Good Monday mornign sills........though a sad one. :(

100 degrees here today....five better than yesterday. <_< Alas, am possibly heading to foothills today to help feed, as mentioned, about 75 phyrephighters. Now, normally this would sound titillating but.....today, will be about 93 degrees up there :angry: and two,

I'm an old lady now and most of these guys would be just chillens', I'm thinking :lol:

plus I have to take all my own food, AND I'm not camping there overnight so - a drive home late at night, which means little to no wine with the boys around the campfire. :lol:

decisions, decisions.

...and WIH??? was going to list MORE tatt on Ebay but paypal tells me I must 'verify my account' before selling 'owt else

Bev is in Massachusetts, so it is the same time for her as it is for you.

Padt! so glad yer not a doormat any more :wub:

OMG! It'll be so stinkin' hot up there. THAT was the reason I wasn't going to go, and now, I am, as have given in to all the pressure. This will be a very fun and easy trip. Plus, all that eye candy. :rolleyes:

I am happy with who I am and want only to be the person my daughter believes me to be :)

Thank goodness I don't have that to live up to; hard enough being the person I believes me to be :huh:

We've run into a huge snag wif the house we're planning to have built :angry:

And, pray tell, when has there evah been a house built that hasn't run into humongous snags?? Coulda told you NOT TO DO THIS (if you had only asked). Talk about major aggravations and marriage breakupstressors--this has to rank right up there, maybe at the top. Two years from now you will look back and laff (if yer lucky). Of course you will probably also have a very nice house (I am sure you will take special care with air conditioning and mold reductionhumidity control :D

Daggone right! I used to be a people-pleasin' doormat.

Now that sounds about as true as a moon made out of cheese.

Suppose I'd have to be the one gagging and barphing from the sidelines to get their attention

Somehow or other that never quite made it onto my list of attention-getting devices :lol: Very cute video though. That barphin' cat was one of mine, I'm sure. She was an expert! Didna know they took lessons in kitteh school.

Well, I thinks I has avoided the dreadful H place with the IV line :) , because my cellulitis has bowed to the onslaught of double doses of flucoxacillin (and so has me stomach , I might add) Take on an empty stomach :huh: :huh: indeed.

Roll on June, because they are predicting more snow within sight of our house today; t'is becoming a very early wintah. And cold!!! Have to go bake some yeast-free bread because Dh has concluded his sinus problems are related to candida and is going on anti-candida foods. He's eaten up all my pineapple already. :( Don't know what that has to do with it, but he assures me it is recommended. Have to watch what I say now because I keep finding him reading celiac.com when I'm not looking.

nighty-night, Tea... :wub:

Well OMG, it's 8:30 and look who's already home. :lol:

My boss, I have figured out, always makes things sound WAY more exciting and fabulous than they really are. :huh:

Um......I drove 90 minutes to get up there (no big deal but the last 30 are on a VERY windy, narrow road - paved, thank God) and........we..........sat................around...........and that's it.

:blink:

I didn't even CARE about the stupid firemen.....there were a smattering of cute ones, but I could hardly be bothered (the cute ones were VERY young, in fact nearly ALL were very young, the old ones looked fat and sloppy - I don't think firemen are as hot as they used to be? :huh: it's just the ones in movies and on TV that are hot <_< )

It was VERY hot, humid, and......I got so antsy, crazed with boredom and discomfort (and all the flies) and had to leave. They were quite puzzled as to why I'd only stay - less than six hours? - but I just HAD to get out of there, can't even EXPLAIN it. But my boss was in the cook trailer the entire time (only room for one in there, and HOT AS BLAZES, his comrade was cooking the civkebs on the grill, the boys were sitting around just staring vacantly, and I just

COULD NAE TAKE IT - gahhhhhhhhhhhhh!! :blink:

So driving down the mountain I decided that I just have a really, really low tolerance now - unlike the past - for pain, discomfort, and misery. I want cool cotton sheets, air conditioning, and a shower :lol:

Not to mention good conversation, some yummy g f snacks, decent wine, a lounge chair, and cool breezes when I camp.

Would be nice to have me sills there. Can you imagine? :rolleyes:

very cranky. Off to bed!!!

oh - shroomie!! meant to comment on yer post - where is it??? but very funny, the marriage-wrecking house-building part :o:lol:

(padt! take heed!!!)

g'night sills :)

Good morning, Psills!

Sooozle's Project Phireman was quite disappointing. .. ...I was hoping for a great, rustic, sublime, Steinbeck-ian tale. .. .....instead it was rather Hemingway-ish. ...

Alighted at the scene. . . . ...served the food, reclined and pondered. Descended the mount.

:rolleyes:

And no DH for Mini-minimom! 'Tis fab. But then, what in hell IS it? :huh:

:lol: :lol: :lol:

sat in my folding camp chair, stared at my young miscreant colleagues, swattted flies. Surveyed sweltering kitchen trailer and made my egress.

:huh:

<I don't know which author that would be - it's just Soozle on a tired morning :lol: >

dang!! so quiet in here!!!!!!!!!! :blink:

I awake to one post from em and nuttin' else?

WHERE IS EVERYONE??????

:huh:

gotta go kick Sophie's teacher's ass today. Can't wait. this master teacher is Satan himself.........such a semester she's had. Horrible, miserable, mean-spirited black-souled, sexually harassing, verbally abusive, alcoholic man. It actually made her physically ill, being around him every day - increasingly sick and miserable until she blacked out last week with searing chest pain as she could not describe, and ambulance was called. Did I tell you guys this already?

so - her gallbladder and giant gallstones were removed Friday....she is still in pain with some pyloric ulcer? 'tis EGREGIOUS. :angry:

so - get this - this EEEEEEEEEVILLLLE man (has a vendetta against her due to her WONDERFUL father and requested her as his student teacher <_< ) has now asked that she do lesson plans for the entire rest of the school year (almost a month). Um, the ba$tard's been teaching for 25 years, I'm SURE he doesn't need them. :angry:

So, we're gonig to take in what work she does have (she can nae lift it all) and *I* am going to put my foot down right then and there. *moo hoo ha ha ha ha ha haaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!!*

Should I take the Skull Cracker for extra affect?????

    • Now that my initial rage has calmed a tad.... your daughter has to fulfill 4 out of 5 of the diagnostic criteria. Second opinion can do a gene test. If positive, then she will have4 out of 5 of the dx criteria to dx without a positive biopsy. See: http://www.gastro.org/news_items/a-biopsy-should-not-be-required-to-make-the-diagnosis which says in part: The presence of signs and symptoms compatible with celiac disease. Positive serology screening (high serum levels of anti-TTG and/or EMA). Presence of the predisposing genes HLA-DQ2 and/or –DQ8. Histological evidence of auto-insult of jejunal mucosa typical of celiac disease. Resolution of the symptoms and normalization of serology test following the implementation of a gluten-free diet.   Also see: http://www.tenderfoodie.com/blog/2014/5/1/dr-fasano-on-new-gut-autoimmune-research-autism-clearing-up.html She can get a dx after her symptoms resolve on a gluten-free diet!
    • OMG!!!! The doc wants her to get sicker & sicker & do further damage so he can diagnose her? Don't do me any favors doc!!! I'm so spitting med right now I can't even speak! Find a new doc, take the records & get a second opinion. Maybe the next doc will have a freaking brain & dx your daughter. She should be dx'd! This is absurd in the extreme. The very least that should happen is the doc give her a dx now & then in a year or 2 have her do a gluten challenge & do a biopsy all over again but seriously, that would be just as cruel as what he's doing now. He's an ASS!

    • Cyclinglady is absolutely correct, after hours of internet research the only gluten-free food available at JNB is a fast food chain called 'Nandos'. I was hoping for a bit more variety, but I'll take what I get.   
    • I'm so confused about my daughter's diagnosis.  I hope somebody can help.   My 4 year old daughter has a swollen belly, stomachaches, and lots of gas.  She does not have diarrhea or delayed growth.  Because of her symptoms and because it runs in the family (2nd degree relatives) I had her tested for celiac.   She was weak positive for TTG (IGA)  and strong positive for DGP (IGG)   TTG (IGA)  8   (0-3 neg, 4-10 weak positive, greater than 10 positive) TTG (IGG)  2   EMA: Negative DGP (IGG)  47  (0-19 negative, 20-30 weak positive, greater than 30 positive) Last week, she had her endoscopy.  The doctor found inflammation and little holes or bumps on her duodenum.  He started her on prevacid and said based on his observations, he was suspicious of celiac, but he would not be able to confirm until the biopsy came back. The biopsy showed no signs of celiac disease.  He said that he could not diagnose her with celiac without the biopsy report saying there was celiac damage.  He said he would categorize her as a potential celiac, keep her on a gluten diet and redo the endoscopy in a year or two to check for damage again.  My questions are: 1.)  If it is not celiac, something is causing her duodenum to be inflamed and have little holes or bumps on it, right?  Could it be a wheat allergy or gluten sensitivity?  What else could it be and how do they test for it?  Given her elevated celiac antibodies, how likely is it to be anything besides celiac causing the damage?  2.)  How likely are false positives for TTG and DGP?  I've heard they are pretty sensitive and specific.  Does getting two positives make false positives less likely? 3.) What have you done in this situation?  I want her to have an official diagnosis to make things easier at school and to feel confident that we are eliminating gluten permanently for a worthy reason, etc.  But, I'm having a hard time imagining keeping her on gluten and waiting for her to get more sick and have more intestinal damage just for a diagnosis.     Thanks in advance for your help.  I'm so overwhelmed and confused.  I hope someone has some insight and experience that will help clear things up for me.
