  5. Hi everyone, I just need support, and to vent somewhere about how hard this all is! My 4yo son was diagnosed with celiac disease in mid April. He was frequently vomiting at least 3-4 times a week, not growing well, really sick, etc. He also has a whole work up of other medical issues, but I won't go into detail about everything. They had to do an endoscope on him, and found he was severely inflamed, his villia (not spelling that right) were blunted, and on his biopsy, it came back positive for celiac disease. I am a stay at home mom to 6 kids, and started crying with his diagnosis, because feeding a family healthy and getting dinner on the table every night was hard enough, now I had to cut out gluten. Soon after my son was diagnosed, I realized my husband had very similar symptoms to celiac disease, and he was found to have it as well. My pediatrician recommended all my children be tested, and my 4yo, as well as our 10yo daughter, 2yo son, and 12 month old baby girl were found to have celiac disease as well. Our 11yo daughter, and 8yo daughter and I don't have the disease. Not being able to grab something fast on busy nights is the hardest thing I am faced with. What have you all done to help combat that? My mother suggested freezing a few gluten free casseroles, and just popping those in on busy days. What casseroles do you know of that freeze and cook well? I have a ton of recipes I have been using, alot of my regular recipes were already gluten free, or I just had to modify them a little. Also, what bread machine do you use, and where can I buy one? We don't eat alot of bread, since it's sooooo expensive, and if I could make it at home, it would save us alot of money. I know this is long, I just feel so overwhelmed, and things just seem so hard and time consuming now. Another question I have is, were your kids ever anemic from celiac disease? My 12 month old daughter is anemic, and they are trying to figure out why. Thanks everyone!!!!!
