quick update on glen~

Just a quick update...

We should find out for sure on Monday, but at this point, the doctor strongly suspects that Glen has Celiac Disease. It is an autoimmune digestive disease that damages the small intestine in response to ingesting gluten.

While this would necessitate a huge change in eating habits and dietary lifestyle, I am supremely thankful that this is all it is. I didn't realize how stressed out I was getting about the whole thing, but I can tell you there are 7 other people in this house that are probably breathing a sigh of relief that I am not on edge anymore :o) Everyone was hiding from me last night!

Thanks again for your prayers, I really, really appreciate them. So does everyone else around here :o)

I have a friend who was diagnosed with celiac disease a few years ago. I'm sure she'd have lots of resources if you need them. Just let me know if you need to contact her. Her name is Julie also. And PRAISE GOD, by the way, that it is 'only' that.

So have you gotten a paper diagnosis to confirm what you already know yet? That is so frustrating sometimes. I am sorry I have been so out of pocket lately. The spring is a crazy time for us. Katie has got so much going on with 4-H and I have had 3 mtgs about Wes and blah blah blah. I am looking forward to summer vacation soooooooo much!

I love the name of your blog. Amen, sistah! ;-)

I'm also glad to read that you have a diagnosis for your husband - it's always good to be able to put a finger on the problem and helps in so many ways!

Welcome to the MOM Exercise Challenge!

Love,

"How can it be a large career to tell other people’s children about arithmetic, and a small career to tell one’s own children about the universe? How can it be broad to be the same thing to everyone, and narrow to be everything to someone? No; a woman’s function is laborious, but because it is gigantic, not because it is minute. I will pity Mrs. Jones for the hugeness of her task; I will never pity her for its smallness." ~GK Chesterton
