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:

Let us know, Lo :)

The Vincent Book Club--great idea!

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.

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!!!

Gawd so do I! Hate the water--it smells and makes me sick every time :angry:

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!

    • 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.
