Thank you everyone for the birthday wishes. My toy poodle and I have the same birth date BUT, many, many years apart.

I had a wonderful morning and a huge nap in the afternoon.

Lisa really got people wondering about my ride to the prison. 6 of us rode bides down to the Florence, AZ prison GIFT SHOP. They sell these neat purses that are made out of new Arizona license plates. They are so well made and have a leather detachable strap. The one I bought is shaped like the old mailboxes that people used to attach to the side of their home. Except mine is a little smaller.

Then we all went to the small town of Coolidge and had a great breakfast or lunch at a place we went to last Sunday. The owner/mgr? is so nice. This time I brought my own bread. She even gave us the same waitress so that there would not be any problems. So this "pain in the Celiac a__" got to again enjoy eating with friends.

So I really enjoyed my 65th birthday. My best friend said that it was a very special day as everyone I knew 4 years ago, thought I would be dead before my 62nd. Isn't life wonderful!!!

May everyone have a wonderful Easter (no matter their religious preference).

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.
