In Topic: Celiac & Non Celiac Kids... How To Keep Things Fair?

08 December 2012 - 07:37 AM

Good question. I have two daughters 20 months apart, older one is not celiac the younger one is. Our home is completely gluten free so everyone eats the same thing. If we go out to eat (rare!) the girls both have the same gluten free meal. At family dinners the meal is all gluten-free (I have a wonderul mother in law!) So everyone there eats the same meals. I agree that you need to teach them how to cope in the world because not everyplace is accomodating. However at school and birthday parties my daughter is always different and brings her own things. Within our family I want her to feel included and safe.

In Topic: Did Your Ped Gi Recommend Endoscopy And Colonoscopy?

My daughter only had the endosopy. No mention of a colonoscopy. Prep for a colonoscopy is not fun! I would just to the endoscopy at this point.

I don't think it is school causing stress or her not wanting to go. She is happy at school and always goes to school without issues. I am wondering about other intolerances but don't even know where to start for that.

In Topic: Nervous About Endoscopy On My Daughter...looking For Support

03 March 2012 - 05:11 PM

My daughter was 4. We told her she was going for a tummy test so they could look for owies with their camera. We told her she would go to sleep. She had the IV put in and then was given the sedation drugs intravenously. I was with her in the OR while she got the IV and when they gave her the meds. She went to sleep VERY quickly. Watching that was the hardest part. Her eyes rolled around and kind of backwards and she put her hands up a few times but they put them back down for her. It was literally like 6 seconds. I started crying, knew she was out and I left. She was in the OR only about 15-20 minutes. Not long at all. Like the others said she was a bit tired after and had a sore throat later that evening but that's it. Good luck!
