A Gluten Update

Recommended Posts

Hi everone! My mom is doing very well and we expect her home tomorrow! On the topic of gluten......I made the cakes! I actually made them into little mini cupcakes, made buttercream frosting and topped each with a cherry. I did add the cherry yogurt, which was a nice touch!

Anyway, we did have a house of girls and their mothers, and they ate the cupcakes like crazy. They were surprised when I told them they were wheat free!!!! I also took one to my mom in the hospital. We all know how bad hospital food is! :( And she really loved them. When I told her they were gluten free she actually said, "Well if you can make stuff like this to eat, your going to do just fine." :D

Needless to say, I was very happy! I'm thinking my mom was so grouchy the other day because she was not feeling well, and not telling us. But I do have hope, hope that she will be supportive after all. I have found it quite challenging to be gluten-free at the hospital, since all the vending machines are full of junk!!!!! But, I have done it so far!

Well, I only have a little while before evening visiting hours start and I head back to the hospital, but I wanted to take the time to tell all of you that I really do take your advice and I have found it extremely helpful!!! :D

Thanks-

Lollie

Mothers are like that - always keeping you guessing. Sounds like she's doing better. I hope she's in a good hospital. My mother keeps offering me food from her pantry - forgetting that after 9 years I still can't eat what she keeps in stock. Oh well. I guess they just can't see us as any different from before celiac disease.

I am so thrilled to hear all the great news Lollie!!! I have been wondering how your mom was doing since last night.

And I'm so happy to hear how the baking turned out. Next time they'll be begging you to make those cupcakes :)

Like you said, maybe she was just crabby because she didn't feel well. Whatever it was, it seems she's back in your corner now.

I'm so greatful for your good news.

Your so lucky to have a second chance with your Mom. :)

I also believe, like you, she wasn't feeling well that day and wouldn't tell you.

Also when i made the comment about agreeing when you said she was worried 'about who would take care of her' before her heart attack..I wanted to share that with my mom-- and I think yours-- after losing your Dad. ..she might be really scared. I know now my mom was and wouldn't voice that..just got 'grouchy' so heads up Lollie, and enjoy your second chance with your mom.

Hug to you and thanks for the up date.

Russia- the cupcakes were suggestions from JKMUNCHKIN from an earlier post! She suggested them to show people that gluten-free is good, and it worked!

Judyin Philly- Thanks for your words. I think it's easy to get so wound up in your own problems/life, that you lose site of others. I felt really bad that day, but my mom has since confessed, she hadn't been well for days, but hadn't wanted to worry me. I miss read her "grouchy" as meanness. I will be more careful in the future to try and keep in mind she has alot going on too. I do feel like this is a second chance, I will not waste it!

Thanks for the concern. FYI they kept her in ICU because they are changing up her meds and need to monitor her on them. I really miss her. They have very limited visiting hours and no phones. I hope they move her to a normal room, so I can at least see her.

I'll keep ya'll posted!
