Oh, it definitely struck me as very odd! It also says "no significant increase in intraepithelial lymphocytes". That's their favorite word I guess!
My blood work pre-biopsy also showed increase lymphocytes and my primary doctor said it usually means increased inflammation.
Doing all the things I can now---filing a complaint, I've emailed my doctors to tell them I'm upset and don't think I received proper care, I'm in the process of trying to see a naturopath that diagnosed a friend of a friend w celiac. I'm going to see if i can get the other blood work done with them---and I've been gluten free for a week and a half!
Some of take longer to heal. Cut yourself some slack. A busy working mother with small children is both rewarding and taxing!
You know what I asked for on Mother's Day? No cooking, food prep, or cleaning. I do not want to go out (just too busy of a day for most restaurants and my fav gluten-free restaurants are a state away). I just want to take care of myself and not others. I guess I have had a history of ditching my responsibilities on Mother's Day. My SIL would watch the baby at her mother's house (with my hubby) and I would ride my bike to the beach, order a coffee and read!!!!). I celebrated Mother's Day on Saturday with my Mom. When my daughter was old enough to want to make me breakfast, I opted for lunch after my bike ride and coffee.
Hang in there!
