In Topic: Any Ideas?

Hi Michelle,
We chatted a few times last year our daughters were diagnosed about the same time and are the same age. I am struggling with the same problem with Amy as well. Her tummy has even started to swell. We too are awaiting blood test results.
One thing we found out was she was coming into contact with play doh at school. Our dr also said that one gluen accident can produce symptoms that last 2 to 4 weeks (the physical appearance that is). Good luck. I hope that she is going to bounce back quickly.

Wow, I have been away from the board for a few days and I just checked in. RaeAnn thanks for all the recipes. I can't wait to try them. I am just going to start dinner. Hope you are all having a good week. Will update later about my week.

Hello Michelle and RaeAnn,
I have been away for the weekend and just got to checking the board. Looks like Amy may have gotten some gluten or maybe a flu bug she had diarrhea and nausea all day Saturday. I can't figure out where it could have come from though. The good news is that it only lasted the day.
As far as my biopsy goes I am meeting with my family doctor on Wednesday to get a referal to a GI so I can then have the biopsy. I have been feeling awful since I started eating gluten again. I have opted to keep it to a minimum. Michelle I think that the reaction is because I do in fact have celiac disease as my blood tests is positive and Amy has it I believe that its pretty much inevitable.
RaeAnn, I am finding that I am at a loss for quick and easy meals. I hope it gets a little easier. Do either of you happen to have a good vanilla cake recipe? I am looking to make something for this weekend for Mother's day that everyone will enjoy?
Have a great day.

Thanks RaeAnn and Michelle for your responses. It has been 2 weeks yesterday that my daughter has been gluten-free. I started the same time however with an upcoming biopsy I have had to re-introduce gluten to my diet. I have become very sick. I am so shocked that I am feeling so crappy because I never noticed it before. I am also finding that I never seem to leave the kitchen. I have to admit that I was pretty much a "prepared" purchaser in that everything I bought was all ready to go. Now I am left to do that myself so I spend all morning and most of each afternoon making things. I have done bread, pancakes, cookies, a banana chocolate cake (yum), muffins and this afternoon I am tackling pizza dough. I need a hobby (lol). Anyways, I'd love to hear how you handle all the time this way of life seems to take.

Hi RaeAnn,
Its been difficult to say the least. However we are getting by. My daughter's biopsy came back positive and I just received a call saying my blood test is positive. I am still awaiting the results of my younger daughter's blood test. I am guessing that it won't matter as we are already eating gluten free. It seem to be the easiest way to keep my daughter eating.
How old is your daughter? How soon did you notice a difference in her? I am so anxious to see her belly disappear.
Thanks for the reply. Take care.
