Welcome to the forum Judy. I have met your son on many occasions and you should be proud of him. His knowledge on Celiac is wonderful. I was hoping to get up to Vegas to meet you, but did not make it. Hopefully I will be able to, when you visit Chris again.

HI everyone! Thanks for the messages! I'm looking forward to accessing all your collective knowledge about living gluten free. At my workplace there are three other celiacs and just recently 4 children of others were diagnosed. I'll be passing on this helpful website. Thanks!

Dear judym,

We are more than happy to share! Send them on! The more the merrier! I have a starter list that should help if you or anyone else needs it. I feel making things as simple as possible is important. This disease complicates our lives enough, so anything that can possibly make it easier should be utilized!

Sincerely,

It is good to see your post Judy. I am seeing Chris this weekend. I am going up to LV for three nights by myself. With my energy level, I will probably sleep alot, but that is OK. I just need some time by myself and my hubby agrees. The last two months have not been good in the health dept. and I don't know what the future holds. I am looking forward to this time. And Chris and I will meet for dinner or lunch, depending on his schedule. I so enjoy listening to him.

Cool beans. Welcome JudyRN! How did you come to be tested? There's a lot of people out here who want their family members to do the same...

*no pressure*

Just enjoy the site for a while,
