Smackl is auditioning for the middle school jazz band today . . . he's not convinced he wants to do it. Why you might ask? . . . Too hard? Doesn't like Jazz? No, it's because practice is BEFORE school. I told him he would get up at the same time and just eat breakfast in the car on the way there. He's not convinced. Chances are he won't make the cut anyway. This is the first year he's eligible to even try out and they don't take very many kids.

Guess who made the cut? . . . must have been that extremely large donation that hubby and I made to the Performing Arts Department. :P

I think you need to spell the whole thing out, rather than being Ms. c.c. -- wrong connotation :rolleyes:

Oh, and somebody should probably warn Nickers - it's about time for her boiler to erupt again. :blink:

So I just thought of a funny-cute story I haven't shared. My parents were on nursery duty one day for church, and only one little 3 year old boy was in there, Gabe. So my dad picks him up and takes him over to the window where he heard a helicopter, shows it to Gabe, and asks him, "Where do you think the helicopter is going, Gabe?" (Keep in mind this little boy ADORED my father) So Gabe replies, in the most adult, DUH tone you can possibly imagine, "The AIRPORT."

Stupid adults..... :lol: :lol:

Here the OSU marching band making their feeble attempt at marching straight and playing music at the same time. They even had to get a horse involved to help them make some headway.

OSU Marching Band Games

I recognized 3 or 4 games but I think there are quite a few more I didn't recognize. Anybody else know what they are? 9 minute video, with music of course.

I took that as a challenge . . . and brought in my 11 year old expert (Skeeter). My 13 year old expert (Smackl) is in the middle of Spanish tutoring.

This is what Skeeter has come up with:

Space Invaders

Pokemon

Pikachu (a Pokemon character)

Tetris

Mario Brothers

Super Star (from Mario Bros)

Mario

Halo

Zelda

Epona (the horse from Zelda . . . way cool, by the way)

Bird Guy (from Zelda. . . not his official name)

Bowser's Castle (from Mario Bros)

PacMan

GAME OVER

What else you got, GeeEfff????!!!!

Heck, he beat me all to crap.

I had Tetris, and Pac Man, Halo ( cause they speiled it out), and I thot Space Invaders and Pong, but I may have been imagining those ones. I was expecting to see Bio-shock, but didn't catch it if it was there.

Geez, this is hard stuff! Game over for me tho, Skeeter is the weener! :)

Patteigh's got a bunch of (big-thumbed?) guys up in her bedroom, getting gluteny crumbs all over everything.... . ...this is likely a fantasy of many women.., . ...not celiac women, mind you -- but those with properly functioning immune systems.....

In a deep, breathy voice... .. ....."C'mon, baby... . .. ...gluten me.. . . ...here, now....don't stop. . ......"

    • The year to recover?  It seems pretty standard around here despite some literature  stating it only takes months for villi to recover.  That may be true, but most celiacs have systemic issues.  Neurological issues are usually the last to resolve, if at all.   And let's not forget that the gluten-free diet has a steep learning curve that can delay healing.   I have read sites that promote a Whole Foods diet without gluten in an attempt to calm down inflammation or improve an autoimmune disorder.  It works for some but not all, but it is certainly worth considering.  For me, I was undiagnosed for years like so many celiacs.   I also have Hashi's which was diagnosed 20 years ago.  Since going gluten-free, after my celiac disease diagnosis, my thyroid has shrunk and my nodules are gone.  However, this past winter, I had a tooth infection, the flu, a cold and now my thyroid antibodies are high again.  I also developed autoimmune hives (like clockwork, they appear at 3:00 pm) as a result (I think).  My immune system is constantly running on high alert.  I have allergies to so many things.  But....what is a girl to do? Beside a cocktail of antihistamines, I  move forward.  I am "healthy".  I can still ride my bike, swim and run.  Maybe not as fast (who am I kidding...not fast at all) as when I was younger in my 30 and 40's.  I have Type 2 diabetes despite being thin.  Like celiac disease, diabetes is genetic.   Read the Newbie 101 under coping.  Make sure everything is gluten free.  you would be surprised at hidden sources or dealing with cross contamination.  I know your family has celiac disease, but unless you walk the walk daily, you do not get it.  But...maybe you do!  
    • Does he run a lot? On hard ground? My ferritin started at 74 and is now 20. My rbc count was normal but showed mild anemia after an 18 hour fast.   I initially also thought it might be due to malabsorption, and it may be, although my gut doesn't show a ton of damage. Coincidentally I started running around  all of this, with A 6 month break in between, and have also recently read that Runners Who log a lot of miles generally are pretty low on ferritin if they don't supplement.  I only do between 6-15 Miles per week.  I eAt a mixed green salad about 5 times a week, red meat a couple times a week, and then a lot of other high iron foods.  lamb stew is a tremendous source of iron, as well as mussels. I am a big fan of garden lights chocolate zucchini muffins as well each mini muffin contains 20% of the daily value.  I Like to eat Two for breakfast with my coffee.  if he stopped eating gluten about a month ago you might still be able to get the blood test done. I'm sure you have read by now that you need to be eating gluten to be tested.  antibody start falling Right away but for some people it takes a long time.   I'm not a doctor but I would think that if you have enough damage to mal absorb iron then it would take a lot longer than just 4 weeks for you to  fix that kind of damage And reabsorb it again.    did they order a total iron binding capacity?  and was the iron panel done while fasting? You don't really need to fast for a ferritin but serum Iron can easily be elevated With food.  Although symptoms vary depending on the individual I have read quite a bit online that When ferritin drops below 40 people can start getting symptomaTic.  so you are likely correct that his feeling better is related to his ferritin level increasing.  giving up gluten means giving up certain nutrients as well. So if he's already vegetarian he needs to really pay close attention to what nutrients he might be missing in his diet now if he's giving up whole grains.  
    • Thank you! I will look into it! 
    • You would honestly think that after you body goes nuts attacking your insides trying to kill the gluten after 2 days of food poisoning yourself with it the damn antibodies would show up in insane levels in your blood Life is not that easy though.
    • Some days I have 3 pieces of bread, other days I just can't handle more than 1.  I had to take a day of gluten rest after the first week.  I felt too aweful. Now I'm almost done with week 2 and I feel like I need another break.  Just so hard to do something to yourself that you know will hurt.  They just don't know how much and for how long.  There was a recent study that looked at gluten challenges in folks actually diagnosed with celiac and some took months to have elevated antibodies.   Just one day at a time.  I hope things go well for you.
