That is SO great, Loweeeee....Crap, dancin' all night is challenging cardio..... . ...unless you is slow dancin'... ;)

ThanksEm! There were two slow dances with Superman (the first time since we were married 23 years ago - Rob HATES dancing) & the rest of the night I danced (yes, very challenging cardio) with the bride & groom's biker buddies. The women were a hoot! The groom (Rob's cousin) was in a very serious motorcycle accident 2 months ago so it was a wonderful celebration of his marriage (they were married in the ICU) & the fact that he survived & could also dance!

Thats great loey!!!! I am feeling a bit of pain today too LOL

Get out the icepack my friend! I plan on doing that as soon as we get home! Then I have a great book to read! :-) my iPad is charging so I might not be able to read in the car!

We went for a fall colour scenic drive today. It was a large counter-clockwise loop through southern and central Ontario, into the Kawartha Lakes, Haliburton Highlands, almost to Algonquin Park, and then back home through the southern part of Muskoka. Six+ hours and over 400 kilometers, most of it with beautiful, vivid views. Traffic coming back south was heavy out of cottage country on Sunday, but we needed to seize the moment as it will rain tomorrow.

 

A very enjoyable day.

Very nice, POeter.....What a great way to spend a day with your sweetheart. I LOVE the Haliburton Highlands -- Will's aunt had a tiny island in Lake Joseph with a little cottage perched on it, and we used to stay there over a weekend. Just beautiful.

The coloUrs 'round here are just starting to change -- you say they're in full force in S Ontario? Hmmm...youse guys get EVERYTHING first...  <_<   :rolleyes:

No pictures this time out. We are not seeing peak colours quite yet. Another expedition to the NW rather than NE may be indicated.

On my way home now. Ouchy sums up the exam! Part of my problem is my IC. She's going to deal with that first. I have to have 6 weeks of installations of lidocaine & prednisone - double ouchy! I also need PT for pelvic floor disorder. She feels that she can help me but it will take time because IC is just one of the problems. I feel quite blessed - I've had far worse medical issues so this will be a (painful) walk n the park. Good thing I danced Saturday night because I won't be moving around today! The doctor was great & now that the initial appointment is over I'll be able to get in to see her as soon I as call. It's a 45 minute drive each way but she's rated highly, has a terrific bedside manner & well worth the trip! As always I can't imagine life without my dear Psillies! Thank you for always being there for me!!

 I went to a wedding last night & was able to dance all night long! A far cry from my falling & writing incoherent posts. My back isn't too happy today, but my chiropractor can fix that.

Yay you!

 

I can't sit comfortably on most chairs or any stools, and can't stand for any length of time....all because of my back. But I can dance forever. I feel no pain when I dance. It's awesome!

Nah. It's just one of those things that has gotten progressively worse. What I know is that I have osteoarthritis in my lower back (creates problems if I stand still too long,), 2 bulging disks and a herniated disk in my neck (shouldn't look down to help student, draw, computer), osteopenia, and I have lost 3/4 inch in height. My biggest issue right now is the middle of my back (the sitting problems. No high back chairs, booths, stools, or long car rides)and I have not yet had an MRI on that to find out what exactly is going on. It'll cost around  $900 to get that done. Luckily, the school chairs are great for the way I need to sit....they have low backs. And Brian bought his current motorcycle specifically with my comfort in mind.

Well hi y'all!  After trying to resurect my dying desktop, I've decided it is terminal and switched to the laptop.  This, of course means that I have none of my passwords.....

 

Finally got around to resetting this one, so, hi!   Missed y'all!

Drive by. Don't know if this was already posted or not.  A song about cookies and them not being gluten-free.

 

 

And, possible issues with wif-fi and plants:

    • 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.
