Oh he has mastered that facial expression! He does the arched brow and eye squint like no other!!!

I like to look out for the flared nostril also, now that is talent if they can throw that in there too.

:lol: :lol: Plugh-ish brain forgot to comment on this earlier but OMG, yes, he really does have that nostril flare down..........I daresay that he is the worst actor on TV, by far.......and yet, there he is, on this show for........decades? dunno

poor Pthaum :lol: acting career thwarted by failing nostril

AND THERE HE IS!!!!!!!!!!!!! unshaven, yes, but we can see yer!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :P yay! Hope Mayo has some answers for ya........

Just wanted to throw that out there for anyone interested. The Omega 3 that I got for him is formulated for kids, and I believe it is primarily cod liver oil. I give them to Luke sometimes too, although he can't swallow pills easily yet (yup, he's older, but he gags on them.) So he prefers to CHEW them. :shudder:

SARAH!!!!!!!!! good to hear this bit of good news......and, thanks for the tip, I think I"ll look into it!!!!!! :)

:lol: Some friends and I have discussed inventing an Electronic Device Blocker Kit for Breakups - this is something you would install on every phone/cellphone/computer you own or access - any device which would allow you to contact your psycho ba$tard :angry: ex.....you'd install it for however long......friends also have to be in compliance and NEVER allow you to use THEIR devices for contact also. Good idea, eh? :lol: could we make millions?

To mark this big day for the students and the amount of work they have put into this section, I would ask everyone to please use as many frequency adverbs/expressions as possible in today's upcoming posts.

Okay....this will please you, I think..........

I have, and we have no idea why, added an -ly to my friend Karen's name since we were about 15.......so since then, I have never, not ONCE, called her Karen........it's always Karenly..... and she and her husband always ALWAYS called me Schmooz, until, as I think you all know, I got my celiac dx, and it has been Spruezie since then...........

so - Karenly means - "in a Karen manner" :lol: but we have no idea why............

oh, and it's pronounced with a lilt.......stressing last syllable and......with a slight questioning intonation.....

"kaaaren-LEE?" :lol:

SILLIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm back to the living!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :ecstaticface:

where IS everyone this morn????????????????????????????

Gah. Giving a big test today on adverbs of frequency - - horrid, boring stuff, and there are always SO many questions and problems.

I always get up at 6.30am, I usually 'snooze' the alarm once - frequently wishing I could stay in bed for hours more.

Often, the cats sleep on my bed, occasionally sleeping on my son's bed.

Sometimes I wake up fully refreshed and wide awake when the alarm goes off, but that rarely happens <_<

Hardly a day goes by without me wanting to have a daytime nap!!!

I could never be described as a night owl

How did I do Miss???? :lol:

Can you tell I'm tired (& cranky) :yawn:.....slight ennui this time of year............I think it's the lack of light......I'm going to resume taking me St John's Wort 'til the lighter days come

I saved son of silly from a scatalogical disaster today........the school were going to make him a toasted cheese sandwich (admittedly with gluten-free bread) but IN the breville iron they make all the gluten ones!!!!!!!! :o (it's ok isn't it??....we'll wipe off any crumbs!!!!)

Soooozie's no longer phloozie! Excellent - - and as a bonus, you've certainly dropped about five pounds .. . . . this will come back on when you drink a glass of water. <_<

so - Karenly means - "in a Karen manner" .. but we have no idea why............

oh, and it's pronounced with a lilt.......stressing last syllable and......with a slight questioning intonation.....

"kaaaren-LEE?"

:lol: This is terrific. . . . . ...but I cannot stop hearing it completely differently. I hear a strong stress on the first syllable, with a typical, gunshot-type English pronunciation - - NO lilt, just a fade into schwa. . .....

KAR - en - lee.........

:lol::lol: Stupendous ! A lovely new word.

i think we should apply this wordy horseplay (thank you, Nik) to all of the Psilly names that will take it, and add to our vocabulary....

SU - sie - ly

Pattily

Amandaly

Janetly

Judyly (hmmm. ..nope, too awkward. . . sorry, judy)

Sarah!!! so good to see you posting . . . and now I see you reading so I hope I catch you wif me question . . .

How soon did you (and yer son's teachers) start noticing a difference wif the Omega-3??

Oops, sorry I missed this last night! I was pretty sure I was seeing a difference in a week, but in two weeks there was no doubt in my mind! It was about the same time table for his teachers. I didn't say anything to his teachers ahead of time, or tell them about the Omega 3s... I just waited to see if they noticed any difference-- and they did, enough to mention it to me.

The brand I have been giving him is Nordic Naturals. I got it at Whole Foods, in the children's supplement section- about 13 bucks for 90 softgels. It's a blue and white bottle that says Children's DHA in rainbow colors. It has no gluten, milk, yeast, artificial colors or flavors.

Let me know what you think if you decide to try it out! :D

So good to hear from you, Sarah. Just a thought, but have you considered being a substitute teacher? My daughter's boyfriend was desperate for a job and applied in our school district and got accepted immediately........they are always needing subs. He hasn't gotten his degree yet, so the pay is not as much as someone with one. At least he's working.

Actually I have been thinking about that! I checked the requirements, and I already have enough credit hours. Something about never knowing when I'm going to be working puts me off, but I've been thinking I should do it anyway... quit being so chickenly. ;)

In the district where I worked, they call at around 6:15AM and you can always decline if you really can't work that day. It's pretty good money, too.

So nobody remembers Ned's Atomic Dustbin???

Knik's leaky faucet - hmmm post 2727 was today - any significance to 27?

It's 1264 away from your member # - anyone near &/or dear born in Dec '64?

Well, Ptaoughmghmnuss may get some answers at Mayo - - here's hopin', Ptaum!! :)

If one does not have medical insurance down there, does all testing, of all kinds, have to be paid for?

Mayo requires $525 upfront BEFORE even starting anything.

For double hernia surgery, I couldn't even write a check cheque. (Where's the trust??) Had to bring ....hmmm $1600? $1800? cashier's cheque.

Same doc, to RE-acquire CTscan Rx, needed cashier's cheque for THAT nearly-useless appt. ("Take metamucil every day & you'll be fine" he says :angry: )

Now, time for me to wax Nih-KER-ler-ly . ..

Ptaum, always needing morning coffee, usually starts a pot before even peeing (which, btw, tho TMI elsewhere, is far less frequently than in the past) but at times - I wouldn't say often - doesn't have enough filtered water ready, so occasionally has to wait for the drippity-drip filter pitcher to do its thing.

Sometimes - well, let's say rarely - Ptaum is *gasp* :o OUT of coffee!!!! :ph34r:

Can hardly (oops wrong usage) STAND that & will try to NEVER allow it again!!!!!!

I've been giving Ez 3 softgels, although the bottle says you can give 4. For 4 softgels, the total Omega 3s is 252 mg. Also 120 mg of Omega 9, and some Vitamins A, D, and E thrown in.

Which one is Smack? :lol: Your boy or your girl?

eta: I wasn't sure about dosage at first either-- the only reason I started out with 3 softgels, is because that's what our family doc said she gives her son. :rolleyes:

Janet! You must apologise to Sooozie, as she made up this language. For me, you should have written, "From time to time, I think about the kids' names, and frequently ponder changing them....Quisp and Quake would never have crossed me mind - - but I'm always wanting those names now!"

    • cyclinglady, I think Joseph is hoping to exclude celiac disease.   I feel for him, as I also had a hard time accepting my daughter's celiac.      I had this gene test done hoping our GI doctor made a terrible mistake.   But now I have triple prove that my daughter really does have it! I agree with you and others, that if biopsy confirmed celiac disease, you do have celiac disease. (But on occasion, doctors can be wrong, right?) However, I have a distant relative (not related by blood) who thought she had celiac diease for 10 years (no biopsy done), lived a strict gluten free life style, but still suffered from health issues, ended up in the mayo clinic, and found out that she did not have celiac.    She did not have the celiac gene.
    • Our doctor ordered the Prometheus Celiac Plus test for us.   It is some sort of in depth celiac blood test.   This test report showed  which celiac gene my daughter has.   I think you can ask your GI for a celiac blood test with EMA.   When I asked for the EMA test, we got this Celiac plus results back.   I believe Prometheus is the name of the lab. Our insurance paid for this test.   If your insurance won't pay for it, I know there is a lab in Colorado that offer this test for a few hundred bucks.   You have to google for it.   I forgot their name.
    • Why?  Some 35% of the population carries the genes that could develop into celiac disease.  But only a few actually develop it.  It is used to exclude celiac disease and not to diagnose it.  There are some outlier genes too that have been discovered recently, so the gene test is not perfect.   My daughter has tested negative on the antibodies test.  She will have to get retested in the future. But we will not get the gene test.  It may impact her ability to get life insurance or maybe even health!  Just something to consider.  
    • It will turn around, but it probably is going to take more time.  Yes, adhering to the gluten-free diet is critical,  but what doctors fail to tell you is that is can take time for antibodies to decrease.  For some it is a few weeks and for others months to years.   It sounds like you are doing everything right.  Remember, her gut is damaged and eating anything can hurt to digest.  You might consider taking her off dairy for a few weeks until you see improvement.  Then add back in starting with products with the least amount of lactose (e.g. yogurt). Many celiacs are temporarily lactose intolerant.  It might help with the nausea.   When I accidentally get exposed to gluten, I stick with soups and stews, even cooked fruit, like applesauce because it hurts to eat!   Are you sure the medication she is taking is gluten free?  Did you call and confirm with the manufacturer?  Did she have nausea befor she was diagnised?  The side effect of this medication is nausea.  Did the GI prescribe?   Hang in there!  
    • My 10 year old daughter has been on the gluten-free diet for 6 weeks, and she's feeling worse than before the diagnosis. She has very little appetite, has frequent nausea in the evening, and has lost a pound or two that she really can't afford to lose. Our whole household is gluten free except for a few prepackaged items kept in a different room, so I think there's very little chance of cross-contact. She has been put on cyproheptadine to increase appetite and is trying valiantly to eat more, but she's just not hungry and it's very stressful for her, and all of us. She's eating peanut butter, pediasure, avocado, cheese, meat, and all the other calorie-dense foods we can think of.  No oats, not too much processed food. Can anyone give us suggestions or hope that this will turn around?
