In Topic: Any Trouble With Endoscopy?

22 October 2004 - 05:36 AM

My daughter Age 4 had no problem with the biopsy.....I too had a biopsy and it wasn't tramatic. The more stress you show your young one - the more they will have - we treated it as something that had to be done - lets do it.....my daughter also had one done at age 3. age 3 showed nothing, but age 4 yes....slight damage but it was there. The team in the hospital should tell You the stages of them Waking up, combative is normal, rubbing the nose is normal.

Good Luck

In Topic: How Do You "break It" To An Older Child?

28 September 2004 - 10:42 AM

Hi - I didnt have to "break it" to my kids, they are told Everything - every step of the way. You can only shelter them so much.....she had no right telling you how you should Talk to your kids - Everyone is different.....and it is your kids body. The kids need to know. my 4 year old is very ok with it. We deal with it, we are constantly getting educated so it isn't a big deal. Yes it is overwhelming at first, but Everything new is.

I had to tell my kids that their dad passed away, should I have "sugar coated" that? I had a friend who wouldnt let her teenage daughter Attend funeral services (even though the teen wanted to) - both my kids were there. it is life. let's live it.

In Topic: One Day A Week Gluten?

21 September 2004 - 09:22 AM

NO Cheating please........I lost my husband to this terrible disease.....I make my kids pizza at home - buy the gluten-free pizza dough at whole foods, roll it out put sauce and cheese on it...bake done....it is even easier than driving out to pick up pizza.

One cheat leads to another cheat. and now is the time to stress to your kids the importance of staying gluten-free means Staying healthy in the gut. just b/c you can see the harm or have symptoms doesnt mean it isnt happening.

In Topic: Anyone Not Super Careful About Cross Contamination

11 August 2004 - 09:47 AM

I am very careful. we use a lot of paper plates. My kids do not use the toaster oven anymore.....if they do they use foil in it.... they like to heat stuff up in the Microwave on a plate....

my 11 year old is very obsessive about being careful. He Washes his hands constantly and doesnt like gluten foods near him......but he saw what happened to his Dad....so he is entitled.

Please be Careful!!!

Hi Ronna
You have come to The Right place. Everyone is so helpful here and so knowledgeable. Glad you got the Computer. It makes finding out about Celiac so much easier - I dont know What people did before the PC.....

being gluten-free does get easier - there are lots of "regular" products That are gluten free. Stick to the basics, meat, chicken, fish, rice, potatoes And veggies and Fruits and develop your list of other things that you can eat.....
Good Luck
