I am actually surprised his bloodwork shows antibodies at all!  So I told him to make a list of allllll the gluten he could possibly think of eating and he needs to pound it until the GI visit or endoscopy. Funny thing is everything he keeps thinking of to want to eat...is already gluten free!  The other night we were at a friends and he asked if he could be done with his hotdog. I made him finish just the bread 😂 Thanks for your help and advise and I will keep y'all posted on both kids!  My oldest is a ok as far as all his antibodies. Just actually had a follow up for other immune issues and all his levels are now normal!
    • I like your plan Cara, I may have to include it in my sons.    Poor little guy is still very very sick. I think he is resisting and cheating, despite having the support of two other siblings and a 100% gluten-free home. 
    • Despite it being a nightmare, I did wait for my kids to get biopsies. At one point I had one severely ill child gluten-free and two more waiting having to eat it. It was worth the wait though and I think long term a biopsy may be worthwhile, especially for school. I have already had issues with schools and camps so having a firm diagnosis has been helpful. 
    • Knowing that the reaction to gluten in celiacs is an uncalled for immune system reaction, I was thinking of how a cure would be possible. Maybe a medicine that somehow turns off the immune system. The only thing that i've heard do that... HIV.  obviously that's way worse than celiac. Just some food for thought.
    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.
