Tell Mommagoose You Love Her

Recommended Posts

MommaGoose, our good friend and respected veteran member of the board, has informed me that she is going to eat worms. So i am starting this thread specifically for those of us who know and love her to cheer her up cuz she needs it. She's gonna kill me, but it'll take her awhile to get here so I've got time.

Goosey- You were one of my biggest supporters when I first joined this board. You were the one who encouraged me to take control of Celiac's and not let it control me when I was afraid to go horse back riding because of gluten.. If not for you, I wouldn't have spent last October riding till mu butt was sore. You rock..... there's no two ways about it and I think it's time for a love fest. :wub::wub::wub::wub::wub::wub:

No, she is not leaving us. But she is down and we have certainly all been there and will be there again. So, what Beverly is saying is that we need to tell Lisa that she is very much loved on this board and that we treasure her for all of her contributions. So, Lisa I am sending MANY HUGS to you and may you wrap yourself in them to give you comfort.

No she is not leaving us but she's bummed and wants to go eat worms:

Nobody likes me, everybody hates me,

Guess I'll go eat worms,

Long, thin, slimy ones; Short, fat, juicy ones,

Itsy, bitsy, fuzzy wuzzy worms.

Down goes the first one, down goes the second one,

Oh how they wiggle and squirm.

Up comes the first one, up comes the second one,

Oh how they wiggle and squirm.

It's called The Worm Song

http://astrorat.blogspot.com/2006/09/worm-song.html Oh .... gotta run... I SEE HER!

Enterolab positive results only June 06:
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.

MommaGoose! CANADA LOVES YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!

You can't eat worms, they haven't been confirmed gluten free yet...... :P

Got the package today! YIPPEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

Just to let you know: I am making grits casserole tomorrow! Oh, gingerbread halloweeen treats AND the jawbreakers are already all gone! You should have seen the kids' faces, each one having different coloured lips depending on what colour they got! :lol:

Regarding the stuff you sent me, what can I say, except you mean the world to me too and I thank God every single day that he sent me friends like you to carry me through the rough days, so my friend, let me carry you when you need it...... :)

Will call you tomorrow, just got home now from Mom's place. I stocked her up with all kinds of soups and stuff that will be easy to digest. Apparently, the doctor said she might be able to come home tomorrow so I went over and tidied up her place, washed her dishes, laundry etc. Also, I washed out and put away her ashtrays. It has been six days she has been in the hospital and hasn't had a cigarette and we are praying that she won't light up when she gets home. The doctors were really concerned about her CO2 intake, which was only at 88% (she has COPD from being a lifelong smoker). I promised her that if she quit, I would quit along with her..... THAT'S WHEN I'M GONNA NEED PLENTY OF CHEERING ON SO THERE IS NO WAY YOU CAN HAVE YOUR MOUTH FULL OF WORMS!!!!!

Hugs, luv ya Darlink!

Isn't there a movie out about a kid that eats worms? I know there's a book about it! MommaGoose, are you gonna eat them fried, boiled, sauteed....? Or you stick a hook in 'em and drop a line in the nearest pit for some bass. A fishfry sounds like more fun than eating worms!

Yes, very cute song.....don't think I know that one. Always learning something here.....

Momma Goose - glad you're staying. If simply for the fact that you bring silly jokes and think we're funny on the 40-something thread, you are quite funny yourself, and you add a lot. :)

Pretty sure worms are gluten-free. ;)

See- I told you so :wub::wub::wub:

If I COULD eat worms, they would have to be covered in chocolate, stuufed with peanut butter then put in a Twinkie and deep fried. And that's just not gonna happen!
