Hi everyone,
I've been off the board for the past few months, going through a divorce and all the changes that such a drastic decision involve. Wow! I am so happy to be a part of this group, and I feel blessed to be in such great company! Thanks to you all for being there. Welda

I was wondering how you were doing also! And how is your grandson?

Sorry about the trouble you've had, but we sure are glad your back!

God bless,

Hi,
Here it is the middle of October already, and I just now got to see your messages! They mean so much to me--thank you. At the same time I was going through the divorce, my grandson's mom decided that he should enter daycare (he was almost one year) and abruptly put him in five days a week. That was traumatic to say the least, but then later she decided that our baby probably didn't really have Celiac, so she started him on all the foods I had spent a year avoiding. Her doctor at Kaiser did a blood test and said it was negative, so at 18 months our baby is still eating all those forbidden foods. I captured a stool sample of his two weeks ago and sent it off to Enterolab, where the original diagnosis had come from, so I am waiting now for the results. Because I had to start working 2 jobs I have had little time to babysit or even visit family, but next Thursday I get to keep my grandson all day! It is a miracle.
I have faith that everything works out for the best, so I am looking forward to my life being even better than before. I had retired after 25 years as an elementary school teacher, and 3 weeks ago I took the Law School Admissions Test in anticipation of applying to Law School. I am hoping to go on a scholarship, as I did when I earned my Master's degree in Education. I almost cry when I think of getting to attend law classes. I love to learn, and have always loved school.
Throughout all these changes my health has stayed excellent, and I am sticking to my rigid diet (meat, fruits, vegetables, nuts & seeds) strictly. I hope that you all are also feeling great! Welda

Welda:

Sorry to hear about your grandson. I know its hard on them to leave a "comfort zone" then to be thrown back into eating foods that make him feel bad has to be tough too! You two enjoy your gluten-free day together :rolleyes:

CONGRATS on going back to school, that is awesome! You keep it up, sounds like you are doing great. :D

Take care & God Bless

Hi,
Well, it is October 26th already, and as I sit here tonight reading through the messages, I am gratefully reminded of all the times in the past 3 years when I have turned to this website for inspiration, encouragement, and information. I want to say thank you to each and every one of you for taking the time to offer your support.
I had such a beautiful day with my little grandson (18 months old now) and it was just like old times, laughing, playing, singing, and dancing. Being healthy is such a blessing.
I passed my Law School Admissions Test! Welda
