So you all had a puhrade and left us out eh? :( (sulking face here and forever more).

How about a post card exchange? Half ya'll ever done one of dem? The art site I frequent does them every Christmas. Everyone gets a name and exchanges some kind of post card, generally something artzy/handmaid. Which can be anything, nothing fancy schmancy or bootiful expected. Postcardz aren't terribly 'spensive to mail, and for now the US post office is still in bussiness. Sew it cud b dun, I tink.

We'd need a Queen to divvy up the names for the exchange tho, as there wood be no way to fairlee do it udderwize. And a cutoff date for participation, to avoid Christmas delivery issues. If this is a turrible idear, let it be known clear and loud! So far the Queen has not approved such an uddertaking, so it may be royally schmashed, as many things are schmashed under her highnass.

Hi to Triticus Toxicome! Thanks for driving by and snortin' your toot at us! :)

Another blast from the past, in honoUr of Thanksgiving! :)

I didn't want to be the first on the 200th page since I'm a newbie here but now that it's safe to post here is something funny that my brother sent me in honour of (Canadian) Thanksgiving.

THANKSGIVING CONVERSATION THAT SOUNDS DIRTY BUT ISN'T

1. Talk about a huge breast!

2. Tying the legs together keeps the inside moist.

3. It's Cool Whip time!

4. If I don't undo my pants, I'll burst!

5. Whew, that's one terrific spread!

6. Are you ready for seconds yet?

7. It's a little dry, do you still want to eat it?

8. Just wait your turn, you'll get some!

9. Don't play with your meat.

10. Just spread the legs open and stuff it in.

11. Do you think you'll be able to handle all these people at once?

12. I didn't expect everyone to come at once!

13. You still have a little bit on your chin.

14. How long will it take after you stick it in?

15. You'll know it's ready when it pops up.

16. Wow, I didn't think I could handle all of that!

17. That's the biggest one I've ever seen!

18. How long do I beat it before it's ready?

(I hope this isn't too raunchy ph34r.gif but it just made me giggle, especially #15)

Happy Thanksgiving to all.

This sounds fun! I'm not really artistic but I could send a nice Plaza Lights card!

whew! That didn't make me queen! I was a very uninvolved one for a couple of hundred pages.

Speaking of safety . . ...I just signed off a new req for black-belted security. Dunno wth last administration was up to, but the head of security is saying that w/ some new 'seniority by height' rule, the union won't allow a new addition over 5 feet tall.

Arrrgh how'll I ever find a short blackbelt willing to work for virtually nothing? (At least the work's virtual too)

Anyone got any of those?

PeOter's flashback to page 201..........

Yes, p300 should coincide w/ a coup. (Which doesn't sound like soup, does it soup-sie? laugh.gif )

But I feel somewhat ineligible for the crown when the time comes. (Reminds me of my permanent non-voting status on OMG. Forever the suffragent)

King Richard truly cannot be supplanted, and I'll pass on being Queen, regardless of my proximity to San Francisco. <tho I have been hit on more than a couple times. I'm not sure you ladies can know how disconcerting that is. At least unwanted advances in YOUR direction involve someone wanting to put something somewhere it's intended to be>

You might try "paying" a visit to Peter Jackson's HobbitTown - heck, they is even virtual people so pay will not to be issue and there's bound to be a black belt mongst them somewhere. Trouble is finding the town...

I think Ptaum is directing the question to Vincent, who might know of a certain carrot-top munchkin who has the reqired qualifications :P

But surely child labor (even virtual) would not be countenanced in Psilliville? That would send the Minister of Labor sallying forth on her high steed, cracking whips and busting heads and bums toot sweet.

    • Thanks Stephanie & Gemini for the info. that the 4 of 5 doesn't apply to children. I wasn't aware of that until now. 
    • I think the posters above have given you very good information and I will throw in my 2 cents worth.  I am surprised that they did not test her DGP IgA also.  I am sure that would have been positive.  They switched off with antibody classes and usually they do both tests for both antibodies.  IgA is more specific to Celiac but the IgG is also useful.  The testing shows your daughter is producing antibodies to the gluten in her diet. (DGP IGG). THe tTg shows positive for some damage or inflammation. You know........your daughter is only 4.  She hasn't been on the planet or eating gluten that long. It can take years for enough damage to occur for it to be able to be found on biopsy.  I would say it is highly likely that this is Celiac, especially with her symptoms. But because the damage hasn't graduated to bad enough yet, they won't diagnose her. I think you need to do what others have said and get all copies of testing and find someone else who will take a look and give a diagnosis, especially if they have you do a dietary trial and her symptoms go away.  That might be the only recourse if you want faster proof. I know I would want faster.  I would not really be happy if I thought I had to keep feeding her something that was making her sick.  If you keep her on gluten long enough, the diarrhea will probably show up. BTW.........the criteria mentioned regarding diagnosis does not apply to kids.  I know it's silly and stupid but most leading Celiac specialists do not go by this criteria for kids.......adults only.  Keep that in mind because it might come up.  You could recognize it but they might not. Have you considered gene testing, to help bolster a diagnosis? As far as false positives go, it's the other way around. False negatives happen more frequently than many people think.  It's a recurring theme here.  With her symptoms, which is what I had, a bloated belly and tummy aches are telling.  Have they tested her for lactose intolerance?  That can cause similar symptoms, although it sure won't raise those 2 blood tests.  Keep looking for Celiac because there are many red flags here.
    • This 4 out of 5 criteria does not apply to children. I was never given a reason why, but it isn't.     That said, you may try to get a second opinion from another GI who may be willing to give her a firm dx.  We were in your boat 6 years ago and while I'm sure I'll get slammed for it, I wish we had kept gluten in our kiddos diet till he scoped positive for a variety of reasons.  Again, even family is different and you have to find what is best for you!
    • Mnoosh, I had swollen lymph nodes prior to celiac dx and for a while after going gluten free. My neck as well as groin. The groin ones were the worst. Guess what? All gone! It's hard to recall a time line & consider that everyone is different but I think mine completely resolved within a year.  You've been given great information. Just breathe and then again, breathe. You're going to be fine. 
    • It is the only thing you have eaten, so it can't be anything else?  I eat it with no issues so I am not sure how you can be certain that is the problem.  All I am saying is that its sort of "your word against mine and the company's word".
