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 :)

    • My son is 5 and his symptoms are all behavioral and neurological. If he eats a few pretzels he will develop something called a stereotypy where his fingers become sort of stuck in distorted positions for days. If he eats gluten he also experiences auditory and visual hallucinations, insomnia, loss of balance and fine motor, periods of confusion (doesn't know where he is), dialated pupils, chronic post nasal drip, keratosis pilaris covering torso, extreme behavioral issues, constipation and bloating. We've been to 3 neurologists, 2 allergists, an endocrinologist, psychological, psychiatrist, dermatologist,  infectious disease specialist and soon will see a gastroenterologist. He's tested negative for celiac and doesn't have the gene which would indicate gluten as an issue for him. Despite these facts, we entirely removed gluten and dairy from his diet and he is a normal happy playful child again, living the life he should be living.  He's had a few instances of dietary mishaps at school which were difficult to recover from. We implemented the AIP diet which for us included no grains (no corn, rice or quinoa), no dairy, no legumes (especially soy), no eggs and limited nightshades. Basically, we have been eating only vegetables, fruits, meats and nuts. Nothing processed. It works. Now we are at the point of adding things back into his diet and it's going well. We've determined that he's sensitive to a particular baking mix brand called Simple Mills. So there are only two possibilities to this a) Simple Mills brand isn't as gluten free as it needs to be or b)my son is actually sensitive to baking soda.  I also think he might be dealing with intestinal permeability or "leaky gut". I've been reading about a protein called zonulin and I question whether that could be a potential biomarker in our case. Prayers for your daughter. If you think it's a dietary trigger then you are right and I encourage you to never give up. You will find an answer if you keep looking. I promise.  
    • Well.... it can be... the plastic lid on the lovely chicken salad you brought for lunch sticks, you pull too hard and it, and half your salad going flying all over the company computer?  
    • @cyclinglady I heard that there were problems with Armour Thyroid when it came to gluten a few years ago. I thought it was no longer safe? @MegamaniacI had forgot to put that in my original post that I have a lot of issues with anxiety as well. I've never actually been officially diagnosed with a type of depression/anxiety/etc, but I've had problems with that ever since I was pretty young (I think before puberty). I'm sorry to hear about your medical field experience. I've actively sought out doctors (and got lucky having a great primary dr) over the past few years since very few seem to know much about it. The fact that a doctor would laugh at a patient for anything is pretty infuriating. Sorry to hear that. I went to a gastro that barely listened to a word I was saying and only offered a short term "solution" so I never went back to him.
    • He left a voicemail (which I was really thankful for bc it is SO hard to get ahold of someone) and said the celiac panel came back positive and told me to start a gluten free diet and asked me to call him. He said he was going to set me up with a nutritionist. I will definitely check out the newbie page. I am in the navy and I'm pretty sure I get kicked out for this. The first grocery trip was pretty difficult for me. I almost cried thinking about how different my life will be. Thanks for the support everyone ! 
    • No I don't know what that is.  The school's been understanding but I just can't have her hurting the other kids were attacking the principal so I've decided to keep her home until she starts acting normal again.   She has not been officially diagnosed with celiacs we have an appointment soon.  She is allergic to gluten wheat and milk.  It seems like the gluten or the wheat affect her mood greatly.
