Misdiagnosed celiac disease Complications

09 July 2010 - 05:20 PM

Many long-time posters on board know who I am. I don't come around as often as I used to. The last 4 years have been pretty bad for me and my husband (health wise).

Anyway, he is now still very, very thin and needs a 3rd hernia surgery. Surgeon won't do it unless he gains 10+ lbs. It's very difficult for him to gain weight. So we are stuck, not going forward and refusing to go backward. Even I am depressed now; refusing the things I used to love to do; constantly worrying about my husband and what wll end up happening.

So I haven't had much to say, maybe I'd share on board here and there - I guess for a while there I was a regular. So I'll just share this news, maybe ask for some suggestions to gain weight (foods that don't include soy, eggs, frying, spices, fruits/vegetables, and of course gluten, no tomato sauce - this should be a challenge as he really needs to gain and surgeon turned him down because he's too frail. He started with the Ensure, but it's not enough calories.

Sending Sympathy Cards

10 June 2010 - 06:27 PM

Question: Do you send a sympathy card to both cousins separately or is it OK to just send one card? Need unbiased opinion.
You live in Canada and your blood aunt/uncle passes away in United States (let's say Ohio). You grew up in Michigan, but saw your 2 cousins in Ohio often - birthday parties, major holidays, etc. They got your hand-me-downs, you went to carnivals with them, etc. You stayed overnight at their house often and they returned the favor.
Eventually you all grew up - sent one another birthday cards and Christmas cards, etc. After a while most of you dropped the birthday cards and only did Christmas cards and that was Ok too.
Anyway, your last parent passes away, and your close relatives all send their sympathy cards to your sibling at your sibling's address - but you do not live with or near your sibling. In fact, you do not get any sympathy card from that side of the family. Their cards are addressed to your sister Sharon and her husband, Robert Jones; and Michele, your wife and John Brown (yourself) but mailed to Sharon and Robert's home.
Should a sympathy card sender send one card to both of the cousins as if they all lived together or should the card sender acknowledge that these people run separate households and lives and purchase (or craft, if they are that broke) two cards: one for the greiving sister and one for the greiving brother?

My vote was since there are only two offspring of the deceased parent and they do not live together nor near one another, the card senders should have bought/made 2 cards - one for each offspring. I relied on the "Be Nice" "Treat someone like you would want to be treated" theories.

Hi Reps:

Does Avon carry a gluten-free body lotion which has a low level of fragrance which my husband can use and not smell "girly?"

Thanks - Deb
