FANTASTIC!! :D :D :D So great that you guys met up... . . .we need an Official Report of Minutes, please.... .. ..

We talked a bit about Suzzie's dogs and her cat. We also discussed why she's not been on the board and good old politics. And the most important thing we talked about was our trip and how it came about :)

KC could work.

We're in Arizona tonight, in a city with 28,000 residents. Limited food options, but we choose a steak place from the AAA book and check it out on the 'net. Family-owned business.

So we are seated, and the server is ready to take our order. I start into my queries, mentioning wheat. Well, she asks if I am a celiac, because she is too. We talked a bit about it. I felt completely safe in her hands. Good food and great service.

Wow, you guys were so lucky to find a Tia Chi class in the salt flats like that! What are the odds on that? Wow! :)

Arizona!

WardGirl drove up the 5.5 mile ascent on a very rough track that was barely a road--her first real 4x4 off-road experience. Slow going--with stops it took about an hour for the climb.

More Arizona tomorrow, but tonight we had gluten-free pizza at Picazzo's. :)

DRAT!!!! I had a whole message written and inadvertently hit my mouse and POOF it was gone. Tony was home overnight because he and Rob went to Great Adventure in Mass. today. He'll be home Wed for hiss final appointment with is surgeon (his stitches look ilk Frankenstein). At least for a man it's a badge of courage.

I hope that this finds you all doing well. I keep up with the posts but the pneumonia (or possibly the 3 antibiotics I am on for it) wipes me out. Napping a lot and when I have the patience to read I've kindled almost all the books by Louise Hay. She believes you can heal yourself and steps you through it. At the least she's a very good writer and gives a lot of positive affirmations. Started making jewelry again and last Tuesday I had Selia (the girl I tutor) and her siblings and mom over for crafts. Of course I snuck a lesson in for Selia. As soon as I regain my strength I'll start back tutoring her one on one. It was easier Tuesday to have all of them over.

Tony surprised us with something special. The three of us are going to see "The Boss" on the 18 (I think I may have mentioned it in a previous post).

Well dear psillies my energy is fading and I have to try to stay awake until the laundries' done. Superman's been doing it but I thought I'd surprise him.

OK, off to seamy timer and nap until the laundry is dry.I miss you all a lot!

Love & healing hugs,

Loey

P.S he's looking into Law Enforcement internships for next summer. One is in Minnesota.That's the online that pays.I hope interns don't get gunssad.gif

With long draw out posts that I care about, I type them in Word first. Then I copy/paste them in to the forum window for posting. That way if something goes wrong, I still have the post. Just a suggestion. B)

I do the same thing as Vincent, except I type them in Winders notepad. The text is larger and easier to read in Notepad than in the reply window on the forum, so that's a nice added benefit.

Kick that laundry's butt Loey! :)

Nice pic of the Ward-Gurl and Peoter there!

So frustrating. I had an ortho appt for J once and I left after 2 hours. Was able to get him a better doc. Why are some doctors' offices really good at scheduling and some so bad?

Had a 9am appointment once - first person, and sat around waiting for half an hour. The receptionist told me that the doc didn't usually get in until 9:30 or so....

Had a new doc in a few weeks.

This is all really interesting in light of what happened last week in this household.....DD had an appointment for a colonoscopy, and usually there is about a month's wait for one of these procedures. She got the referral from our GP and the specialist's office called me the next day -- could we get in there in 48 hours? Wow....sure! And not only a three-day wait, but once we got to the appointment, we didn't even have time to open our reading material.. . . ..DD was called into the exam room immediately, and I filled out the forms. Talk about efficient.

But here's why: Before my daughter went in, the receptionist informed us that there was a sixty-dollar charge. I stared at her blankly. I said, "But my husband had a colonoscopy last year, and it was covered by the province". And she replied, "he must have had it done at one of the hospitals", (he did) "....and this is a privately-run clinic".

Aaaaaahhhhhh. That explains it. We had no wait time, ultra-efficient.....but that cost sixty bucks.

Ya get what ya pay for. <_<

We are on vacation in the Monterey CA area. We kayaked this morning and saw lots of seals, otters, birds and more large jelly fish than you could imagine.

...

Aw man, wish I felt well enough often enough to both keep up here and to pop over the hill to meet for a quick coffee or something. Your sched looks pretty packed!

I'm just 30-40min from the northern side of Monterey Bay, but don't pop over near often enough.

Those Watsonville strawberries are legendary! Some as big as a fist!

We are currently in Sonoma County, California, north of San Francisco.

A Psilly Psummit is planned for tomorrow morning in the SF Marina district.

Gah! Another!

:(

Nice AZ pic. Lots more forest in AZ than the popular "all desert & saguaro cactus" perception would allow. ;)

Haven't gotten any work done on the house the last two days, but I have been Suzie homemaker. The pirate and I picked about 10 pounds of blackberries yesterday, froze 6, and we're eating our way through the last 4. Just went out and got maybe 8 more pounds, so I'll make fruit leather. We'll get more tomorrow for coffee cake and jam.

Also, um ...acquired... a bunch of yellow plums from the neighbour's tree which I'm going to cut in half and put on the roof to try to dry.

    •   Ironic, We went entirely gluten-free in our home after 2016 for how bad my neurological , joints, mood gets now in addition to my former gi, skin, and other issues . My son shows signs of my early symptoms and voluntarily went off gluten, corn, and milk like me as he did his own food like diary symptom tracking. My daughter continues on gluten outside the home. We warn her of our concern for at times in toddler hood she was constipated and would bloat.  We asked their Dr to test them as I was undergoing my testing and she said no until I had my diagnosis. As we know these things take time and my son went gluten-free . He said after watching mom on my gluten challenge that he will not go back on it .  We await technology further research and we silently watch our soon to be teen girl for we know even if tested negative it can show up one day.  She says I know mom I know. The more Whole Foods here in the home we notice she actually craves gluten / processed foods less and is slowly transitioning as well.  Does your child also naturally eat less gluten and processed as well away from home? I wonder if the taste buds / craving change as the parents diet changes food options.  Thoughts?
    • Funny though, my brother and I were just discussing this. He has celiac and both his son and him are gene positive. Both were TTG/EMA negative but never tested for DGP. My brother had damage on endoscopy. They have not scoped his son. He feels his son is symptomatic but not his daughter.  I have conflicting positive and negative DGP, recent damage on biopsy and negative TTG/EMA. Two years ago my son had negative TTG and DGP. No EMA. I plan to have him gene tested and full antibodies screened again.  My brother has opted to have his children follow a gluten-free diet. I am currently allowing my son a normal diet.  But my own chaos with diagnosis, and my brother's too because he was TTG negative, makes me ultra sensitive to the possibility.  My son's ped doc has a  daughter who was recently diagnosed with celiac.  it was in the family so her mom, my son's doctor, suspected it as soon as she started getting digestive issues and losing weight.  she pretty much told me that she was glad that they didn't put her on a gluten-free diet as a child so she can enjoy eating the things she wanted to Throughout her life.  I have to say I agree to a large extent. There are many diseases that we could get At anytime. we cannot change our lives for that reason alone.  However that being said, my family has both thyroid disease and multiple sclerosis as well.   I know all too well the naive statements and assumptions that doctors can make in the face of science still working to find conclusions.  There are other types of TTG the doctors don't typically test for.  I am well aware of this, and sensitive to it. As a parent, I'm going to allow my son to continue on a normal diet for now, but we are going to pursue testinG  And I'm going to watch it very closely.  
    • It might generate based on traffic searches  or posts etc. My guess. I read them and respond because I wasn't on here as a member in 2012. I only use to visit then. So it's new to me V. happy friday   😋  
    • Just saying her TTg was 0 & her IgA was 27 doesn't tell us anything. Every lab can have different values so we need the reference ranges not just the results. Can you look back at the lab report & get those & post them please? Did they tell you she MUST be eating gluten every single day until all testing is done? Don't make a fatal mistake & take her off of gluten yet.
    • When the doc did the endoscopy, did he take biopsies? How many? From what locations? Get your records!!!! If he didn't take biopsies for celiac disease then he can NOT say you don't have it. 99% of the time, villi damage can not be SEEN by the GI doc during the endoscopy. And yes, the doc has no clue when saying it doesn't matter that you were gluten free for 3 years!
