Death Of Mother

Hello

As many of you have noticed I have not been posting much here for about 6 months. My mother was very ill & sadly she has passed away at her home (her wish) on Nov.22 2010. I know she is in eternal life with all her departed love & her Lord... she is where no illness, no pain , no sadness can hurt her ever again. I am thankful I was able to take loving care of her for the last 6 months.

My heart aches for me but I know she is in God's keeping.

blessings

It's a big change losing a father or mother. They guide us in so many things and in some ways we don't even understand until later. I am sorry for your loss but I agree she is in a better place and probably happy as a clam. That doesn't make the missing of her in your day to day life less important, or less noticeable, but she would probably want you to cheer up fairly soon. But grieving is a normal thing, and we all go through it.

I think this verse is a real hopeful thing to look forward too.

'Romans 8-36 to 39.

36As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. 37Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. 38For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

I"m sorry for your loss, MamaW. You are right, she is now free of illness, pain and sadness and has moved to a beautiful place of peace and joy. Nevertheless, it is still painful for those of us still here as we miss the physical presence of our loved ones.

My thoughts and prayers are with you.

    • I am going to Mass General in Boston to rule out celiac. I picked it because one of the docs is a lead researcher and it is a 5.5 hour drive. Plus they did a virtual visit with me which was great.  Admittedly, my first actual visit was short and it felt like a long haul for a quick 20 minutes. I spent about $250 on hotel, gas, food and tolls. I stayed right outside of Boston and booked the MGH rate. I am looking at other options if I go again.  I was gluten free at the time so there was not a lot to do at the appointment. My insurance also would not pick up $125 of the visit for some reason.  I cannot give you an overall about time, money etc. as I am still waiting to hear if we are doing another endoscopy. I am hoping they rule it in or out as it has been unofficially diagnosed by two local docs and it is starting to get very frustrating for me as others say it is not celiac and I still feel badly. I do really like the nurse who calls me. She is very receptive.  I can keep you posted! I also looked at Columbia as I live in NY but they did not accept my insurance and Boston is actually just as easy of a drive for me. 
    • We did some upgrade work today, please report any issues.
    • Hi Kathleen, There is a standard called the Marsh Scale that is used to rate the various levels of damage to the gut.  While the lighter damage levels might not show up to the naked eye, the worst damage levels are obviously visible.  The worst levels result in what the call "scalloping" referring to the appearance of the gut lining. Isn't this great, you are learning new stuff already! Welcome to the forum Kathleen!
    • Do not worry.  Didn't you say you talked to a nurse?  She might not even know the procedure for obtaining biopsies for celiac disease.  She might just be thinking endoscopy.  She might even be new to the practice.  Who knows?  Print off the U of Chicago's info and call or email tomorrow with your questions.  If you do not get an answer, then talk to the GI when you see him on Friday. But you need the biopsies.  Villi damage is too small to see!  There are some other signs....but biopsies are key.  
    • I take Jarrow Probiotics and eat coconut yogurt daily. For vitamins I use Liquid health, they have them in liquid form you just measure into a glass of tea or juice and drink it.....BIG deal for me since I already take 4-9pills with each meal.
