Hey ya'll! Just wanted to let you all know that my son in law is being deployed today. He is a marine. For those of you that pray please pray for him.
Their baby boy is due the end of May. Originally he was supposed to leave in June, now he has to miss the birth of his first child.

Started on this journey w/ my 9 yr old son after a bout w/ the flu in the fall of 2009.
2 neg celiac blood tests, mine was also neg. No endo done. Son had x-ray, showing severe constipation. Son has latex allergy. KP for both of us.
Long family history of bowel problems, auto-immune and all sorts of cancers. My G-mother informed me that she was put on a gluten free diet after she had my mom (1950's), of course she stopped when she felt better. She has had problems ever since I can remember.
So here we are! I do have my son's Dr to thank for even bringing up celiac! Thank You Dr.B!
My adult daughter also has been helped by eating gluten-free.

My stepson is an Army Major with two Iraq deployments behind him. He is scheduled to be deployed to Afghanistan this October. ENOUGH ALREADY! I don't like having our young men in harm's way. It's time to get have an anti-war demonstration. Prayers are aloft for all of them.

If anyone is interested in sending care packages, check out www.booksforsoldiers.com or www.sponsorthetroops.org. My husband and I have been sending packages and letters for many years through these websites. There are others too. And those of you who have people going over, they can go to these sites and sign up to receive support from home. If they get plenty of support themselves, they may notice someone who gets NO mail (unfortunately way too common) and they could ask for mail for their buddies.

I hope everyone comes home safely.

Gluten Free going on 5 years and counting!

gluten-free is a life change and not a diet.
