  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. Dr. Lewey is actually the only dctor I've ever had do a GI. In all honesty, I don't really remember him at all as a result of the drugs I was on!! But... I'm still alive, so I think that he did a pretty good job His results were totally confusing to me though: "Although we can neither conclude, nor exclude the presence of celiac disease, trial of a gluten free diet is worthwhile." I tested positive for one of the genes, which is why they ordered the upper GI. That showed some deterioration of the small intestine as well as mucosal abnormality which is why he suggested the gluten-free diet. I've been on it since April and have seen great results since then! Best of luck!

    i worked at a Perkins' for 6 years all through high school and college... I definitely would not put my health in the cooks' hands either. However, there are plenty of things you should be able to be safe with: poached eggs - because they drop the egg in a small glass dish and boil it with water in the microwave, so it doesn't ever even touch a grill. meats - because they do cook all of their meats on a separate grill from the breads. If you go in the morning especially you should be fine. There is definitely a possibility of mixing things together in the evening, but they clean the grills every evening so there shouldn't be any CC issues if you're eating in the am. fruit - they keep fruit by the salad veggies, so there's nothing to worry about!! hope this helps!
