Eating Out

Five years ago, when we first went gluten free, the thing we missed the most was pizza.
It wasn't so much the taste, but that it's everywhere, all the time. It's the main food at every birthday party, every sporting event. A celebration food, if you will.

Tonight, we celebrated out with not just pizza, but ravioli as well. Gluten free, in a Three Brothers, with some good friends. We're grateful for expanded options, and the growth of society's understanding of celiac and gluten intolerance.


A New road

Pardon my absence. I had an outpatient procedure Monday that has left me basically useless for a week. I'm fine, however, and have been enjoying my husband waiting on us hand and foot.

In other news, I got the results of J's bloodwork, and he has 2 mrkers for celiac, whatever that means. The parasite tests aren't done yet, but he now has to see a pediatric GI, and then get MORE blood tests, and then a gluten-free diet, and then more tests to see if the gluten-free diet made a differnence.

So, I'm really glad we switched peds, and really glad that we're going to find SOMETHING out about all this. He's been doing pretty well, removed from the dairy, egg, nuts, fish and most soy and corn for about three weeks now. But still with a little of the mess.

So that's all the news. Hopefully my brain will work soon and I'll tell you all about our adventures in unschooling. Like how J got an agricultural/ nutrition lesson last night by shucking corn with Daddy. If I took a picture, it would have been a documented "class". Yay!
