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:

    • Karen, the iodine test was a test for DH used in the 'olden' days. Iodine would be swabbed onto a spot and then it would be covered with a bandage. If someone had DH the iodined area would break out in lesions. I don't know how but we do know iodine can activate the antibodies. That is why some of us with DH have to avoid iodine in foods until the antibodies have cleared the dermis. OP, if you haven't been tested for celiac you should be and if you have active lesions a biopsy done next to a lesion by a DH knowledgable dermatologist may help in diagnosis.
    • The gluten-free diet (GFD) is the only validated treatment for celiac disease (celiac disease), but despite strict adherence, complete mucosal recovery is rarely ... View the full article
    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
