In Topic: I'm Off To Disney World!

16 June 2007 - 02:39 PM

My 14 yo daughter and I are off to Disney World early Sunday morning. It's the first time for both of us. She won her trip, along with her cousin and 2 friends, by taking part in a science-type contest. The national finals are in DW next week. I feel a little bad leaving my other 3 kids and hubby, but I really wanted to share the experience with my DD. They are all doing fun things for the week too, so they aren't too deprived - my 15 yo DD is taking the train to Portland with a friend for the week to stay with her friend's aunt and uncle and my boys are already at the ocean with Grandma and Grandpa. My poor hubby will have to stay home and go to work and take care of the dog :P . I'll make it up to him somehow.

I'm excited about not having to cook for 6 people for 6 whole days! I like to cook, but this will be a wonderful treat for me! I'm hoping I walk off all the extra calories I know I'll be eating. I'm even thinking of splurging on gluten-free/CF Mickey Mouse pancakes!

Just wanted to say, have a wonderful time, i just returned from an 11 day Disney world vacation that was wonderful! They make the best gluten-free pancakes ever! I have never eaten so many cheeseburgers and fries in my life. And they even sell gluten-free brownies, rice crispy treats and chocolate chip cookies, i gained 10 lbs! but it was so woth it!!!!!

Have a great trip!

You can get a gluten free cake made at supposedly any resort that has its OWN bakery. The Grand Floridian is one,I think the Polynesian is also.. the bigger places have their own, they will make the cake and deliver it to where you want.. that is what one of the chefs inside Disney World told me.. I hope that helps!!!! enjoy your trip!!!

Thank you! we will be at the wilderness lodge so either one of those places will work out great!

Thanks for all the replies! I am having my surgery as an outpatient, so no worries about hospital food only my husbands cooking! The percocet I took before when I had my gallbladder out and the only reaction i had was it made me very itchy so i had to chase it with benadryl. Which i am not sure, is Benadryl Gluten free? The sedation and anesthesia should be fine, as it was pointed out that that goes into my blood stream and I am not ingesting them. I am still working on finding out about this antibiotic, Keflex. I have researched it and found all the different generic forms but can't find if any are Gluten free. I will call a pharmacist this week and hopefully find out. My procedure is being done at a surgical center so no hospital will be involved and my Doc has pretty much left everything up to me in finding out if i can take the meds he is prescribing.

i've never heard of gluten in a IV anyway and I've never heard of that kind of pump, when I had cosmetic surgery mine was self-admisistering pump so i don't know about that, when exactly is your surgery, you should talk to the doctor before and ask about all the meds they will use, then ask for the brands and the phone numbers for the companies and call them if you have time beofre the surgery.

This type of pump is something new that goes right to the area of surgery and I guess just kind of numbs it. My surgery is the middle of March and as far as the other meds it's this antibiotic Keflex i need to get info on.

anesthesia is fine, I have been through many surgeries and pain pumps for me have usually been morphine and they are self-administering where you punch the button when you want the meds and only when you want the meds.
IV meds are almost always free of gluten and they are directly into the blood stream so they don't go into your intestine and I have always been fine with IV meds before

Thanks for the reply, I didn't think about it not going into the intestines therefore not an issue, Thanks! Unfortunatly mine is not a self medicating pump, the way I understand it it works similar to a drain, and i will only have it for a few days. Thanks again for the info, very helpful and reasurring!
