Zowie. Hurt my back cleaning out the coop. Fortunately most things are doable, but finishing up the potty process is ....... challenging.

Weird frickin' morning.

Went out to check on the chickens and found the three chicks outside the nest, cold and dead. Brought them inside wrapped up in my shirt against my stomach, because, you know, they're chickens. Reptilian-esque. Put the heated barley bag underneath them and started searching the chicken forum. Others have revived chicks that have been dead for a couple days, so I figured I'd give it a shot. One person suggested putting them back under the broody. OK, works for me.

Put the three little bodies under mom (I'm not very hopeful, actually, but it's worth a shot). Figured I'd take out the two eggs that didn't hatch, because 3 days overdue is a long time. Brought the eggs inside to candle them to see if they were even ever fertile and one PEEPED at me!.

So now the broody is sitting on three dead chicks, and two "dud" eggs.

And I dunno about you, but when there are lives at stake, I'm pretty oblivious of my body -- so now my back really hurts.

Think I'll re-microwave the barley bag and stretch out in the recliner.

Oh Jess, I'm sorry about the chicks and yes, when something like that is happening you kind of act on instinct and your physical feelings take a back seat to the emotional ones.

I am sending warm, positive thoughts that the wee ones will somehow pull through. Keep us posted and take care of that back;)

Sorry about the chickies. Sorry about your back, too. Sounds like everyone should have just stayed in their snug beds where they belong.

I know people who have brought back frozen kittens, so it could work for chicks?

Yeah!

Well, no miracle chickie resurection, but Re-peep hatched and seems fine. I'll listen to the last egg today, and if it's not peeping, out it goes. That way Dovey can get up and follow the kid around if she decides to leave the nest.

So sorry about the chicks. Remember to ice after using the heated barley bag. I relied on heat (comfort) when my back went out after the hospital. Between the chiropractor and icing it I'm actually going to be able to pick Tony up at JFK with Superman. Was also given the green light on intimacy. :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Love,

Loey

Poodle talks are still in discussion. It's the only pet I'm not allergic to (not counting the wonderful turtles, snakes, etc we had when Tony was growing up). Rob thinks it will be therapeutic in many ways. Our friend has been brining her poodle Tassie to visit. I'm in love. :wub: Tassie has a sister that is not a poodle and they are very close so my allergies kick up a little after being with her. It's going to be put on hold until the weather is warmer and we see what's happening for Rob job wise (another mouth to feed & vet bills to consider). He's still the top candidate for the job in Mass. but neither of us want to move. We've developed some close friendships in our development (not to mention finally having the right doctors who aren't trying to solve everything with medication). I'm 1000% better and rarely even think about reaching for a pain med or any other. As my system detoxes I'm able to see what meds I need to re-add in (for example I was taking hormone replacement and stopped and the hot flashes came back with a vengeance- it's also good for my bones). Instead of taking (no exaggeration) 20-25 pills twice a day I' down to 4 once a day as well as homeopathic remedies. I feel better than I have in years. I'm still trying to tackle sleeping but I'm going to wait until the trip to NJ to deal with it. I don't want to be wide awake in a hotel and then too tired to enjoy the party. A reminder to all of you that are sorta close to Princeton (or don't mind a ride) I'm having the joint birthday party for the boys on January 19th at 1PM at Romeo's on Schalks Crossing in Plainsboro NJ. It's between Route 1 and Route 130 right outside of Princeton and Cranbury. It's going to be a buffet so I have them setting up a gluten-free table away from the regular buffet. I'm going to put up some signs asking people to PLEASE not cross contaminate our area. They have gluten-free pizza and pastas. I would love to meet my psillies in person. Patti, I'm crossing everything that Mark will be able to bring you.

OK, laundry calls. In case I'm not online again this year (we decided to go to the NYE party and I already made my ambrosia) I wish all of you the HEALTHIEST and HAPPIEST of New Year's. I have a great feeling about 2013 (13 has always been a lucky number for me).

I know I've said it before but it's sincere and straight from the heart. I don't know what I did before I met all of you wonderful psillies (and those not into our thread).This forum has truly been a lifeline for me and I feel so blessed to have you all in my life.

All my Love, :wub: :wub: :wub:

A thankful Loey

P.S. didn't take as long as I thought to get the Celiac back under control. I see my G.I. tomorrow at 7:30 AM :blink:

Still crossing everything that you and Mark will make it to the party. I'll be the one who's overdressed. It's a casual party but I am the hostess. :D :D

Love you!

Loey

P.S. I'm disappointed that Vince is in Cranbury (next to Plainsboro) this weekend and can't make the party. If I still lived in Plainsboro I'd be in the congregation beaming at our very multi-talented fella!

    • 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.
