So i discovered a way to remove dark spots from my stainless steel silverware. I thought i could no longer use it due to it, and when my last spot free spoon became spotted, I decided to look it up. Apparently, if you make a paste with water and baking soda it removes them.

 

After a good hand washing, they (aka test spoon) look as good as new.

Hmmmm....

 

Patteigh is leaking (not my fault......anybody had a phlipover?)

Bughnee is bangin' Yeti

Emmm is a disappointed phlasher 

 

I'm still suffering the side effects of pneumonia. Better, but still tired. Gotta get a new chest x-ray in a couple of weeks.

 

And now the good news....

 

 

HAROLD IS GONE!!!!!!!!! :D

 

 

Let me explain.....( and I will start from the beginning for all the newer psillies).....I'll try to keep it as brief as possible

 

Four years ago this month my son came down with leukemia. It was soon realized that he also had a growth at his brain stem of unknown origin that was in danger of bursting.

 

I flew down to Houston to be with him and my husband rode his motorcycle down. <_< (I told him not to....I had a bad feeling)

 

(Now, I must add this part to give you the full effect of this life-changing event in our lives)......When he arrived in Houston, he was in an accident and lost his right leg below the knee. :o  I left my sons hospital to be with my husband at his hospital, returning a couple days later to find my son in a coma, which lasted 18 days. We almost lost my son during that time. :(

 

The doctors couldn't test the growth for fear of killing him so they couldn't find out what caused it. :unsure: They bombarded him with antibiotics, and either that or the chemo slowly shrunk the growth.....named Harold. :rolleyes:  It has still been around as a small, insignificant lesion since then. But now it is entirely gone. B)

 

My son went into remission near the end of that same year, but his numbers still have not been completely normal.

 

Well....his platelets are still a little low, but his white blood cell count is normal for the first time. ^_^

 

 

And then there's Harold..........farewell :)

    • I've had them about six or seven times at several different Starbucks locations.  My sister has, also.  Neither one of us have had any signs of getting glutened. They are served in a parchment paper bag that should be handed to you straight from the oven sealed.  I've heard many internet complaints about the bags being dusty, too many ingredients, unhealthy, etc., but honestly, they are pretty darned tasty! And, when you are traveling and hungry, they are even tastier.  They sell out quickly at most Starbucks, but I've been able to purchase one as late at 6 p.m.  
    • I wish they didn't use " gluten" as a headline.  People abuse and starve children for a variety of " reasons".  gluten-free was just one they picked, it could have been paleo or kosher or whatever... 
    • Ugh!  This again..... first ...it was one person...not a study... just someone's speculation. if I am remembering correctly - no one actually tested the retainer. The kid was a 12-16 yr old an drew could have gotten caught eating gluten, etc, etc, etc.   And then those internet folks who love to spread " bad news" or  use that stuff to further their purpose, jumped on it.  And then let's talk to a chemist or plastic scientist - if the plastic leaches our actual proteins, like gluten, wouldn't the plastic piece break down after a while? welcome to the world of Celiac internet myths.   adding - none of the Celiac Centers, Associations, etc have warned people not to use a retainers.
    • Ok, so, here goes. Today I had my teeth cleaned, and this was my first time there since I've been diagnosed. I double checked that their tooth polish is gluten free, and they told me it's safe. I feel fine. Tonight I was at Walmart looking at buying some mouth wash (I was scolded, as per usual), and I Googled gluten free mouth wash. I stumbled upon an article about gluten free products and dental stuff. The person mentioned a study that was released stating that a child's retainer was making her sick because it contained gluten - in the plastic. I had braces when I was a teenager and had them out about 12 years ago. I got one of those old school retainers. The kind with the plastic part for the roof of your mouth and the metal wire that goes around the front. It's cuuuuute. Let me tell you. Anyway, I decided to delve into this more, because I don't know if my retainer is safe now. I found an old thread on here where it looks like people were debating this, and for the most part, seasoned Celiac's agree that it's a bunch of bunk.  Do people have opinions? I know that many of you do a great deal of research into Celiac and that you may have some information. I'm looking for real science - not fear tactics. I wear my retainer religiously, My mom paid almost $5,000 for my teeth to look like they do, and I'm not about to let them get shnaggled again. I'm 29, but they still move if I don't wear my retainer. I've been debating getting a new one - one of the plastic ones that you can't really see, but I don't want to shell out the dough for that until I have to. I'm shocked mine has held up as long as it has.  When I was diagnosed back in November my TTG was >100. Two months later it was 12. So I assume that my little retainer isn't causing much damage, as that's pretty significant. I have to go back in July to have my blood tested again. In the meantime, is this something to stew over? I have no idea where my retainer was made, or who made it. It was a long time ago and I bet if I called my orthodontist to find out who the manufacturer was they wouldn't be able to tell me. Maybe I'm wrong. It was 2004 or 2005, so I'm assuming they won't know at this point. But I could check if people think I should. I feel fine, for the most part. But I was a silent Celiac when I was diagnosed so I don't trust my body to not tell me if I'm being glutened. I'll just say that.  Thanks!
    • They are awesome! But they are not available at Starbucks at some places--like hospitals. Pity!
