Hot Enough For You?
0

116 posts in this topic

There is even a shortage of HAY here in South Dakota. A lot of ranchers are selling their herds because there is nothing to feed them.

Speaking of cattle, have you ever noticed how the young calves run and bounce around with their tails straight out, and they seem so happy? That's because they are born in the spring when the weather is nice. Then comes summer and this unbearable heat, not to mention the hailstorms. And of course in winter there is the terrible snow with winds so strong it blows the snow up their noses and often they suffocate.

That is why grown cattle no longer scamper around. They just stand there like, well like cows, thinking, "This is NOT what was promised!"

Supposed to get up to 110 for the next couple of days here. We don't have the humidity some of you folks get, but at 110, even dry is uncomfortable.

No, it's North Dakota that has that rule - South can have whatever it wants to. Besides, the rules have all changed :P

Well change them back!! :lol:

Actually, during the (last) drought years I remember a day in 2007 when it got up to 116! That was the year when my precious little town almost burned to the ground. :(

Flat out sweating, Shroom. We lost power for a while and the house got hot. Thankfully it's back on now and cooling down :)

Was just thinking how growing up we didn't have air conditioning and did just fine.....

OK, if they can change the rules on how hot it gets, they can change the rules about "glowing". So in a spirit of fairness, I now pronounce it legal for all of us ladies to sweat our tails off!!

Same here, Patti. Growing up in Boston.

No AC. Never heard of it.

We were lucky to have fans. :lol: which only "pushed" the hot air around.

Rode the subway at an early age and went to the beach to "cool off". Or ...the firemen opened the hydrants.

"hot town, summer in the city......."

I know that you know that song.

Big fat storms rolled through here, dumped buckets in one hour, rolled out and left it cooler. Whew! Our landscaping on the house was finally getting done and I was WORRIED about those guys!

I live around Chattanooga, TN and although recently we have finally been getting consistent rain, it is still mid nineties and humid! To me it is worse to breathe that steamy air than dry air. Suffocation! Ahhh!

Good news is, the onion grass in the back yard is already boiled and ready to eat ;)

Just got a down poor . . . not near enough to solve our drought issues . . . but you should have seen us all run to the windows like we've never seen rain before.

What IS this wet stuff falling from the sky?

ah, but we are not old, P---we're "prime". ;)

(truth be told, I still do not like a/c much)

The windows are wide open today.

After being oppressive for 3 days, it is actually nice today--82 degrees and perfect.

The grass, however, is nearly hopeless.

Now that sounds nice! Hoping to be able to open ours if this humidity lifts.

How hot is it? Hot enough that we are under "pre-evacuation notice". There is a huge fire six miles north of town and the wind is blowing south. We haven't been told to leave yet but they have told us to be packed and ready to go at a moment's notice. Got to go home and grab the cat and a few guitars and my "go bag". Then I'm coming back here to the shop where my computer is so I can keep up with the latest news. If you don't hear from me for a while it's because I had to leave.

We have the greatest firefighters and police so please don't worry about me. I know they will get us out of here before there is any danger. I guess I should take some food too because I won't be able to eat whatever they offer us at the college south of here, which is where they will probably tell us to go. But somehow that is the least of my worries right now.

Life is never boring when you live in the west I guess...

Wow . . . take care, Bartfull. Hope the fire is put out ASAP.

Makes me have to think about what I would take. It wouldn't hurt to actually have that kind of plan . . . you don't usually get a whole lot of time to think about it.

Pack well Barty!

My favorite neighbor,age 8, came over with her little fluffy dog. (Hub made a gate in the back fence). Our dogs were playing and we were hiding from the skeeters on my screened porch. We were remarking that it was odd that 90 felt nice.

    • 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".
