So i discovered a way to remove dark spots from my stainless steel silverware. I thought i could no longer use it due to it, and when my last spot free spoon became spotted, I decided to look it up. Apparently, if you make a paste with water and baking soda it removes them.

 

After a good hand washing, they (aka test spoon) look as good as new.

Hmmmm....

 

Patteigh is leaking (not my fault......anybody had a phlipover?)

Bughnee is bangin' Yeti

Emmm is a disappointed phlasher 

 

I'm still suffering the side effects of pneumonia. Better, but still tired. Gotta get a new chest x-ray in a couple of weeks.

 

And now the good news....

 

 

HAROLD IS GONE!!!!!!!!! :D

 

 

Let me explain.....( and I will start from the beginning for all the newer psillies).....I'll try to keep it as brief as possible

 

Four years ago this month my son came down with leukemia. It was soon realized that he also had a growth at his brain stem of unknown origin that was in danger of bursting.

 

I flew down to Houston to be with him and my husband rode his motorcycle down. <_< (I told him not to....I had a bad feeling)

 

(Now, I must add this part to give you the full effect of this life-changing event in our lives)......When he arrived in Houston, he was in an accident and lost his right leg below the knee. :o  I left my sons hospital to be with my husband at his hospital, returning a couple days later to find my son in a coma, which lasted 18 days. We almost lost my son during that time. :(

 

The doctors couldn't test the growth for fear of killing him so they couldn't find out what caused it. :unsure: They bombarded him with antibiotics, and either that or the chemo slowly shrunk the growth.....named Harold. :rolleyes:  It has still been around as a small, insignificant lesion since then. But now it is entirely gone. B)

 

My son went into remission near the end of that same year, but his numbers still have not been completely normal.

 

Well....his platelets are still a little low, but his white blood cell count is normal for the first time. ^_^

 

 

And then there's Harold..........farewell :)

    • I figured I would update those who were wondering.  I have gotten the appt. so far moved up to August 30. I am waiting to have gene testing done via swab for all 3 of my kiddos tomorrow. My daughters celiac antibodies came up negative but her IgA is low which the ped said could cause false negative antibodies for celiac so she will need to see a GI dr. also. The pediatrician is going to call the GI to try to get them in sooner. I am keeping them all on a gluten diet until the GI dr. decides what to do. I am on the cancellation list already for my son, however I am not going to be persistent with my phone calls to them until I have the results of the gene test. I really want that result in my hand before going to the GI dr if I can. Maybe if he is positive, along with his bloodwork and my history they can forgo the endoscopy. But he will eat gluten till then.  My husband and I have been very honest and upfront with him as to what is going on and the possibility of the endoscopy and what that entails and although scared in general he seems ok after assuring him that since I have it he has me to help him every step of the way.  Going through his current diet with him I realized that he is truly on such a low gluten diet that I am actually surprised his bloodwork shows antibodies at all!  So I told him to make a list of allllll the gluten he could possibly think of eating and he needs to pound it until the GI visit or endoscopy. Funny thing is everything he keeps thinking of to want to eat...is already gluten free!  The other night we were at a friends and he asked if he could be done with his hotdog. I made him finish just the bread 😂 Thanks for your help and advise and I will keep y'all posted on both kids!  My oldest is a ok as far as all his antibodies. Just actually had a follow up for other immune issues and all his levels are now normal!
    • I like your plan Cara, I may have to include it in my sons.    Poor little guy is still very very sick. I think he is resisting and cheating, despite having the support of two other siblings and a 100% gluten-free home. 
    • Despite it being a nightmare, I did wait for my kids to get biopsies. At one point I had one severely ill child gluten-free and two more waiting having to eat it. It was worth the wait though and I think long term a biopsy may be worthwhile, especially for school. I have already had issues with schools and camps so having a firm diagnosis has been helpful. 
    • Knowing that the reaction to gluten in celiacs is an uncalled for immune system reaction, I was thinking of how a cure would be possible. Maybe a medicine that somehow turns off the immune system. The only thing that i've heard do that... HIV.  obviously that's way worse than celiac. Just some food for thought.
    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.
