Urgent trip to Santa Rosa tomorrow - daughter's health.

Looks like mine will go out on Friday if the world doesn't end ;)

Told you I was pulling anchor, but wasn't thinking I'd be chasing Santa's Sleigh!

Hey guys,

Colleen has asked me to pass this along to you. She's not feeling well after her infusion. :( I told her we're all sending her love and prayers.

She said:.

" G, Maybe you could do me a favor if you didn't mind. I can't use my playbook because of light sensitivity, but maybe put on the christmas card thread that I love the cards I'm getting and thank you."

Oh, dear! I would have written something in the card if I had known!

I mailed the cards today. These are not really Xmas cards. These are prints of paintings by an artist that went to grade school with my oldest. I had to write a check to Elton John to get them. I thought they would be interesting, hope you like them.

for those on the Christmas Card exchange....with all craziness that has ensued since I returned to a vertical position - our family Christmas Cards have morphed into New Year's Greetings -- for my silly card exchange I purchased beautiful photos in the local country store near a the spot I chose to hike with one of my sons today -- hoping the good ol' USPS is fast and they reach you all quickly. My mail was under hold while I was gone -- looking forward its delivery tomorrow :)

    • Update: I have been taking Chanca Piedra (specifically, Royal Break-Stone, by Whole World Botanicals) on an empty stomach in the morning for the liver-gall bladder and surprisingly my lips are almost normal. I know the peeling lips may be caused by different issues but I hope this info helps someone.
    • Hi Cristiana, I'm so sorry that you are still not feeling well.  When do you go back to your Dr? I wish I could help more, but it's so hard to know what was what when I was on the PPI.  I was diagnosed with celiac and h. Pylori on the same day so I was already feeling awful.  Then I was put on 2 antibiotics with the  PPI.  I do remember feeling terribly nauseous, but just assumed it was the antibiotics.  When I started tapering, I still wasn't feeling well.  It really took months before I started to feel decent.  But I assume that it was the celiac. I really hope you start to see some improvement...((((hugs))))
    • @scorpio it has now been almost 2 years and I am curious if you ever found something that worked for you. My boyfriend suffers from EC as well and I am desperate to find a resolution for his sake. He's been dealing with it for over a year now and it is taking a toll on his work and social life.   Any updates would be helpful
    • I am going through the diagnosis stage as well. My family has strong history for celiac disease, and while I always had discomfort and other symptoms ( some of which i didnt know about) I wasn't tested until recently because I was DEATHLY afraid of needles. The results are highly positive but I am still getting a biopsy in early August. From what I have learned about it is that the endoscopy is beneficial to looking for not only signs of celiac but also other diseases that have similar symptoms to celiac. Because of your mixed result it wouldn't hurt to get a biopsy but it really is personal preference. I understand what you are going through and didn't like the idea much either but I really think it is something that can help you in the long run. P.S. There are lots of testing being done for new medications or other ways to "cure" celiac other than a gluten-free diet. It is my understanding that this can only be covered by insurance with a confirmed diagnosis (biopsy) but I don't need to get into that. The bottom line is that a biopsy is confirmatory especially since the doctors could see in the intestine, so to me, I feel better knowing that there's no chance of going gluten-free for nothing.
    • Hi Everyone!  Thank you for all your responses!  This site is so helpful and I appreciate everyone who replied to my post.   I was able to get an earlier appt with Maureen Leonard who was absolutely wonderful like you all said and after more testing and even a genetics test, my son now has a diagnosis of celiac disease.  He's been gluten free now for a few weeks.  He is doing very well on the diet so far.  He does seem to be sleeping better which was always a problem since he was an infant, so that is a good sign!  We test in 3 months and I hope that his iron levels go up.
