Thank you everyone! It's great to be a part of such a warm, caring, loving board.

I just saw this thread......don't spend a lot of time perusing the board early in the day. :)

Seth thinks he's ready for 4th grade math....I bought ahead on some books on ebay for my school curriculum and he's into them. :lol::lol:

OK, got Seth outta here and Talitha is feeding him lunch. I guess we'll delay her afternoon class start. She doesn't like penmanship and that's the next class. She loves to feed her brother but maybe she's stalling....she has a test today. :P

Rachel and those who mentioned chocolate.....

Mitch won't go for ice cream. We did have peach crisp a few nights ago since I had peaches that needed to be eaten. I think we still have a few chocolate chips though. Micah's birthday is next week so I want to save the brownie mix for him. Mitch called twice this morning while he was waiting for his truck to be loaded. We have a calling card that he uses....no cell phone. He doesn't expect to be home before dinner so we are celebrating tomorrow for my birthday dinner. I started the tradition of favorite meals for birthdays. Don't know what the kids will do this year being gluten free. I have recipes subs I can try though. :)

Carla,

We want to take a field trip down to see Noah's ark and the sanctuary lifelike exhibit about 4 hours from here. Just not to keen on totally messing up Seth's day. Although he'd probably be fine with naps since the car ride would be so long. There is also a wildlife safari next door to that. If we go before Micah turns 4 (next week) then we'll save on his admission charge.

Julie,

No special plans. I remember my mom had a 40th birthday party and I was kicked out to a friend of my parents for the night so they wouldn't keep me awake with all the noise. When my parents built that house they put in a teakwood dancefloor. That may have been one of the few times it was used. Mainly my brother and I, along with friends played in the basement where the dancefloor was. I still miss that house. :)

Evie,

I accept. Let's just celebrate the whole weekend! :huh::lol:

    • There was a study where they checked 2 weeks on a gluten-free diet , and antibodies were still going up .  The study wasn't about that, so I think that is why they didn't go any further.   So... looks like 2 months gluten free?  If we think that antibodies are still being made at least two weeks gluten free.... account for the fact that most people need a few weeks to actually figure out and eat gluten-free...I would say it was a bit soon to re- test antibodies.     Edit it to add- if you were tested sept 12 and ate gluten for 6 more weeks before going gluten-free - who knows how high it got.  Shame on your doctor for doing the re- test so soon and discouraging you!  
    • Your numbers should not be going up at all. You are getting gluten somewhere. Do you eat out? Have you read the Newbie 101 at the top of the coping section? That will help you to ferret out how you may be getting glutened. Do you have a gluten free household or is it a shared household? Do you read ingredient labels?
    • Thank you so much!!!! I have a severe allergy, I can not even walk through a grocery store without getting a migraine. I have always used dreft but now I know for a fact that it is safe.
    • I’m 62 and have just now been tested for Celiac.  My Titer was negative, I have zero IGa and too much IGg (16) which is an indicator of intolerance at the very least and may indicate the need for another endoscopy. He also tested for EPI (exocrine pancreatic insufficiency) which was negative.  I just had a colonoscopy/endoscopy last year as a part of being diagnosed w/ Gastroparesis. I also have (among other things which I’m not sure are as relevant) - T2 Diabetes, Hashimotos Thyroiditis (late 30’s) Chronic Kidney Stones (since age 40), Osteoporosis (way before Menopause and not well controlled), and Gallbladder disease.(was removed) I’m discovering that all those I listed may be related in some way, and related to Celiac.  I haven’t seen the gastro doc for followup since the testing (obtained results from lab) so I’m not sure what he’s going to recommend.  Here’s where it gets scary... my daughter has many of the same things. She was just diagnosed with EDS (Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome) at 32.  She was diagnosed w/Glucose intolerance at 15, had her Gallbladder removed at 20, PCOS at 22, and Gluten intolerance at 30 (no testing, just her gastro’s recommendation). She’s been diagnosed w/Gastroparesis, POTS,  MAST Cell Activation Disorder, Peripheral Neuropathy, (lost use of her bladder and has a neuro stimulator) - all in the last year.  Too much coincidence for me.  This has to be all related. I keep reading more and more studies linking all these things (like EDS and Celiac) together. My daughters  geneticist is blown away by the multiple overlapping and co-morbid conditions we have and tells us it’s not uncommon. She also says research is expanding.  Sadly, the specialist docs seem baffled and can’t even begin to address our issues, and only help to manage the symptoms - sometimes. And every “Disease/Disorder” has a “diet” or protocol, and they are all at odds with each other - very frustrating.  I guess the moral of this story is to let others know that there’s a lot more to all this than meets the eye. Don’t let anyone tell you you’re fine if you have what seem to be strange unrelated symptoms. You’re not crazy. Keep fighting for understanding and knowledge. Be an advocate for yourself, you’re loved ones,  for us all.
