I just knew you'd be okay.

 

When I had my brain MRI for all the neuro symptoms,
and it was negative, I said to Jack tearfully "well, they looked at my brain, but they didn't find anything in there!!!".


which prompted laughter, of course. :D

 

Please, have a daiquiri for me, too! No, 2!!! 

 

SO happy for you, hon! xxoo

Thanks guys!

 

Last night Me and Bob, from the Red Mill, are getting things together to make brownies.  I'm gonna add walnuts and the walnuts I have are whole nuts.  So I hollar out to hubs in the garage, "how do I make chopped walnuts",  he pops his head up and starts laughing at me and says "grab a clever and have at it".  Now I'm thinking, did I really not know that?  In my defense, I thought some kind of kitchen appliance would chop nuts.  

 

I'm thinking of starting a community in Love2Travel's back yard for the "Cooking Challenged".  I know there are some of you out there who have never chopped nuts.  Anyone with me?

It sounds like you have been carried well!  I hope you will soon feel well strong, and recovered from gluten.

 

I am celebrating by making my first post for days.  My computer didn't let me post for at least 3 days.  I also had trouble reading the site.

Shall I tell it?

This works better as a visual, but here goes:

 

Little boy, dressed head to toe in a cowboy outfit goes into an ice cream shop and stares at the woman behind the counter.

She says: "well, aren't you adorable!" 

Kid pulls his little toy guns out of the holster, points them at her  and scowls,  "No, I'm not! I'm a cowboy and I'm tough, so don't make me mad!!" 

She plays along, saying: "Okay, cowboy, what'll it be?"

Kid curls his lip , points the guns again at her and says gruffly: "Gimme a sundae and make it quick!"

She can't help but smile at his tough guy routine, but asks; "would you like vanilla or chocolate ice cream ?"

Kid, becoming irritated snarls: "Chocolate and make it quick!"

She: "pineapple or hot fudge?"

Kid: "Hot fudge and make it snappy, yer makin me mad, lady"

She asks: "and do want marshmallow or whipped cream."

Kid, face turning red and waving the guns in her face yells "yer really pressing it....whipped cream! hurry it up!!"

She can't help herself: : "and do want your nuts crushed?"

 

and the Kid says>>>>>>>>>

 

 

Guess what the last line was????

 

Kid says:

Ohhhhhh...that's a good one Irish.  I was picturing Dennis The Menace as the kid and Zena, Warrior Princess as the Server.  She could do a number with those nuts.

it's.......

 

Lady: "You want your nuts crushed?"

 

Kid: "You want your boobies blown off?"

 

 

 

Probably crossed the line there, :ph34r:  but it is Colleen's celebratory thread and she likes to laugh, so I'm leaving it there. :lol:

 

for a few minutes......until we probably need to  "hide it".

    • Thank you all for taking the time to respond.  It's comforting to know I have a place to ask questions and share my concerns.   My daughter's antibodies are as follows: 1/9/17:  783.6 (before stopping gluten) 5/16/17: 69.7 8/14/17: 50.6 Her thyroid/hormones all in normal range.  An endoscopy in May showed her villi looked good with minimal damage. Her B12 (checked on 8/14/17) is excellent.  Her antibodies will be checked again when she returns home in Dec.  She avoids gluten as much as possible, however she's away at college so cross contamination is likely.  She eats extremely well -- mostly salads, vegetables, protein, fruits, rice.  When on the go she supplements with kind bars, quest bars, or Rx bars.  She'll snack on gluten-free crackers (Blue Diamond made from almonds), hummus, peanut butter, and popcorn.  Once in awhile she'll treat herself to Tate's gluten-free cookies or Halo ice cream.  She's in college so, yes, she drinks alcohol on occasion.  Titos gluten-free vodka, but no beer!  Since stopping gluten her stomach feels much better, less bloating and pain (her main complaints before stopping gluten).  I do notice when she's home on break from college she will have a healthy, nice sized portion of food at each meal and say she feels very full afterward, yet shortly after she will feel hungry again and need to reach for a snack (always a healthy one).  She takes 2 gluten free gummy Multi-Vites (same as Costco brand I believe) as well as vitamin D daily.   She was diagnosed with celiac on 1/11/17, stopped gluten immediately, and her last period started on 1/13/17.  For six years her period was very regular and it only changed once she stopped eating gluten.  I have to believe there is a connection.  The frustrating part is that nobody has any answers.  I know my daughter would feel a lot better if her cycle returned.  We will seek the advice of a nutritionist as well as continue speaking to doctors, but in the meantime if you have any more suggestions I welcome them (i.e., foods, supplements, vitamins, etc).  Thank you all very much!            
    • If only they were peanut free . I been buying my seeds from Gerbs allergen friendly foods for past 5+ years. I end up buying my almonds, walnuts, and pistachios from dedicated companies....got to admit I get a better deal on almonds but I go through 25lbs every 2 months.
    • Good to know I would like to get more nuts and seeds  but find many retailers by me have the shared equipment claim on package so I've held off other than some almonds. My daughter and I are battling over all the fresh pumpkin seeds I've been roasting so I should see if nuts .com sells some a 5 lb bag would fix the ordeal likely a need for magnesium -
    • Nuts.com is a trusted company. You can be confident with them. 
    • Personally, I only buy from gluten free list. They are packaged in one pound and five pound zip top bags. Good heavy duty bags. I buy a lot of their dried fruit and nuts and make my own trail mix. I also love their cashew flour. I much prefer it over almond flour. I also love the dried cranberry beans. I have only had a few things I haven’t cared for, but it was personal taste, not a problem with the product. Recently I bought A product that I truly hated {tiger nut flour}. I’ve ordered for years and never complained but this time I did. They immediately credited me my money. Said they just wanted me happy. I recommend them highly
