:) Fisher Road and 270?! Isn't that where the JC Penney outlet mall is too?! I used to live in Ohio and went down there a lot. Dh is an Ohio State Alumni-(was that game great or what last Saturday?) Thurman's in the German Village --Dh says the best burgers and Graeters ice cream omg the best. There is some pretty great ice cream in Ohio. I think it is Green's that is really good in Cincinnati area. Maybe you get that in KY and IN too? ( Oh, how I miss that dairy, lol.) I think there is a Fairfield Inn near the Fisher Road and 270 area. There are a couple of places to stay near there. Have a great time everyone, and bring back some good info. :)

Forgot to ask this-I used to go to a place where they had turtle soup that was so incredible-Don't know if it was gluten-free. Anyone know the name of a place in German village that has great turtle soup? I have brain fog I guess right now.

Sorry you can't make Columbus but it sounds like a good time in Ca. for you. Thanks for all the tips...........You'll have to post a maid of honor pic when you get back...........

And by the way did you lead Lynne astray in Vegas????

Lynne , I'll be on the look-out for a flying wheelchair....................ANd yes, bring $$$$$$$$$$$$$ and a cooler is good. You may want to hit the Raisin Rack in Westerville too............

I have been pushing or trying to push Everybody Eats to come too. Bruce is to let me know soon so he says...If you haven't tried his crusty rolls & baguettes yet you will be surprised. They are to die for.Check out their website.

Sorry I won't be able to drink with you ----1 beer and I'm done for!!!! But I would like to taste the gluten-free beer.I'll have to be very careful if I do because I'll be on the floor and get run over by a wheelchair....... I don't think one can get arrested from driving a wheelchair when in a tipsy state---can they? Hope to meet you.

laughter is good for the soul....

If you could get arrested for wheeling under the influence, I'd still be in Vegas!!!!! :lol::lol::lol::ph34r:

Chris -- no problem with regard to the faux pas! The Ostrich is hanging around -- We've been calling back & forth, but I've been sick for a few days and I'm guessing she has, too. Will have to give her a call tomorrow and see what kind of trouble we can stir up! I DO want to hear about the Maid of Honor thing . . . I vaguely recall that story . . . but seriously -- tell me that you DON'T have to wear a dress. That would just be WRONG, Okay??? Also, I need pictures . . . even if you ARE in a dress . . . .

Lynne, oops, was there a typo in my post about Eddie Bauer? Not sure why you were howling?

By the way, on Saturday morning and early afternoons, the outlet runs these "blue light" type of specials. Ex - "for the next 30 minutes, all women's jeans are $6.99 etc. Happy shopping!

odcdinah: I was just talking to my DH on the telephone, told him about your post with regard to the Eddie Bauer outlet!! We were howling laughing! :lol::lol:

We have decided that we're coming up Friday, Nov. 3 in order to hit the Eddie Bauer place -- that way we won't want to ditch the conference early when we really need to be there! Sounds like it is really going to be a good conference. Am looking forward to finding new foods, as well. Getting kind of tired of Peanut Butter Panda Puffs . . . .

Hey Chris . . . help me out here! PM or e-mail me as to where we should stay, where we should eat, etc. You are HIGHLY informed with regard to things of that nature (I know, I've eaten with you -- you speak with the entire staff, including the head chef -- how many people actually get to do that???) Wish you were going to be in Columbus then . . . would love to have dinner with you again.

So, guys, looks like it's a "go" for me and my DH! Will see you there!

Lynne

mamaw: Thanks for the heads up about the freezer . . . . we're going to take a large cooler & dry ice packets. Didn't realize that there would be so many goodies to purchase. Thank you, too, for telling me about how much you spent last year . . . . that way we'll know to budget that into our trip. It's gonna be FUN!!

JCPenney outlet is on the opposite side of town - far east, at Brice and 270. Unfortunately, I live way too close to there!

Hello!

I live in Columbus and would also really love to hear about the local eateries! Been here 4 years and my biggest complaint is that there is very little in the way of good food!

I've heard of the Raisin Rack but never been. Is their gluten-free section any better than Wild oats or Whole Foods?

I'm going to do the best I can to save up money for all the good shopping! I can see my husband's eyes rolling as I type this! LOL

As far as I know, there isn't any Eddie Bauer outlet, but Columbus is headquarters for all of Les Wexners stores. (ie Gap, Banana Republic, Limited, Victoria Secret) All of those headquarters have local wharehouses that occassionally have employee sales, but I've not heard of a public outlet.

KrisT:

If you haven't gone to the Raisin Rack I have to recommend HIGHLY you drive there as fast as you can! They have a much better selection than any of the chain organic/health food stores. The person who does their ordering is a retired physician. She also is Celiac. There is an entire isle of only gluten-free foods. A wonderful freezer section of only gluten-free foods. It is easy to navigate and there are more options there than anywhere I have shopped. I live in Bellefontaine. It is an hour from the Raisin Rack and I make a special trip in to shop for my food at least once a month. I wish I lived closer! I tell everyone about their store. Good luck shopping and let me know how you like it.

Raisin Rack RAWKS!!!

I just drove all the way up there to check it out and found their customer service superb, but the best part was selection! They way out-do the chain stores. You weren't kidding! I was in heaven picking out breads that aren't frozen and BEER I actually picked up a couple bottles of gluten-free beer! I hope I like it. I'm going to wait until tonight to open it with DH. I was told that when they open the new store across the street they will be expanding the gluten-free section quite a bit.

Thanks so much for the recommendation!

Oh yes, the beer!! I almost forgot that they sell Bard's Tale either individually or by the 6 pack. DS loves going there to pick out his gluten-free goodies (not beer ;) )

Glad you found some good stuff!!!

We were howling because someone finally affirmed that the Eddie Bauer outlet is on the way! Also, because you go two times per year . . . and we were REALLY jealous!!!!!

    • I have 2 insurance policies, one with my husband's company and one through mine. I also stretch out the more major work into the next year, so I can make the most use of my benefits. So, a dental implant for me takes about a year for me to complete.  I have the post put in at the end of one year and the tooth made about 6 months later. Honestly, the insurance company probably hates me because I max out my benefits every year. You do what ya gotta do!  I still have to pay for some of the work out of pocket but about 75% gets covered. If you pay cash for procedures then they usually charge a lower price. Haggle with the dentist over price. They like getting cash.
    • Did your doctor check for SIBO, H. pylori, ulcers, etc. when he was obtaining biopsies to check for celiac disease?  
    • Oh, and as I mentioned in my own post on pain, xanax. I swear. I tried it just to deal with the occasional panic I had at weird scary symptoms and clueless doctors. I am not a fan of long term use. But I recently found that .25 mg seems to aid with the neuropathic pain. It does not go away, but it helps. 
    • It does sound like a Glutening and you are just a few months into the diet.  It might help if you read our Newbie 101 thread under the "Coping" section.   Here is some information about rice milk: https://www.verywell.com/is-rice-dream-gluten-free-562354 Many, many celiacs are often lactose intolerant temorarily or permanently if you are naturally genetically inclined.  When I am glutened, I lose the ability to digest lactose for a while.   Salad?  Great but it can be rough on a sore gut!  Think soups, stews, easy-to-digest foods that you prepare yourself until you feel better.  Did your folks give you salad after a bout of flu?  Or did you stick with jello and broth?  I am intolerant still after three years to garlic and onions (the lactose resolved, thankfully).  You have a leaky gut (Google zonulin and Dr. Fasano who is a leading celiac researcher to verify that this is true) and that means you can become intolerant to anything (hopefully, just temporarily).   If you are 100% sure that you have had no access to gluten....did you eat out lately?.....then see your doctor.  Remember, celiac disease symptoms can change.  And here is the biggie.....it can take weeks, months or years to heal from celiac disease.  Two months in is nothing, really.  Why?  It takes time to figure out the diet and time for antibodies to come down.  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggerEd by gluten.  once triggered it can go on and on damaging your gut especially with repeated glutenings (accidental or through cross contamination). I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I concur! I literally feel your pain as well. Like, at the moment, lol. Did you have an endo to see inflammation or damage? I am close to begging my GI for carafate or something to coat and protect. How about testing your antibodies to see if they are still rising? I read somewhere here rice milk may not be a good option.  Folks here have also suggested to me to stick with whole foods. Limit processed. Especially stuff that is not certified gluten-free, like chex. I think small amounts of gluten are in processed foids and can add up. I too reacted to lettuce the other day like I was ingesting glass. My sibling  had a food sensitivity panel done and it came back positive for a few things he had been eating a lot of. He can now eat them, but had to cut them out of his diet. Lettuce is probably on mine.  I have been drinking carrot and pomegranate juice,  dandelion root tea with hiney, aloe water, lots of squash, fish. Mild, no garlic, no onions or hot sauce. No coffee. It sucks.  Inflammation can tick off other organs, you mention a "Pain below". Not exactly sure which side, but certainly call your doc Monday. Sooner if the pain increases.
