So, yesterday I decided it was just time! (Thanks so the encouragement here!) And so I went to the store and starting from dinner on my 4 year old (and me!) have been gluten-free. She has been SOOOO sick lately...I mean, I have been seriously worried about her (aside from her being a mess digestively and having inflammation on a recent scope), she also has had no stamina, has not wanted to do anything, has been falling asleep at the drop of hat, so grouchy, huge meltdowns over tiny things, etc.
Welp, here we are 24 hours later and she will. not. shut. up. Honestly, she cannot stop talking! She is going on and on and on like I have never seen her do in her entire life! It is like the life is back in her -- she's walking around talking and talking and hubby gets home and she's talking and talking. It is hilarious! But, this is the first day in a week she didn't fall asleep on the couch right before dinner!
It has to be a coincidence, right!? This can't be the no gluten, right?
We went for an x-ray today so we'll know tomorrow if she's backed up -- but even if she is, she's sure in a better mood! Thank goodness!
My son started feeling better within 24 hours. The change over the first few days was unbelievable. Here we are 10 weeks later and he has gained 15 pounds and is a totally different 14 year old. Thank God we found out what the problem was. Celiacs Disease is easy to manage once you are aware that he or she has it.
