Hey Jillian! :)

Yep, he has long been a known Celiac. He even does some charity stuff...I forget what it was...and his donation went to one of the Celiac groups. Yay Celiacs!

Keith Olberman is the A-NUMBER ONE REASON my son is gluten-free and no longer miserable. I know I've posted this before, but for those of you who don't know.........

My husband and I were watching MSNBC one night during the Michael Jackson trial. Keith Olberman was auctioning off these ridiculously, stupid-funny tounge depressor puppets he used to depict the trial on a daily basis. (It was so stupid it was funny! :)) Anyway, at the end of one of his shows he mentioned that all proceeds from the E-Bay auction would be donated to one of the Celiac Disease foundations. We had never heard of it before so we googled Celiac Disease. We were truly at a loss for words when we read about it. I vividly remember saying to my husband, "My God, this sounds like Zachary." Fast forward....Zachary has now been 100% gluten-free since March 2006 and has done a complete 180. He doesn't have a single, solitary god-awful symptom that he suffered from for two years and his behavior is that of a typical 3 1/2 year-old. Talk about being at the right place at the right time....

**PS--The "highly respected" pediatric GI we took Zachary to *emphatically* told us his issues had "nothing to do with his diet" and the relationship to removing gluten and his behavior was "purely coincidental". :huh: He felt we were probably givng him too much fiber (whole grains) and it was probably making him gassy/crampy and giving him diarreah.
