Going on our May Croatia trip in just a few days so thought I'd drop in to tell you that I've not dropped off the face of the planet.  Will be happy to trade snow for green grass, blooming plants and warm temps.  Cannot wait to see what our house renos look like!  :D

 

Please tell me I won't miss our Bingley too much.  :(

 

"Talk" to you soon!  Will report back on some of the intriguing culinary delights we discover (I'm sure there will be one or two as usual).

Caio, Bella! and Safe journey. 

 

No worries about Bingley. We had to leave our Bella for a month and she did fine with a pet sitter.

We left some of our shirts for her to snuggle into our scent.

 

You deserve this vacation in the sunshine and already,

You need the spring and sun and to get out of that frozen tundra!

 

You may miss your new little guy but you have so much to look forward to that you will soon have little time to spend missing him. I'm sure he'll find himself equally distracted, as dogs do.

 

And just think, by the time you come back there may even be some green in your tundra too. :D

We definitely do need the sun and warmth and green.  Everything is all white and/or brown.  Not a stitch of green (well, except for the shirt I am wearing at the moment). 

 

And you are right about Bingley.  We adore him but to be honest it will be a great break, just my husband and I.  There is so much to see and do there we could be occupied within an hour radius for many years.  There is the sea, castle ruins, higglepiggledy ancient villages, towns over 2,000 years old with cobblestone streets, Roman ruins, gobsmackingly gorgeous scenery and amazing food.  :)  

 

My back pain is my huge concern - these long flights nearly kill me.  Honestly.  From our door here to our door there is 36 hours of no sleep, intense pain (most of all, being forced to sit in those brutal torture chambers they call airplane seats) and so on but a good massage therapist is waiting for me at the other end.  Just wish there were painkillers strong enough to help but alas...there are not.  I assume it is sort of akin to childbirth.  You go through agony and then right before your eyes lies your hopes and dreams.  Then you forget the ick.

ah, the essence of vacation....no "ick" factor :)

 

I know how hard it is to travel, hon, and I wonder....can you get some low dose muscle relaxers maybe? skelaxin is not as hard on the system

as flexeril (so I am told)

 

Now, you know how I am about drugs, but maybe there is something for you to take perhaps?

 

I hate the thought of you in pain for so long. I was pretty ICKY after just 1200 miles.

    • Just recently found this article about a woman suffering from neuropathy which was caused by copper deficiency caused by Celiac Disease. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19901719 Copper deficiency myeloneuropathy due to occult celiac disease. "...the authors suggest that some cases of ataxia associated with celiac disease are likely due to copper deficiency myeloneuropathy."
    • Do EoE and celiac disease generally come in tandem?  Does having one necessarily mean having the other? Had an EGD today expecting to have an entirely different outcome.  A short history: Lap Band placed 10 yrs ago with a weight loss of 173-ish lbs. Am a 47 y/o F experiencing uncontrolled vomiting, several times a day, and abnormal, unwanted continued weight loss. Too thin IMO, at 133. Experience random and lengthy bouts of burning (scalding,  really)  mouth syndrome (which I believe is a diagnosis recognized only by those experiencing it, and has not an official diagnosis of anything... yet). At the urging of my children and my parents alike, all of whom see me wasting away before their very eyes, and concerned for my well-being (if not my life),  I began looking for answers. Assuming my answer would sound something like this... "let's remove your lap band immediately". Problem solved.  Not so.  Lap and in perfect condition and placement, and not the cause of any restriction whatsoever, as all fluid was removed 3 yrs ago. Food from over 12 hours previously ingested was still hanging out in the lower portion of my esophagus.  Dr. susoects a high concentration of eosinophils and EoE and/or celiac disease is also suspected.  4 samples have been sent for biopsy.  I knew nothing of either of these two diseases until 2 hours ago, and I am, at best, confused.  Lots of info to digest. Should I begin eliminating wheat, dairy, eggs... Etc. prior to biopsy results? Or wait for Dr. orders? History of Grave's (mom), and Hashimoto's (sister). I've had asthma and chronic bronchitis and pneumonia since childhood. Any  and all info/help/suggestions are more than welcome. Also, feel free to let me know if I'm way off base and prematurely/overly concerned.  I'd be ok with that too, as I tend to overthink things.    Thanks! 
    • Thanks desirun. I have takenhim off gluten and he has improved out of sight. Only times he hasbeen sick since was when he ate something with gluten. His 14 yr old brother has just been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes and now coeliac screen has come back positive for him as well. Ttg was 745. normal is anything under 20.  Waiting on gene test for him before scheduling biopsy. Makes it more likely that my younger son does have coeliac now I think. Will also be getting my daughter tested asap. 
    • I've done a lot of "hotel hobo-ing" pre-gluten-free and post-gluten-free. Previously, I did a lot of traveling for university sports and was concerned with saving money/having reliable food that would be nutritious while competing. Now I am more concerned with not getting poisoned. Bring [dry] rice or corn grits and cook them like oatmeal using either a kettle at the hotel or in the microwave. This does not take up much room in a bag for flying. I personally make my own rice grits using my coffee grinder (do not use brown rice though - it'll take a long time to cook!), but you can probably buy them pre-made.  You might also be able to snag single serving honey, peanut butter, jam, sugar, salt from the hotel itself if you're super thrifty . But I usually just buy a jar of peanut butter, tub of yogurt and some fresh fruit or vegetables from a grocery store. Maybe some jerky if I'm feeling fancy.   If the hotel room doesn't come with a kettle or microwave, you can ask for one. I have never had a problem asking for either a kettle or a microwave when I told the staff I had "severe food allergies" or a "medical reason." . You could also use the coffeemaker to boil water/prepare stuff, but I would not if you are sensitive. Lots of people like old, gluten-eating me use the coffeemaker to cook instant noodles and oatmeal (yes, it does actually work). I would hazard that unlike the mugs/cups they give you in the room, the coffeemaker only gets a superficial rinse between customers. I personally bring a single use drip cone and filters for my coffee or just get the hotel coffee.
