Hello all.

I just got back from a week long trip to Northern California to see my son and his family. Had a great time and plenty of gluten free food available. The zucchini muffin at the North Coast Co-op was to die for!!! I made chocolate cake for my son's birthday party, one regular and one gluten free (with Bob's Red Mill baking flour but the same recipe for both). Everyone liked the gluten free one better LOL

3 doctor's appt's on Thursday when I got back. Opthalologist for Diabetes eye exam - no issues see ya in a year!! - Gastro doc asked how I was doing, I told him great, haven't felt this good in my whole life or had this much energy. He smiled and said you look good too, you have color in your face again. Told him I had been cutting down on my pain meds and it seems to be ok and he said I will eventually get off of them and several others too. I can use my judgement on cutting down and then discontinuing. He was impressed that the diabetes meds were already gone. He then said "See you in a year!".

Regular (GP) doc, can't believe my blood sugar is so good since going gluten free and also commented on the color in my face and my energy levels. Off all my meds for diabetes now and he's finally convinced as he did an A1C test. Maintained my weight over 3 months didn't lose anymore or gain so both GP and Gastro doc's were happy with that. I have to see my GP every 3 months in 2011 just to keep a handle on this whole thing but that's ok. 2 out of 3 said 'see ya in a year' LOL

So in essence, I had a great trip, great doctor visits, and life is good for Judy! :D

That's great news. It does feel so good when our 'personal pharmacy' keeps getting smaller and smaller. Glad to hear everything went so well.
