I think you are right about Charles. No way is he handing over. It was his birthday yesterday (along with one of my best friends, I can't quote birthdays for the rest of the family). Sorry you missed him.

You mean your best friend was not invited over for the birthday party?? :unsure: There were 64 other people he shared his birthday with, though, the oldest being 101 and she couldln't even speak, to say "Gidday, Charlie." They baked 64 cakes for him, each one expressing some aspect of Kiwiana -- don't know if he appreciated it or not. There was sheeps and pavlova with Kiwifruit, and of course a Kiwi (bird), and practically everything in between :lol: :lol: Video of the show tomorrow at six :P See how current we are down here?

Just one "info part" out of line and it can do things that you wouldn't think would be possible.

Like a 2nd tiny set of feet under someone's chin?

That the kind of thing we're talkin 'bout?

Well dunno about that one, but there are real people alive today with six fingers, and webed toes. DNA is packed with information such that your entire physical body can be recreated from a single strand of your dna. You body is an extremely complex machine so the amount of information need to do that is insane. The problem is lots of things can adversely effect DNA, and then you have mistakes in the creation of the physical body. Thus autism and other issues are created.

Fantastic pic, Lisa......and I did not know about Metta's passing -- I'm so sorry to hear this....

:lol::lol: Phorgot about this.. . .must remind The Ripper of this postulation of his. He's now 15 and may roll his eyes and fail to see the side-splitting humoUr in it......or not. I'll ask him for another "You must pick one of these" life situations.

What was the other choice, anyways? Canna recall -- We had to choose a life with two little feet dangling from our chins, or.. . ....what?. . ... :unsure: . ...

I've always wished to have webbed toes. .. .fingers too, while we're at it. I could just FLY through my pool lengths -- get 'em done in a quarter of the time.. . ..

Totally caught me by surprise . . . really, really laughing out loud here!! :lol:

Yep, that was our other option . . . I believe it is the one I chose, since I wear bangs fringe.

laugh.giflaugh.giflaugh.gif OMG....

Okay...Jack has another tough question for us all to debate.

Another choice to make:

You must choose either option, or you will be dead. dry.gifhuh.giflaugh.gif

Would you rather have:

A small (but unproductive) butt on your forehead....

OR

Two little feet dangling from your chin?

Oh, dear gawd.. . .. :lol: . .. . ...how could any of us have chosen between such horrific things?? I just dunno... . .. . ..I guess the forehead bum, as I, too, have bangs.

And who are these peeps? A blast from the past. One that will be missed.

I should've commented sooner, but was failing to remember whatever I thought I'd heard and when & I think the last I heard was Metta had gotten very ill ~ 2 yrs ago? I'm embarrassed that I don't remember better.

That day, after lunch, everyone else had places to be (incl 3 or 4 gluten eaters not pictured but who all complimented the gluten-free crust btw) except Metta & I and we settled in for a nice long chat.

Sorry to hear she's passed. A sweet lady who'll be missed by many, I'm certain.

Yeah...but not too sure about the tall guy with the odd shoes.

I gotta quit slouching in pictures.

    • Hi Calla, I think the safe answer is 12 weeks on gluten for a blood test.  I am pretty sure they say 2 weeks on gluten for the gut endoscopy.  But usually people/doctors don't want to  do an endoscopy before a positive blood test, so catch 22 there. There's a chance you still have active antibodies in your blood after 3 weeks off gluten.  But nobody can tell you for sure.  If you can get you doctor to test you now and in 9 more weeks if you are negative now, that might work.  If the doctor is willing to do 2 tests, that would be great. The best thing would have been to do all celiac disease testing before going gluten-free.  But sometimes it doesn't work out that way. The University of Chicago celiac center has an FAQ that answers some of your questions. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/i-dont-have-the-money-to-get-tested-for-celiac-disease-but-a-gluten-free-diet-makes-me-feel-better-is-it-okay-to-start-the-diet-without-being-diagnosed/ Welcome to the forum!  
    • Couldn't have said it better!  
    • If you are going for an endoscopy, then please ask for a celiac antibodies COMPLETE panel.  This will help you determine if you have been diet compliant (zapped by hidden sources of gluten or accidental cross contamination) and if your doctor misses the (possible) damaged areas during the procedure.    That way you can rule out celiac disease and THEN worry about the possibility of other AI issues.   I did this last summer.  I got really sick.  My GI thought SIBO right off the bat.  But I asked just to be tested for celiac disease.  Sure enough, I had elevated antibodies.  No need to test for SIBO or anything else at that point.  I just waited a few months for symptoms to subside.   Good Luck to you!  
    • That's good Megan, that you were tested.  Many people have the genes, but only some develop the disease.  Your doctor is right about celiac often appearing after some kind of physical stress or illness. The tricky thing about eliminating one food is that you body may be reacting to multiple foods.  So not getting better could mean you just eliminated one problem instead of 3. It's not unusual to have digestion issues for quite a while after going gluten-free.  Our guts are damaged and that damage has to heal.  But it can't heal until the immune system stops it's attack.  The immune system attack/reaction can keep going for weeks to months.  So it can be a slow recovery.  Often people report getting better and then getting worse and going back and forth on symptoms. What doesn't help is that our bacteria in our guts can get really screwed up by the disease process.  We can't properly digest things so there is more undigested food for bacteria to thrive on.  Avoiding sugars and carbs can help with that issue. Here are some starting the gluten-free diet tips for the first 6 months.  Some of these you have already taken care of: Get tested before starting the gluten-free diet.
      Get your vitamin/mineral levels tested also.
      Don't eat in restaurants
      Eat only whole foods not processed foods.
      Eat only food you cook yourself, think simple foods, not gourmet meals.
      Take probiotics.
      Take gluten-free vitamins.
      Take digestive enzymes.
      Avoid dairy if it causes symptoms.
      Avoid sugars and starchy foods. They can cause bloating.
      Avoid alcohol.

    • yes, I was tested for it. They said after stomach surgeries and other major things causing that much stress on your body you can become intolerant to gluten. It happened to my aunt as well who was in a horrible car accident. They said you can always carry the gene in your body and having that much stress on your body can start it.
