Me HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0301; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2, 7)
Husband HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0302; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2,8)



The whole family has been soy free since February, gluten free since June 2006.

The whole family went back to a gluten diet October 2011.  We never had official testing done and I decided to give gluten a go again.  At this point I've decided to work on making some gluten free things again, though healthwise everyone seems to be fine.  The decision to add gluten back in was also made based on other things I'd read about the 2nd sequence of genes.  It is my belief that we had a gluten intolerance, but thanks to things I've learned here, I know more what to keep an eye on.  If you have a confirmed case of celiac, please don't go back to gluten, it's a lifelong lifestyle change.

I don't know why but I've found that castrated males make much better pets.

Ooops :blink: LOL! I think the above statement could apply to men too!!! :lol::lol:

:lol: As soon as I read that line, I burst out laughing!

No wonder your eczema is flaring up--remember to breathe, and that everything is going to be fine. :)

I hope they get Alan in on Friday, so that can be over and done with. Sometimes the wait is the hardest part.

My husband and younger son's middle names are Alan--even spelled the same :D

Nikki-UK is your son's biopsy still on for tomorrow? They delayed it a week, right?

As of yesterday, it was still on. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they don't move it at the last minute. :)

Aww guys,thanx for remembering.

Well it all went ahead and Alan had it done under general anaesthetic (so he didn't know a thing about it!)

but it was a very long day!!

We had to arrive at the hospital at 7.30am-which meant leaving at 5.45 am as we had to get through London traffic.

Alan was first on the list,but then had to be put back as they wanted to speak to his cardiologist (at another London hosp) due to him still having a heart murmur.

All went well though-and he woke up ravenous!!!

No clear answers yet-the doc explained that they looked at one sample (they took around 18 samples)under the microscope,and it 'looked' like slightly blunted villi-but he couldn't be sure,and will wait until the labs have had a better look.

The doc will ring me with the results on Friday. :unsure:

Although Alan has some symptoms of coeliac,I can't say that he's 'ill' as such.

During our day on the paediactric gastro ward-it unsettled me a bit,and kind of made me feel like 'what am I doing here?'

There were 2 other kids in his ward that were desperately ill (one with Crohns disease,and another with Ulcerative Colitis).

One 12 year old boy was crying because the docs had told him he needed a resection of his bowel,and therefore would need a 'bag' for a while- :(

Makes you realise how lucky you are.

Unfortunately it's further bad news on the kitty front.

I had to rush Felix to the vet as his breathing was laboured-he had x-rays,and it turns out he is in heart failure :(

He had alot of fluid drained off his lungs and around his heart-poor little fella was really struggling to breath.

He's home now-on diuretics (Frusemide) to keep the fluid moving,but the vet has warned me that it's not a long term solution-and that it's just a question of time :(:(

He's sleeping alot,but seems alot more comfortable.

On a happier note,my hubby has an older son (he's 21 yrs) from a previous relationship.

He had moved away-and we didn't see him much.(they had a difficult relationship)

He turned up over the weekend to inform us that he's a Dad and Terry (hubby) is a Granddad!!! :D (can't tell you how much we are all ribbing him about being a Grandpa!)

There's nothing like a baby to bring family back together-and Terry's is overjoyed at his Granddaughter (she is beautiful!!)

.....wait a minute,does that make me a step Grandmother!!! :lol: .Oh my word!! :lol::lol:

Thanks guys-

See ya :D

Nikki,

I was wondering how Alan did--I even told my husband about you all! I'm glad that he sailed through it and was feeling good right after. Hunger is always a good sign :D Well, I guess now you just wait until Friday (again). Let me know :)

Poor Felix! The little guy has really been through it! Good that he's comfortable.

The story of Terry's son gave me goosebumps! How wonderful for the two of them to be able to come back together over the baby. Such good news for the whole family. :)

Wow, that's right--you're a step-grandma now! :o

Yep,he has big green eyes!

He's eating well this morning (just as well-I crush his medicine up in his food!) and is generally being spoilt rotten with a new fluffy bed and offerings of ham!

Back to the vets tomorrow for him to check his progress ..... :unsure:

There's our regal-looking Felix! Sounds like he's relaxing in style, and hopefully doing much better. :D
