FANTASTIC!! :D :D :D So great that you guys met up... . . .we need an Official Report of Minutes, please.... .. ..

We talked a bit about Suzzie's dogs and her cat. We also discussed why she's not been on the board and good old politics. And the most important thing we talked about was our trip and how it came about :)

KC could work.

We're in Arizona tonight, in a city with 28,000 residents. Limited food options, but we choose a steak place from the AAA book and check it out on the 'net. Family-owned business.

So we are seated, and the server is ready to take our order. I start into my queries, mentioning wheat. Well, she asks if I am a celiac, because she is too. We talked a bit about it. I felt completely safe in her hands. Good food and great service.

The journey west continues. Want some salt? Taken at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah Tuesday morning.

That's WardGirl in the pic.

Wow, you guys were so lucky to find a Tia Chi class in the salt flats like that! What are the odds on that? Wow! :)

Arizona!

WardGirl drove up the 5.5 mile ascent on a very rough track that was barely a road--her first real 4x4 off-road experience. Slow going--with stops it took about an hour for the climb.

More Arizona tomorrow, but tonight we had gluten-free pizza at Picazzo's. :)

DRAT!!!! I had a whole message written and inadvertently hit my mouse and POOF it was gone. Tony was home overnight because he and Rob went to Great Adventure in Mass. today. He'll be home Wed for hiss final appointment with is surgeon (his stitches look ilk Frankenstein). At least for a man it's a badge of courage.

I hope that this finds you all doing well. I keep up with the posts but the pneumonia (or possibly the 3 antibiotics I am on for it) wipes me out. Napping a lot and when I have the patience to read I've kindled almost all the books by Louise Hay. She believes you can heal yourself and steps you through it. At the least she's a very good writer and gives a lot of positive affirmations. Started making jewelry again and last Tuesday I had Selia (the girl I tutor) and her siblings and mom over for crafts. Of course I snuck a lesson in for Selia. As soon as I regain my strength I'll start back tutoring her one on one. It was easier Tuesday to have all of them over.

Tony surprised us with something special. The three of us are going to see "The Boss" on the 18 (I think I may have mentioned it in a previous post).

Well dear psillies my energy is fading and I have to try to stay awake until the laundries' done. Superman's been doing it but I thought I'd surprise him.

OK, off to seamy timer and nap until the laundry is dry.I miss you all a lot!

Love & healing hugs,

Loey

P.S he's looking into Law Enforcement internships for next summer. One is in Minnesota.That's the online that pays.I hope interns don't get gunssad.gif

With long draw out posts that I care about, I type them in Word first. Then I copy/paste them in to the forum window for posting. That way if something goes wrong, I still have the post. Just a suggestion. B)

I do the same thing as Vincent, except I type them in Winders notepad. The text is larger and easier to read in Notepad than in the reply window on the forum, so that's a nice added benefit.

Kick that laundry's butt Loey! :)

Nice pic of the Ward-Gurl and Peoter there!

So frustrating. I had an ortho appt for J once and I left after 2 hours. Was able to get him a better doc. Why are some doctors' offices really good at scheduling and some so bad?

Had a 9am appointment once - first person, and sat around waiting for half an hour. The receptionist told me that the doc didn't usually get in until 9:30 or so....

Had a new doc in a few weeks.

This is all really interesting in light of what happened last week in this household.....DD had an appointment for a colonoscopy, and usually there is about a month's wait for one of these procedures. She got the referral from our GP and the specialist's office called me the next day -- could we get in there in 48 hours? Wow....sure! And not only a three-day wait, but once we got to the appointment, we didn't even have time to open our reading material.. . . ..DD was called into the exam room immediately, and I filled out the forms. Talk about efficient.

But here's why: Before my daughter went in, the receptionist informed us that there was a sixty-dollar charge. I stared at her blankly. I said, "But my husband had a colonoscopy last year, and it was covered by the province". And she replied, "he must have had it done at one of the hospitals", (he did) "....and this is a privately-run clinic".

Aaaaaahhhhhh. That explains it. We had no wait time, ultra-efficient.....but that cost sixty bucks.

Ya get what ya pay for. <_<

We are on vacation in the Monterey CA area. We kayaked this morning and saw lots of seals, otters, birds and more large jelly fish than you could imagine.

...

Aw man, wish I felt well enough often enough to both keep up here and to pop over the hill to meet for a quick coffee or something. Your sched looks pretty packed!

I'm just 30-40min from the northern side of Monterey Bay, but don't pop over near often enough.

Those Watsonville strawberries are legendary! Some as big as a fist!

We are currently in Sonoma County, California, north of San Francisco.

A Psilly Psummit is planned for tomorrow morning in the SF Marina district.

Gah! Another!

:(

Nice AZ pic. Lots more forest in AZ than the popular "all desert & saguaro cactus" perception would allow. ;)

Haven't gotten any work done on the house the last two days, but I have been Suzie homemaker. The pirate and I picked about 10 pounds of blackberries yesterday, froze 6, and we're eating our way through the last 4. Just went out and got maybe 8 more pounds, so I'll make fruit leather. We'll get more tomorrow for coffee cake and jam.

Also, um ...acquired... a bunch of yellow plums from the neighbour's tree which I'm going to cut in half and put on the roof to try to dry.

    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
