I would love to do that! I want to meet all of my psillies!

Love,

Loey :wub: :wub: :wub:

Wouldn't it be great if we could all take a cruise together? We took a cruise to Alaska before I got sick. I'm determined to come back fighting with a vengence and be stronger than ever!!!! I want to meet all of you psilly people in person.

BTW, I'll be in NJ either the weekend of January 19th or the following weekend. I'm throwing a big party for Rob's 50th, Tony's 21st and me being alive. It will be at Romeo's pizzeria in Plainsboro NJ. Anyone who can make it let me know. Plainsboro is next to Princeton. And yes they have gluten-free pizza & Pasta. It' my last big splurge with my inheritance from my 1st husband's mother. After that I have to buckle down.

OK, rather stay on forum and I might be back but the withdrawal is pretty awful. I have 327 emails to go through. I'll probably do more Xmas/Chanukah shopping. Buying Tony gifts for his trip to Israel. He'll be home Thursday and leave Sunday for 10 days. I'm gving him prayers for the wall and they'll be one for all of you.

Love,

Loey

A racing sailboat, the name Nizam she bore

With owner/skipper 'Hargie' and a crew of four.

The boat was fast, the crew were 'ept'

And other boats in her wake she left.

Forty knots of wind, no big deal,

Up on the rail, guys, she's got too much heel.

So those were the sailing days of yore

And one of the crew was my ex-brother-in-law.

But her glory has faded, her crew have too!

And the time has come to say adieu.

Hargie went first, because he was the oldest

Struck down in October last;

Alllan came next, although always the boldest,

His service was the Friday just past.

Neice Jane said to her navigator dad

Come to the funeral and don't be sad

But dad said I'll soon be attending my own

And so be it, this Friday - his spirit has flown!

A proud, bold crew who hung together

And intent on joining each other forever.

RIP Jim.

silly pages is better format for chat...the new chat has too many folks looking for celiac disease info

Yep, just a little organization is needed so we don't have five different conversations interspersed amongst each other. (like I just did before I corrected - you can quickly lose the context). But then, maybe we is too old; however, methinks, with feets like dat, Bunnie is barely hatched. :D

Thanks for all your sympathies. It's funny, it has affected me in ways I did not ever contemplate. I never tried to write a poem for someone before :wacko: I just hope they all get to go sailing together again :rolleyes::)

Jack-e if you are still hanging in yhe sillies -- very sorry for your loss too. Peter shared the wonderful service your Dad planned -- must have been one special man.

He was a good Dad. He taught us a love of reading which is something we'll always have as a reminder of him. He also taught me how to be financially responsible and he gave my brother an unbeknownst lead in to one of the best lines ever.

And here is the story that goes with the line: When we were younger my parents would rent a cottage for 2-3 weeks in Hastings. The cottage was very basic. Electricity but no running water or heat. If we needed water we went down to the Trent River to get some or the well for drinking water. If you needed heat late in the evenings you used the wood stove. One year we forgot flashlights. We needed river water and it was after sunset. My mom asked someone to get some and Dad said he'd get it cause he knew the layout of the docks and such. Time passed and Dad came back up to the back door and asked my Mom to open the door and put some papers down on the floor. Mom asked 'What happened'. Dad replied 'I walked into the river'. Nobody said a word except my brother. My brother being who he is and was said 'What did you do Dad forget your Jesus Boots' It still something I can vividly see and hear after 35+years.

JACQUIE'S GOT BALLS! :huh:

... . .Hmmm...those look rather like POeter's balls....

My lips are sealed on that one :D

    • Most (90%-95%) patients with celiac disease have 1 or 2 copies of HLA-DQ2 haplotype (see below), while the remainder have HLA-DQ8 haplotype. Rare exceptions to these associations have been occasionally seen. In 1 study of celiac disease, only 0.7% of patients with celiac disease lacked the HLA alleles mentioned above. Results are reported as permissive, nonpermissive, or equivocal gene pairs. From: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/88906  
    • This is not quite as cut & dried as it sounds. Although rare, there are diagnosed celiacs who do not have either of those genes. Ravenwoodglass, who posted above, is one of those people. I think she has double DQ9 genes? Am I right Raven?  My point is, that getting the gene testing is not an absolute determination either way.
    • Why yes it is! jmg and myself are NCIS, I mean NCGS specialist/experts or is it NCGI people ourselves. posterboy,
    • LilyR, jmg has given you good resources/links. I used to have constant issues with ear infections that went away when I went gluten free. And recurrent bronchitis they I never have now. NCGS can cause low grade inflammation that you don't realize at the time . .. till you stop eating gluten. That said have you been checked for a UTI infection.  It is not uncommon to have low grade fevers when you have one. My friend at work recently had a bad spell of health and the only symptom she complained about before coming down with a bird flu virus was a low grade persistent fever (not for a few months but for a few years). The last time I had bronchitis before it became pneumonia I had a low grade fever in the few months before my pneumonia diagnosis. Keep looking is my advice to you.  Low grade fevers are fighting off an infection . .  sometimes we don't know why until other symptom's present themselves. I do know that when I went gluten free most of my chronic health issues got better.  I can only assume it (gluten) was triggering inflammation in my body. I hope you find out what is the cause of your fever and that being gluten free helps it. ****** this is not medical advice just some of the ways going gluten free helped me and some possible other causes of a low grade fever that have happened to myself or others that I know of. posterboy,
    • "If the biopsy is negative, then is there another test that can be done to make sure I really don't have celiac? " Yes, we can do a genetic testing for the celiac gene, I think it is the DQ2 and DQ8 gene, and maybe one other.   If you don't have one of these genes, I was told that you can not have Celiac.   See if your insurance will pay for one of this test.   If not, I think you can pay out of pocket for about $300.
