Well psills, once more back into the fray after a five-day hospital detour for fluid on (and in) the lungs :huh::unsure::wacko: No diagnosis, so we'll see what eventuates. That stuphph gets awfully boring after a while. So here's your funny for today:

TODAY'S ENGLISH LESSON

No dictionary has been able to explain adequately the difference between COMPLETE and FINISHED. However, at a recent linguistics conference held in London, England, and attended by some of the best linguists in the world, Samsundar Balgobin, a Guyanese, was the clear winner.

His final challenge was this: Some say there is no difference between COMPLETE and FINISHED. Please explain the difference in a way that is easy to understand.

Here is his astute answer: "When you marry the right woman, you are COMPLETE, but when you marry the wrong woman, you are FINISHED. And when the right one catches you with the wrong one, you are COMPLETELY FINISHED"

His answer was given a standing ovation and it entitled him to receive an invitation to dine with the Queen.

So shadowicewolf can say that when her finals (exams and papers) are COMPLETE, she is FINISHED with the semester (but not completely finished.

Expiditiously - it always sounds like you are setting out on a great journey, but in reality you are just supposed to be moving your butt!!!! :lol:

Thanks for your thoughts and wellness wishes. Seems like this may be an ongoing problem, unfortunately :(

HaHa, haha, some of the hospital staff are glad I'm gone, I think :P I seem to have been on a grammatical kick lately, and it was driving me INSANE, the po-lite-ness with which I was being treated. Would you mind if I examined your back? :blink: Would it be all right if I lifted up your shirt? :rolleyes: Is it all right if I .... come around this side of the bed... remove your drip line.... etc., etc. Mind you, in some ways it was refreshing, but enough is enough.

So, instead of "Let me see your ID bracelet", I would get "Can you tell me your name and date of birth?" Eventually, (they had obviously been trained this way because they all did it) I just replied "Yes." An intervening expectant pause...... "Well?" Me: "I answered your question." Puzzled look :wacko: Then me: "Oh, you actually wanted me to do it. In that case you should ask 'will you please?' rather than 'Can you?' " Puzzled look of chagrin!! I almost got them trained, by explaining that when they said 'can' I wasn't sure if they were inferring mental incompetence or physical incapacity :P:rolleyes:

Shroom ~ The only thing that I know of that has a food reaction and fluid on the lungs is, Lysinuric Protein Intolerance (LPI).

I noticed there was a little dark dot on KC.

We went to San Diego once for Thanksgiving a few years ago. It was quite cool. Didn't stop my boys ( hub included) from building skate parks/ mountain bike trails on the beach. We don't do sand castles!

Your men fit well here....we never made sand castles -- only huge pits at the top of high tide line which auto fill into pool for a bit then destroy the days work -- only had a few tears when they were little - grown now and they still dig even larger pits with their friends :)

PS...January, June and November are the toughest bet for picture perfect weather. Late Sept/Early October best bet.

We escaped Sannazay one early December because it was freezing there -- early 70's, permafrost on the ground -- and hung out in SD; brilliant ideah !!! Then we had to return to the reality of making Christmas in Sonoma for MIL... :wub::rolleyes:

    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:  
    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
