Mocha in my cup...

Just got back from my first class of Akihito-Jutistu (Spelling???)

So mid November my entire family will be 1st degree black in American Freestyle Karate, and hoping for "first yellow" in Akihito.

Akihito will make my 3rd martial art, my wife's forth, and my son's second. :)

That is awesome. My son is the Kung Fu Master in our household. He started at 6 and is still going strong at twenty. He studied with a Sifu who studied with Bruce Lee. The discipline and ways of the art helped to develop a strong confident young man. Most people don't realize that you're only supposed to use your skills when t's absolutely necessary. I think your next series of books should be about Martial Arts.

I think it's so great that your whole family participates! Way to go!!!

Yes, they are on Amazon, B&N, etc. I just cannot link to them in a post under the forum rules. I will PM details.

I'm on the third volume and will be disappointed when I finish it. To me that's a sign of a great book - you don't want it to end. I've been telling everyone in all of my doctor's offices (that's a LOT of people) that have a Kindle, iPad or other electronic wonder about Vincent's books. Yesterday two people put the info on their iPad and were going to look it up when they got home.

Since Vincent is somewhat modest and doesn't push his book I'll do it. GO OUT & GET IT!!!!!!!! It's well worth more than he charges and is absolutely awesome, intriguing and well written. If each of us purchase it we can start a new thread and discuss the book. A "Vincent Book Club."

OK, off to another doctor. She's an hour away so I'll get in some reading time. My pain doctor increased my Oxycontin. I was a real space cadet this morning until I ate something. The higher dose is helping. This is the longest I've been at my computer for a long time. I miss all of my psillies.

This week Rob was supposed to hear one way or another about the job. My warped logic is that I don't really wan to move so he'll get it. Please say a collective prayer that he gets it.

Lot's of love and hugs,

Loey

I'll be back the next time I feel up to it my PCP told me it takes 4-6 weeks to be back to normal (that will be hard as I've never been normal) wacko.gifwacko.gifwacko.gifwacko.gif

Loey . . . "normal" is totally over-rated!! . . . fingers crossed for Rob

Had my annual boob smashing and squishing today. Best part about the day? . . . it's a whole year before I have to do it again.

Headed out to Five Guys for supper . . . I love that place.

Nothing personal male psillies but a prostate exam has nothing on a mammogram. Sometimes I think it's easier to go though childbirth than a mammo because at least you get a baby out of the pain.

BTW, when I was in the hospital a male student nurse had to cath me. I've been cathed many times since Tony was 2 (interstitial cystitis) so although it's extremely painful I know to relax. I wish I had a camera on his face. OK, pardon me if that was TMI.

OK, I've contributed my share of grossness for this sitting. Time to get to volume 3 (halfway through) and see what's going to happen next (another sign of a great book is that it's not predictable!

Hugs,

Loey

Well, no grossness here, just lots of apple and pear sauce. Did see something fun: http://blog.hemmings.com/index.php/2007/04/26/almost-free-garage-heat-just-drink-a-lot-of-soda/. The pirate and I are gonna build one of these these winter, hopefully bigger. I'll see what kind of material I can get from freecycle and I'll hit up friends for the soda cans. This really looks like something even I can do, but the pirate loves clever crafty things from scraps (did I tell you about the animal trap he made from crap in my back yard?) so he's looking forward to it too.

That is a great solar heater! I think beer cans would work! Too bad most gluten-free beer is in bottles.

J made an AC for his room with ice in a cooler, a fan & copper tubing & a small aquarium pump. I believe the Pirate and he may have a lot in common.

My daughter, 3, joined in the conversation with us and my 5 year old.

He asked what the worst thing in the world is. We were just getting into a discussion about being sick, when little one pipes up

'Having hiccups in the middle of when you are trying to sing'.

Yeah, I hate it when that happens ;-)

Hi! Just got back from the trip from Hell to Florida. We had to drive to get the car back down there (my grandmother is a snowbird, and my mother lives with her cuz she's 90) so my mother and I spend two days driving the car down there. We arrive and (in order) the: front door, refridgerator, air conditioning, dishwasher, ceiling fan, and internet were all broken. I hate Florida.

On a more psillie note, I have three friends who are pregnant and all due by Christmas, so I'm going to have lots of babies to play with!

A broken front door? that's an accomplishment!

Other peoples babies are soooooo fun! You can give them back when you are tired or its the second diaper in an hour!

Heehee,that's the whole point of other people's babies, in my opinion!

The front screen door, or storm door I guess, apparently it got ripped open by the wind of a hurricane and it bent the hinges all up and everything. When we got there a neighbor had duct taped it shut. :lol:

The Vincent Book Club--great idea!

This is some good news :D :D :D

Never been to 5 Guys, but I hear all great things about it. We went to Elevation Burger yesterday after Halloween costume shopping--their fries are awesome :rolleyes:

BTW, when I was in the hospital a male student nurse had to cath me.

I had to have one after my younger son was born (c-section). In those days (that phrase makes me sound so old) they kept you there for a week. Anyways, to add to my mortification, I went to high school with the resident. :o:unsure::ph34r::lol:

That is so cool!!!

It's not just me! I brought my regular shampoo and conditioner with me (you guys know how it is) and by the end of the week my hair was all crunchy and straw-ish. It was horrible. I got home and after one shower, nice and soft and smooth again. Stupid chlorine. Blech!

On a more positive note, I am on a better schedule and not having trouble sleeping at night anymore. Yay!

    • Food tolerance issues post-diagnosis
      In light of the studies that found some probiotics that are labeled gluten-free yet tested over 20ppm I wouldn't touch them. Now those would be the powder or pill forms. Yogurt is not affected by that. Since you don't have a problem with dairy then I would say eat some yogurt every day. I like Chobani Greek because it has more kinds of cultures. Remember now that powder or pill forms of probiotics do not come under the gluten-free labeling law. The same for OTC & prescription meds. You need to check every single one of those. There are a few online sites where you can check things like that or ask here but as far as prescription meds -- call the manufacturer EVERY TIME. I also wanted to tell you in case you didn't already know that since celiac is genetic and can present at ANY age then all your first degree relatives need to be tested every 2 years in the absence of symptoms and immediately if symptoms present between the 2 year periods. As far as the digestive enzymes go, I tried Digest Gold for a short time & it really didn't seem to do anything for me however I will say I had a lot of issues going on at the time so I might not know if they helped or not. I decided to quit them in order to take that out of the equation so I could try to pin down what was causing me distress. The fewer things in the mix you know. I have heard people report the same as your consultant said. Some say they helped & some say they didn't. Remember Jammy, you're just in the beginning stages. I KNOW you want to heal & heal FAST. Been there, done that! It's like this: you didn't get sick overnight & you're not going to heal overnight. Patience is the watchword here. It's hard I know! You just want to get on with your life. We can all relate.  Again, I'm going to say to eat foods easy on your gut. WELL cooked foods. No raw carrots, coconut, nuts & stuff like that. Easier on your gut would be nut butters.... peanut butter, cashew butter, almond butter etc.... It's sort of like being a baby ---  soft, easy to digest foods. Bone broth is a great healer for you gut & extremely nutritious as well as being easy on the digestion. Here's just one recipe: http://wellnessmama.com/5888/how-to-make-bone-broth/
    • Food tolerance issues post-diagnosis
      Thanks for the tip! Will try that out in the next few days. By the way, has anyone had any joy with probiotics or digestive enzymes in terms of symptom relief/speeding up the healing process? I asked my consultant about this when I saw him last week and he said that some people find them beneficial while others don't, but obviously I'm keen to try anything that may help, with uncomfortable fullness/bloating/gas still being my main issue  - is it worth giving them a go?
    • Are The Following Gluten-free?
      I realize that this is an old thread but I would just like to say something about label reading. Just because a product says gluten free on the label doesn't mean that you don't have to read any further and can have complete trust in the product.  There are a lot of products that state that they are gluten free on the package and then you find out that they are processed in plants that also produce wheat products. If you are super sensitive, you need to know that information. I am afraid that there is no escaping reading labels in supermarkets unless you know that the company makes it's products in a truly gluten free environment (even then you should read labels because ingredients can and do change, even in products made in gluten free facilities), It's a pain to stand there and read labels but if you are super sensitive, you might just have to do that. For example, I am gluten and lactose intolerant but also sensitive to nuts and sesame. While it may be fine for other gluten intolerant people to eat something that's labeled gluten free which is produced in a gluten free facility that also processes nuts, for me it is not.. 
    • Golden Bell Pepper Soup (Gluten-Free)
      Dipping your spoon into this bell pepper–sweet potato combo is like dipping into a bowl of sunshine. It's stunning—and the perfect antidote to a gloomy winter's day. This soup also freezes well, so if you're not serving a crowd, store the leftovers for a later date (or make a double batch). I like to enjoy this soup accompanied by my Massaged Kale Salad with Spicy Hazelnuts View the full article

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
