Peter, you hold a special place in my heart. You were the first person to respond to my very first post on here, so long ago. I was a shellshocked, overwhelmed little thing who couldn't imagine how I could possibly combine the diabetes diet and the gluten-free one...and for the rest of my life! You gave sage advice in your pm. Thanks, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY! :)

11 year-old Son had negative blood panel, but went on gluten-free diet of his own volition to see if his concentration would improve, his temper abate, and his energy level would increase. Miraculous response!

Thanks, everyone for the kind thoughts. It has been a pretty good day so far, and shortly Jacquie will be taking me out for dinner.

Again, thanks all. Dinner was wonderful. We went to a celiac-friendly steak and seafood place near us (The Keg, for any Canadians wondering).

It is so nice to have so many friends all over.

My mother was born in Minnesota and raised in California, and she wanted to have a "Fourth of July" baby. She was in labor for most the of the third, but managed to hold on until after midnight for my entrance to the world.

Today is a special day for me, and this forum is a special place. :)
