Thank you everyone! It's great to be a part of such a warm, caring, loving board.

I just saw this thread......don't spend a lot of time perusing the board early in the day. :)

Seth thinks he's ready for 4th grade math....I bought ahead on some books on ebay for my school curriculum and he's into them. :lol::lol:

OK, got Seth outta here and Talitha is feeding him lunch. I guess we'll delay her afternoon class start. She doesn't like penmanship and that's the next class. She loves to feed her brother but maybe she's stalling....she has a test today. :P

Rachel and those who mentioned chocolate.....

Mitch won't go for ice cream. We did have peach crisp a few nights ago since I had peaches that needed to be eaten. I think we still have a few chocolate chips though. Micah's birthday is next week so I want to save the brownie mix for him. Mitch called twice this morning while he was waiting for his truck to be loaded. We have a calling card that he uses....no cell phone. He doesn't expect to be home before dinner so we are celebrating tomorrow for my birthday dinner. I started the tradition of favorite meals for birthdays. Don't know what the kids will do this year being gluten free. I have recipes subs I can try though. :)

Carla,

We want to take a field trip down to see Noah's ark and the sanctuary lifelike exhibit about 4 hours from here. Just not to keen on totally messing up Seth's day. Although he'd probably be fine with naps since the car ride would be so long. There is also a wildlife safari next door to that. If we go before Micah turns 4 (next week) then we'll save on his admission charge.

Julie,

No special plans. I remember my mom had a 40th birthday party and I was kicked out to a friend of my parents for the night so they wouldn't keep me awake with all the noise. When my parents built that house they put in a teakwood dancefloor. That may have been one of the few times it was used. Mainly my brother and I, along with friends played in the basement where the dancefloor was. I still miss that house. :)

Evie,

I accept. Let's just celebrate the whole weekend! :huh::lol:

    • Today was the big day when I went to the GI and this is the first time I have felt heard and taken care of.  I told him about the two celiac blood tests  (in my first post) normal, he said that often happens, even with people who do have celiac and he needed to see the report and pictures from my endoscope.    I had filled out the appropriate Kaiser paperwork for Sutter to send all my medical records, but they ended up sending a disc with records to me, which Sutter said they could not use.  We also talked about gluten sensitivity v. celiac, and he said a lot of people are sensitive to gluten even if they don't have celiac. He said that my symptoms sound like classic IBS, which can be caused by any number of things.  He asked if I would try the FODMAP diet, which limits certain foods and requires no gluten. He said my symptoms sound like classic IBS, which he said can be caused by any number of things, including gluten sensitivity.  He has asked if I would try the FODMAP diet, which has restricted foods as well as no gluten because most gluten products have wheat in them.  So, since I am planning on going gluten free anyway, and I don't want another endoscope or blood tests if absolutely necessary, I am going to try the FODMAP diet and see what happens. I filled a consent form at the GI office today to have all my records sent to him so he can view the endoscope pathology report and photos.  I have an appointment with a Registered Dietician on September 30, and follow up appointment the GI in 4 months. 
    • gluten-free andee, according to an article on celiac.com  that talks about this subject see this link http://www.celiac.com/articles/24406/1/Celiac-Diease-and-Other-Autoimmune-Diseases-Equals-Low-Inflammatory-Diet/Page1.html Quoting the author "In the author's personal experience, a gluten-free diet has many limitations. The reactivity between alpha gliadin and corn, millet, oats, rice and dairy has been denounced as invalid by gastroenterologists and celiac disease researchers. While at a medical school in Missouri, biopsies did not show improvement in villous atropy until all alpha gliadin sources and corn, millet, rice and oats were removed from the diet."  Note this research is two years old but hilites the problem with non-gluten rice protein that you are having. It is the alpha gliadin sources that it causing the cross reactivity you are experiencing when you eat rice protein's. She says quoting "Celiac disease has gotten the most attention in antibody research, but the current data on cross-reactivity of antibodies is allowing a better understanding of gluten sensitivity. Antigen reactivity to alpha-gliadin can trigger immune attacks on many individuals beyond those with positive DQ 2, DQ 8 and TTG test results. She goes on to say "A low inflammatory diet customized to each person through testing for cross-reactivity or elimination diet protocols is needed to restore a state of health and well-being."  which sounds exactly like what you are doing. If you are still having problems after elminating rice a 30 day elimination of all the alpha gliadin proteins might be in order.  Corn is a common reactivity problem I hear with a gluten allergy from my friends as well as the obvious lactose problems that can be common among celiacs.  But rarely do you hear Rice allergy's brought up in context of a gluten allergy. I am glad you are making progress on finding your triggers. Read the whole article for yourself to see if there are nuggets of truth I did not highlight in my response. I hope this is helpful. Good luck on your journey to health. Posterboy,
    • One other thing - you might be able to tolerate some dairy if it's only the FODMAPs problem. I discovered that many cheese such as cheddar have effectively no lactose. And my wife sometimes makes 24 hour yoghurt, which also has effectively no lactose. Those have been fine for my tummy.
