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! I only wish I could have made it. :(

I did not mean to post this twice. OOPS!

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.

Will continue to say prayers. I think Re-peep is pretty miraculous!

Love,

Loey

Want to hear something funy? Come hear me attempt to preach to day! LOL I better at least go take a shower first. :)

I would have been there in a minute if I still lived in Plainsboro. You've all been in my thoughts and prayers. Would love to see your sermon if you want to IM or email me. Kristi and Timothy must be so proud of you and so are all us of psillies!!!!!!!!!!

Hugs,

Loey

I was thinking that, too!

I need some serious help! I can't stop eating peanut brittle! smiley-animal0025.gif

I can't stop eating period! Superman says if it's not nailed down it finds it's way into my stomach. At least it's gluten-free and Celiac is back on track. Enjoy that peanut brittle, dear friend!

Love,

Loey

Sorry about the cikvebs Jestgar.

OK, since Jest brought up resurrections stories, got to throw a couple real ones in. Too late for Vinchants sermon though, sorry.

Ok, so many years ago, on a ground far away, I had cabin on a rise in a ravine between two steep hills. Wild white trilliums bloomed in the yard in the spring. I may have seen a Rocky Mountain Combine once too. And some May apples liked the quiet of the dark woods as well. There was a little rocky stream that flowed past the cabin on the left side. Large rock cliffs lined the stream and grape vines hung from the walnut trees in the woods. Place was called Bear Wallow Hollow. But man moved in and drilled a well.

One day I left the cabin via the front door to check on the well drilling. I stepped down and felt a squish just as I saw a huge brown caterpillar under my descending right boot. This guy was five inches long or more and as big around as a super-sized Cuban cigar. I didn't smash his head but his body was kind of paper-thin. A big squish of green goo came out his back end on the step. I figured he was a goner for sure.

The feller drilling the well was done and got in his truck to leave. He backed up and stopped his rear wheel on a little furry kitten that as all of 6 inches long. I yelled at him to stop and he did, right on top the kitten. There was just a little head and two tiny front legs sticking out out from under the rear tire. He pulled forward and stopped. The kitten was particularly flat. We both stared at it for a little bit and figured it was a goner. But danged if it didn't get up and start wobbling around the grass. Falling over several times but walking. After a few minutes it acted like nothing had happened!

When I got back to the cabin the caterpillar was gone. It had crawled off the step and made a hasty retreat. I don't know how it survived a 200 lb man's boot stepping on it and squishing out it's innards but it did. I figure it was mostly half digested leaves and such that came out.

Well, that's all I got.

Wolfie, get better soon. Take it easy on your stiches!

Jestgur, can find away to stretch your back, maybe hanging from a door frame or something? If you hang from a door frame and wiggle a bit gravity will help stretch out the discs in your back and that can help things get back in alignment.

Looey, good to hear you are doing better and back gluten-free. Have a great time at your outing! :)

and Happy New Year to everyone! :D

Great story, Gee Eff--glad those critters had a happy ending :D

Had a mole removed once but they cauterized it--no stitches. Had 3 ugly looking "moles" on me forehead that were actually some other harmless (but ugly) growth--the derm froze those off :unsure: . Good to get those things taken care of ;)

Well, Happy New Year all :) We are going to friends' house later to ring in the new year--bringing my homemade cheesecake w/pecan shortbread crust and chocolate ganach topping. B)

LOVED the squished kitten and catterpillar tales, Geee-Eff...! The will to live, the will to live..... :) .. . . .

Jestgur, can find away to stretch your back, maybe hanging from a door frame or something? If you hang from a door frame and wiggle a bit gravity will help stretch out the discs in your back and that can help things get back in alignment.

This, whilst being excellent advice, somehow strikes me at the same time as being SOOO funny..... :lol: Just picturing Jyesss vaulting up, hooking her legs around the top of a door frame, gracefully hanging downward...... :lol:

...Something I may try this evening......"tis New Years eve, after all......

The wanna be librarian in me says Mexican with a cross reference to pasta.

Make sure Will gets a pic!! :D

The hanging in the doorway reminds me of an old Andy Griffith show where Barney was deemed too short for his job (new rules) so they tried stretching him by putting his head in a harness and hanging him in a doorway. Hee!

Novel therapy seen this summer: hubs in harness (no, psillies, this is not something kinky :P ) with the physical therapist hanging on the straps trying to rein him in. Like a draught horse pulling a (small) cart loaded with rocks. Now he's in massage therapy for his neck and shoulders :lol:

M decided it should be in pasta with other lasagnas. I thought about making copies and putting recipes in more than one place but ......too much work. I got some cute binders and the only recipes in these will be the ones I know we like. A pocket page in each section for recipes I want to try but haven't earned the right to be in the book.

I had a friend that defrosted a kitten. A feral cat had 2 kittens somehow on top of the wood pile - in a window box over it or something. the kittens fell down into the wood pile and got stuck. My friend came home and realized something had happened. She dug them out and one was frozen & dead. She brought them in and warmed them up and the dead one came back to life. She was always a bit uncoordinated and odd but a nice house cat.

Ok, when you put it in that context it makes perfect sense. :rolleyes:

    • Previous studies have indicated an increase in celiac disease rates in the United States, but these studies have been done on narrow populations, and did not produce results that are nationally representative. View the full article
    • No worries!!! 

      Yes I've been completely gluten free for over a year now, except when I get glutened from restaurants etc. My 'traces symptoms' have always been major bloating and lots of bathroom breaks but now during my gluten challenge so far I've had some super crazy symptoms... varying from loose stools to severe constipation, bloating 24/7, shortness of breath, rash, joint pains, mood swings, brain fog, headaches and some sharp pains similar to brain freeze but worse... the list goes on, but I'm determined to have a definite result! 
    • Ennis_TX - Your post rings true with me. I was only diagnosed in May, but from May through.... basically two weeks ago, I was out of my mind. I completely understand when you describe it. I had zero self control. I retired from the Army after 21 years and had always had pride in myself that I could handle just about anything thrown my way. That was until this disease. I found myself sobbing uncontrollably, not getting out of bed till late afternoon, hiding in the bedroom from my own family, missing work, not being able to make simple decisions, I was getting at most, 3 hours of sleep a night. I would sit up in bed and literally scream out loud in frustration. I asked my wife several times to bring me to the VA Psyc. ward (which she talked me out of). I had no pleasure or happiness in my life even though I have a very supportive wife of 32 years, and two ideal kids with three grandkids. I had NO reason to feel the way I did, but yet, there I was. And like you mentioned, I too had a "Bucket List" per say.  To top it all off, I had this horrible muscle pain in my legs and arms. Joints a little, but the muscles were in constant pain. One month ago they diagnosed me with Fibromyalgia. At this point I am not willing to accept that diagnosis.  They started me on Gabapentin and these last two weeks I have actually started feeling less pain in the muscles and my mind is bouncing back too. Although the muscle pain came back a bit Sunday, and has me a little concerned. I keep telling myself it has only been 4 months gluten-free, and that it will take time. But I have to admit, I do not have much patience and I want to start feeling better now.   I ran into an old Army friend a few weeks back, and he had been diagnosed in 2009. He told me everything he went through and other than diarrhea and an inflamed throat, his biggest symptoms were depression/anxiety and brain fog. He said his wife was so worried she sold all of his guns. He would sometimes find himself in the backyard just curled up in the grass wondering when it would end for him. Absolute craziness. When I shared the issues I was having he could relate 100%. He said he hasn't met anyone else that went through the same things as him and it was therapeutic for us both. He told me of some places that were Celiac friendly, and we agreed to let each other know when something new hits the market, or any other good news via text. Back in May I searched for a celiac support group near by, but no luck. I stumbled on this forum and it has helped me tremendously. Stories like yours helped to insure me I was not losing my mind. Which, I might add, I told many VA & civilian Psychiatrists that indeed I was. Thanks for your post, and I hope nothing but the best for you, here forward. Dharwood
    • It is enough for the endoscopy, but not for the blood panel.  It could be worth trying for the blood test, but there is a greater chance of it being negative.  I assume you have been gluten-free for a while.  I admire that you were able to do the gluten challenge!  (I guess I should have pulled up your previous posts, but I was busy getting my kid to school.)
    • The doctor suspected celiac specifically, and he said 3-4 weeks would be enough... I understand that there are multiple recommendations varying from 3 weeks to 3 months but from what I've read I think 4 weeks will most probably not be enough for a positive result in the case that I am celiac.
