They hype it up so much on TV that I almost get tired of watching even before it's begun. But having a couple friends over for a pot luck to watch the opening ceremonies. Wonder if they can top China? :rolleyes:

I love the stadium jumping and Dressage stuff.

One of the swimmers, Dana Vollmer is Gluten Intolerant! They did a little news blurb about it after she won her gold medal.

This is the video link to the CNN story. I thought it was really cool. Gives me hope I might be able to run again some day.

I am suffering from Olympic fatigue......I am glued to the set and need this to end so I can get some sleep! :lol:

I love it all but I have to admit China did a better job with the opening ceremonies. I love London and the UK but it was more like a Hollywood production and soon got boring. You just cannot beat what China did with the movement all of those people lined up and synchronized! It was so different than anything else done so far.

    • Thanks for the welcome. Endoscopy results came in the morning confirming Celiac, but they also found cells called Eosinophils which apparently has something to do with white blood cells. They want to do another scope in 8 weeks to see if they're still there.
    • Oh. Please get a referral to a large teaching hospital. The specialists there will give you answers.  Take care.

    • I forgot to add that I have also had an intermittent dry mouth and coated tongue.
    • I have been having a number of very strange symptoms for the past 7 weeks. It started with upper abdominal pains and discomfort that radiate to the back and sides. I then developed a light-headedness and frequent headaches. I have been having problems concentrating along with brain fog. However sometimes the head symptoms ease but then come back a few days later. My stools have not been right either. Some days they float and appear to have undigested food in them and are generally light in colour. I have also been very tired lately and my legs have been aching and have had some sharp pains in feet and hands. What is perhaps concerning me most is that I seem to be losing subcutaneous fat - my arms are very thin and bony and I am developing depressions on the sides of my thighs. I have had loads of blood tests; liver, kidney function and glucose were all normal. I have also had an MRI and my pancreatic functions and gall bladder were also normal. I have just had some more tests back for thyroid which once again was normal. I am getting increasingly concerned and am desperate for a diagnosis. I only thought of celiacs as my grandmother had it and when I looked up symptoms there were some matches. Does this sound like celiacs? This is literally the only thing that hasn't been ruled out. I am 18 years old and male. Thanks.
