I was thinking we need Laughing Lyme Ladies Lunching, we could have really sharp lime green hats and bags and we could have fun and we could help people understand that we can use illness as a gateway to compassion for ourselves and for the world that so much needs it.

Love and Blessings

Kind of like our own "red hat club"!!! How fun!

Hey, gals--I was just getting a much-needed haircut, and the TV was on --Montel was doing a show on eosiniphilic disorders. Unfortunately, the volume was off, but I saw printed on the screen something about eosiniphilic disorder causing 20 different food allergies in one child.

I'll make a separate thread about this, just in case it helps someone!

The oddest thing is, years ago, my cat had a recurrent itchy spot on his chin that he kept scratching bloody, and the vet said it was eosiniphilic ulcerative complex. I remember working rather hard to memorize that one! (Wonder if there's such a thing as feline DH?)

So, in the red hat club, they were red/purple if they are over 50. under fifties wear like pink and light purple. So should we start color-coding our group....lyme-green...come on, what others should we do? :)

You get to pick for eos since you're the one being tested for it. Gluten intolerance/celiac -- shall we wear wheat brown? That's so boring. Those with Lyme can wear the green hat with a sash on it in the color of their other issues.

Rinne,

Yes, I believe you are tired due to the events of the week in Calgary and getting a diagnosis. You have been getting so little sleep (in my eyes) that it would seem you are finally allowing yourself to get some much needed rest.

Rachel,

How have things been with you? When's your next appointment?

Carla,

It certainly wouldn't hurt for you to get tested for Lyme. Your new doctor would probably be willing to do that and use Igenix. Especially if you had tick bites when you were younger. We got a lot of flea bites moving into where we are, so even though they are a remoted possibility I'm going to be keeping that in the back of my mind.

Laura,

Keep posting about eos. I will also keep that in the back of my mind. I like learning things and can pass them on to others if the need arrives.

Miamia,

How have you been? When do you get the results from your tests last week.

Donna,

Yae!!! Keep it up. Glad it is easier to follow this since it is written down for you.

Julie,

You are not a lousy participant. Stop that talk!

Andrea-

how is your father?

how are you doing with the new food intolerances?

I won't have the test results for at least another week- I hate waiting- I get so impatient when it has to do with results and my health- I just wanna know so I can do something about it.

I hope youre well

Miamia

Haven't talked to my father since the last time. I usually try to talk to him every week or two now. Hopefully he'll be more coherant next time. This has just made me realize that he's getting older, he's 78. Little girls daddies don't remain invincible forever do they.

We are getting through with the intolerances. A lot of mine are just over into the low side so I'm thinking I'll be ok with those. That goes for garlic. Talitha is just over on that and I'm on the line between no reaction and low. Some of them Mitch isn't too interested in testing. We'll see.

I also hate waiting for test results for anything. It's hard to sit back and wait. Hope you get some answers soon.

"My brother said it was a hat,

And so I put it on

Til Daddy asked, "Where the heck's

The toiler plunger gone?"

Carla--I can't possibly wear wheat--I would be terribly washed out :lol:

Maybe something brighter? I'm open to suggestion...

Then we could all re-do our avatars in our designated color :D

Alison..... :lol::lol::lol:

Ok, for some seriousness. Just talked to my mom who got back from vacation this weekend. She talked to a friend down in Arizona who just happened to be over visiting my dad and his wife. My mom learned that dad has a tumor on his kidney. He's in a lot of pain, hence the meds. He's not coherant, sleeps a lot. His wife is upset that he hasn't told my brother and I what's going on. I'm upset too. I would really like to go see him if his time is going to be so short. Moms going to see if she can get any more info or not since he won't talk to us about it. I guess that answers my question as to why he said he wasn't going to be around long. :(

I'm sad now......Seth is over here laughing away......can't stay sad with a smiling, laughing baby can I? :):(

Andrea, I'm sorry about your dad.

Patti, wheat would wash me out, too. How about Celiac.com blue? The darker one ... the color of the logo.

Oh, Andrea :( Do they know if the tumor is malignant? Might it be benign?

Supposedly either it is too progressed to do chemo or my dad refused it, although I think my mom said it was too far progressed. He had cancer removed 5 years ago with the other kidney and has had cat scans but I guess nothing was caught.

Seth's nickname is Sunshine. Although he's getting more Stormy as he gets older and copies his older siblings.....he's still more sunshine than storm at this point though.
