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,

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!

    • Today was the big day when I went to the GI and this is the first time I have felt heard about and well taken care of.  I told him about the two celiac blood tests  (in my first post) normal, he said that often happens, even with people who do have celiac and he needed to see the report and pictures from my endoscope.    I had filled out the appropriate Kaiser paperwork for Sutter to send all my medical records, but they ended up sending a celiac disease to me with the records, which Sutter said they could not use.  We also talked about gluten sensitivity v. celiac, and he said a lot of people are sensitive to gluten even if they don't have celiac. He said that my symptoms sound like classic IBS, which can be caused by any number of things.  He asked if I would try the FODMAP diet, which limits certain foods and requires no gluten due to what being He said my symptoms sound like classic IBS, which he said can be caused by any number of things, including gluten sensitivity.  He has asked if I would try the FODMAP diet, which has restricted foods as well as no gluten because most gluten products have wheat in them.  So, since I am planning on going gluten free anyway, and I don't want another endoscope or blood tests if absolutely necessary, I am going to try the FODMAP diet and see what happens. I filled a consent form at the GI office today to have all my records sent to him so he can view the endoscope pathology report and photos.  I have an appointment with a Registered Dietician on September 30, and follow up appointment the GI in 4 months. 
    • gluten-free andee, according to an article on celiac.com  that talks about this subject see this link http://www.celiac.com/articles/24406/1/Celiac-Diease-and-Other-Autoimmune-Diseases-Equals-Low-Inflammatory-Diet/Page1.html Quoting the author "In the author's personal experience, a gluten-free diet has many limitations. The reactivity between alpha gliadin and corn, millet, oats, rice and dairy has been denounced as invalid by gastroenterologists and celiac disease researchers. While at a medical school in Missouri, biopsies did not show improvement in villous atropy until all alpha gliadin sources and corn, millet, rice and oats were removed from the diet."  Note this research is two years old but hilites the problem with non-gluten rice protein that you are having. It is the alpha gliadin sources that it causing the cross reactivity you are experiencing when you eat rice protein's. She says quoting "Celiac disease has gotten the most attention in antibody research, but the current data on cross-reactivity of antibodies is allowing a better understanding of gluten sensitivity. Antigen reactivity to alpha-gliadin can trigger immune attacks on many individuals beyond those with positive DQ 2, DQ 8 and TTG test results. She goes on to say "A low inflammatory diet customized to each person through testing for cross-reactivity or elimination diet protocols is needed to restore a state of health and well-being."  which sounds exactly like what you are doing. If you are still having problems after elminating rice a 30 day elimination of all the alpha gliadin proteins might be in order.  Corn is a common reactivity problem I hear with a gluten allergy from my friends as well as the obvious lactose problems that can be common among celiacs.  But rarely do you hear Rice allergy's brought up in context of a gluten allergy. I am glad you are making progress on finding your triggers. Read the whole article for yourself to see if there are nuggets of truth I did not highlight in my response. I hope this is helpful. Good luck on your journey to health. Posterboy,
    • One other thing - you might be able to tolerate some dairy if it's only the FODMAPs problem. I discovered that many cheese such as cheddar have effectively no lactose. And my wife sometimes makes 24 hour yoghurt, which also has effectively no lactose. Those have been fine for my tummy.
    • I'm new to the forum, so this topic may already have been covered....please forgive me, if that's the case.  I am in the beginning stages of guiding the development of a 504 plan to file for my 6th-grade daughter who was diagnosed with Celiac Disease 2 weeks ago. The diagnosis was made with a biopsy. My first question...A 504 is what's necessary....not just the IHCP, correct or no? I have the Physician's Statement & the Medical Evaluation report from our GI specialist. What else do I need to have at the ready? The team has requested we go ahead and write the IHCP & then include it with the 504.  And my second question...What accommodations have others found relevant to include on the IHCP  & 504? I just watched a 504-Plan webinar I found on this forum & it recommends the following: -access to gluten-free food in classroom & cafeteria - excused absence from activities that use gluten-containing foods or materials -  prevent cross-contamination in school food service - use of microwave to heat personal meals -  bathroom priveleges Is there anything I need to consider adding? My daughter does prefer eating school meals rather than packing a lunch from home & I am concerned about special events, overnight field trips etc. My learning curve is steep. What am I missing? Teach me, please & thanks so much! This forum has already helped me tremendously these past few weeks.
