Well, I guess the Summit should be renamed "Tea with Emily and Patti" :lol:

And then there were two.......... :lol: It will be a nice tea Patti, of course we will all be there in spirit :D (Silly Spirits)

Now, think about the Outer Banks in September or October (HIGH HURRICANE SEASON, BUT THE HOUSE IS CHEAP....hee, hee, hee.) Any interest???

Sounds lovely Lisa :)

Hi Sillies- Sorry, I am WAY behind the curve. Was with the famdamnly from Thursday to last night on an island in the middle of Lake Champlain. We were technically in VT but you could swim to NY or Canada (I swam to neither :P). I had a GREAT time still antibiotic free!!!!!!!!!!! However, several strange events occurred that I must tell you of:

Welcome back Bev :D Sounds like you had a fabulous time, strange events and all :lol: I'm so happy to hear you felt good too!!!!!!!!

You should ask the neighboUr closest to it if they participate in a forum of some sort & what their post count is. :)

Een-kway Ikki-nay!!!!!!!!! I can try, but using koe-lee-ack will be a struggle.

Lisa? Interpret? At elem school? Huh? :huh:

Or perhaps heron addicts.

We have landed in Philly............ :)

Amanda!! What in hell?? You do NOT need that job. Quit, I say! Meet us in Philly!

I am SO disappointed that you won't be here with Patti and me. :(:(

Okay, Patti, it's you and me....

I've scouted out our Starbucks. Looks like it will contain our mirth and hilarity, but only JUST.....

I am SO burned out from NYC.

Between the Empitre State Building, Times Square, Staten Island, Broadway.....mygawd, I'm a wasted shell.

Many hilarious things to recount to you all, but Patti gets the in-person, in-depth, first-up edition in approximately 48 hours..... ;):rolleyes:

OK . . . can't be bothered to go back and quote . . . let's see how much I remember . . .

Jess - :lol::lol: - my thought's exactly, best thing to do with a neighbor like that is mess with her mind!! It would be fun to borrow another baby from someone and then Amanda could say something like "We were at the playground and I thought this was Landen, but now I don't think so. Do you think Jen will notice?" or "Can we borrow some beer? Landen is not wanting to go down for a nap and I want to put a little in his bottle so he'll get sleepy."

Nikki - grating - :lol::lol: - damn butterflies - :angry: - :lol::lol:

Amanda - OUCH on the meeting comment.

tom - yes, I think we're going to have to distinguish the two Lisa's some how . . . perhaps we could call (the new) Lisa, Curly . . . think of all the fonedick possibilities . . . and so both of you Lisas know, you have no say in this.

Bev - sounds like a fab time.

LisaGoose and Sarah - I'm spending the night in Asheville on our way to Fripp for vacation. Either of you close by?

I think so... arms are still pretty bad, but my legs definitely seem to be getting better. It did jump the bridge of me nose and is trying to get going on the other side. Every time I glance in the mirror, I say, "Nuh-uh! Stop that!" :rolleyes:

Hopefully it's working it's way out of your system. How are you feeling otherwise?

Emotionally, better than I had expected to be at this point... makes me feel even more sure that the Prozac was NOT doing its job, and was instead making things worse. <_<

Physically... not great, but definitely not terrible. Still having the electric-shock-tingles, pounding heartbeat, and dizziness- all of which leads to nausea. But thank God, it's not constant... comes and goes. From what I've read, that could last for MONTHS :( ...but doesn't always. For some people it only lasts a few weeks... and everyone else is in between.

Absolutely can NOT sleep without some kind of medication- I gave up even trying for now. And odd dreams... And fatigue...

I'm not feeling great, but it's a huge relief that the emotional storms have died down. A couple days last week were completely... unbearable. But I've felt really good emotionally now, so- I'm happy about that. :D

Some people shell out a lot of money on controlled substances to feel this way. Maybe you could just add something to induce hallucinations and pretend you're back in college.

Ah Jess, there is a reason for the name.

LEDGEND has it... that Pirate would walk their old nag horses up and down the dunes with a lantern around the horses neck. It would look like a ship rolling on the sea. The other Piratiers would approach what they thought was a ship and run aground onto the dunes. The Pirates would salvage the booty from the wrecked ship. Thus, we have the name Nags Head. Now, Kitty Hawk, Kill Devil Hills and Whale Bone Junction - I haven't a clue.

Romantic, naw.

Done. AND......NOT in my Reeboks, but in my Birks, if you can imagine.

Beat DH, too. :ph34r::P

I had trouble singing in this @#!!@#* humidity. It's almost as bad as Ottawa.

OMG....We have a FREE happy hour at this hotel....FREE alcoholic beverages in their very swank lounge from 5:30 to 7:30 pm, and free snacks - - gluten-free salsa and corn chips, and sliced fruit!

We're doing some Ben Franklin things tomorrow......

He really was quite a Renaissance man, now, wasn't he? :)

Furthermore... The Outer Banks are the final resting place of more shipwrecks than anywhere else in the world. I have a map of them around here somewhere, probably still packed in a box, and it's amazing! There's so many shipwrecks off the shores, that it's harder to find bare ocean bottom than to find a shipwreck.

So romance is an accidental occurrence that stems from cowering under the covers to avoid the undead, seaweed-laden sailors searching for the descendants of those who caused their predicament?

    • I think the idea of grinding your own at home stems from the thought that flavored coffees might be ground on the same machines.  The grinders in the grocery are not cleaned between uses.  However, I have not found a flavored coffee bean that had gluten, so it's probably not a real concern.  For coffee that comes from a factory ground, I wouldn't worry at all.   Machines would be cleaned between flavors and nothing but coffee could be made on the machines or even in the same building ( everything made would taste/ smell like coffee). if you still have doubts - I went to the International Celiac Disease Symposium a few years back.  This is held every few years in different countries for medical professionals that study and treat Celiac.  They present research, etc.  All food served was gluten-free.  We drank a lot of plain, already ground, coffee!  A lot!   Coffee is not on any lists as a gluten containing food.  Talking legitimate organizations - not some blogger or pseudo- science website.   After all this, if you still doubt that coffee is gluten free...... Then don't drink it!  It leaves more for me!    
    • To answer some of your questions.... Non celiac gluten sensitivity does not cause any damage to the small intestine so that is not the source of the "little holes or bumps".  You need to get her records including the report of the endoscopy to see exactly what it says as well as the pathology report of the biopsies. You should always get medical records anyway & keep a copy for yourself. How many biopsies did he take? There should be a minimum of 4, ideally 6. The small intestine is very vast even in a small child. An adults is the size of a tennis court! That's a whole lot of territory so biopsies can miss damage especially when enough of them are not taken! She has 2 positives on the serum panel. This crap about "weak" positives should be thrown out of the nomenclature! A positive is a positive, weak or not! Her DgP IGG is way over the range and extremely telling. As far as my knowledge goes, there is nothing else that causes a positive DgP IGG other than celiac disease. False positives are really rare and to have 2 false positives would be astronomically rare! You are right & smart that she really does need an official diagnosis! IMHO, keep her on gluten for right now. Get a second opinion pronto & I believe you'll be able to get her a dx based on the 4 out of 5 rule if nothing else. I wouldn't think it's going to take more than a month to get to see another doc for a second opinion. Then you can take her off gluten. Kids heal up really fast, way faster than us old geezers! I'm sure as others  wake up & get on their computers they will be along to voice their knowledge. I am in the eastern time zone & rise before the birds so I was on here early. Hang in there mom! You're doing the right thing!
    • Now that my initial rage has calmed a tad.... your daughter has to fulfill 4 out of 5 of the diagnostic criteria. Second opinion can do a gene test. If positive, then she will have4 out of 5 of the dx criteria to dx without a positive biopsy. See: http://www.gastro.org/news_items/a-biopsy-should-not-be-required-to-make-the-diagnosis which says in part: The presence of signs and symptoms compatible with celiac disease. Positive serology screening (high serum levels of anti-TTG and/or EMA). Presence of the predisposing genes HLA-DQ2 and/or –DQ8. Histological evidence of auto-insult of jejunal mucosa typical of celiac disease. Resolution of the symptoms and normalization of serology test following the implementation of a gluten-free diet.   Also see: http://www.tenderfoodie.com/blog/2014/5/1/dr-fasano-on-new-gut-autoimmune-research-autism-clearing-up.html She can get a dx after her symptoms resolve on a gluten-free diet!
    • OMG!!!! The doc wants her to get sicker & sicker & do further damage so he can diagnose her? Don't do me any favors doc!!! I'm so spitting med right now I can't even speak! Find a new doc, take the records & get a second opinion. Maybe the next doc will have a freaking brain & dx your daughter. She should be dx'd! This is absurd in the extreme. The very least that should happen is the doc give her a dx now & then in a year or 2 have her do a gluten challenge & do a biopsy all over again but seriously, that would be just as cruel as what he's doing now. He's an ASS!
