That's hilarious about DS1.

But I am feeling your pain on the rest of it... must be one of those days. We had major toddler drama over here this morning, and DD hasn't slept much the last 2 nights. The sight of major ear wax today confirmed we are indeed having a reaction. I'm almost positive (because of the timing of symptoms) it's xcon on our meat.

I'm pretty sure that deditus meant that cabbage doesn't bloom until the 2nd year. You will have heads of cabbage this year.

Yup on the cabbage. It'll grow a head this year--and then, "off with his head!"

MIL's angiogram? They found nothing. NOthing wrong with her heart at all. In other words, she is numbered among the 30% who didn't need the radioactive test. They need better diagnostics. I'm glad there was nothing there, but I'm frustrated that she had the angio in the first place.

Trialling ds and dd2 on raw cow's milk in hopes it'll help their teeth.

so I saw the functional medicine guy today. I won't clog up chat with the visit. I"ll resurrect my own thread. Let's just say it wasn't good.

On a more scientific note, I'm not only doing the Yasko gene panel but I'm also having testing done to see how screwed up my detoxification is. I've always wanted to take the mystery out of that.

It was funny b/c I asked him if he had heard of the Yasko panel & he hadn't so I showed him the information. Then he started talking about the different panels he does know about, including detox. So I asked him what sort of person he recommends it for and he says

1. Someone who is sicker than they should be at their given age - check
2. Someone with a big family history of cancer - check
3. Some other thing - check

At that point, I'm like, that's me. Why don't we do it? My mom gave me birthday money. I guess instead of getting a snappy camera I'll get some gene testing done. Happy Birthday to me!

Excellent choice of birthday presents. I still need to make some cookies that actually work for you to send for your birthday. And I have to make cookies tonight for DD2's preschool graduation tomorrow. At least I pawned off the meeting on Monday to someone else. There were supposed to be 40 women coming to my house on Monday for a dinner meeting. One less stress on my life. Going to see a breast specialist on Friday. One more stress.

Yay that you're able to get those tests! I want some birthday money, lol!

There was one glitch in MIL's procedure--when she was coming out of it, she had arrythmea (why can't I spell?) and they had to shock her heart to get it to beat correctly. So she's super sore. Scary.

This is so me.I'm so curious about my detoxification too but I know it's not good! I'm glad you are able to get this done. If you don't mind when you know what the tests are could you post them?

Yikes - Dannic, on your MIL's needed shock. How scary!

Okay, so I have to make cookies for 9:30am tomorrow (DD2's preschool graduation party, and the only food that will be safe for her of course). And I'm out of sorghum flour and buckwheat flour. All I've got is millet flour (which is pretty coarse), tapioca starch, and sweet potato flour. What can I make? I mean, it probably doesn't matter if it's cookies or something else - it's just supposed to be a "treat" but I can't for the life of me think of anything. And it's 10:20 and I'm exhausted today for some reason.

Kathy, my fallback is the flourless nut butter cookies--can your DD have/can you send in any sort of nut butter? And it uses eggs, or it seems like it should work with an egg sub.

Crazy productive day in the kitchen here, very weird. Not quite done yet (10:04 central time right now), need to pack kimchee into jars, finish reducing some chicken stock, pack up the huge batch of black bean chili (I think for me and the kids), finish prepping not-at-home lunch for tomorrow, and then run screaming from the pile of dishes. Oh, and finish separating the cracklins from the rendered lard. Yum, lard. Rendering tallow is not nearly so good-smelling.

My kitchen is small and hot. Argh. I was thrilled when, for a little bit today, outside apparently cooled off to 72F, I opened it all up and turned on fans and then turned on everything in my kitchen--oven is old, not well insulated, plus 3 burners on. Gah, I'm sweating like crazy.

So far, I don't feel odd or bad with the digestive enzymes. DH either. A bit confusing, but I guess good.

How long have you been taking them? I think it was late on day 2 DS started showing signs of reacting.

And aside from a little gassiness, I didn't associate any of my symptoms with the enzymes till Deb laid it all out in front of me.

Sigh. I ran out of enzymes, so used the soy lecithin ones a couple days ago. I think soy is one of my biggest trace offenders, but I'm not certain, so decide to trial it every once in a while. That night, dd and ds were both up, constantly. The good stuff was supposed to show up in the mail yesterday, but we had to leave before it got here. I ended up on non-pancreatin enzymes for breakfast (to avoid the soy) then no enzymes for lunch, then a double dose of the pancreatin - one while snacking before dinner, then again with dinner. Today, I woke up totally irritable (adrenal reaction) and in a major brain fog/overwhelmed/overstimulated mess. Dd's been quick to upset and hard to please all day long and ds has had his biggest bloody poop yet So what did we do? Go out to eat for dinner with my mom and the ILs. And it's only Tuesday. I'm so sick of reactions, and I'm so close, but such a mess right now. Blah.

On the fun side, I've been going ferment crazy I've got apple nut chutney almost done, ketchup, mustard, and a yum yum yummy raisin chutney. On tap for tomorrow is apple beet relish and pineapple mango chutney.

1.5 days worth of them so far. One meal less for DH.

Well, we'll see how the next couple days go. I may be nuts for suddenly fiddling with pills right before our long trip, but hey, makes life interesting, right?

I think I've missed a lot of posts, the thread's gone pretty fast, and I know I've been distracted by my IRL life. I'd say, if anyone has something that got overlooked, might want to re-ask.

I know it never feels fast enough, but it does sound like you're making progress. But I'm sorry trace soy does that, that's annoying to need to avoid.

http://www.dramyyasko.com/assets/pre..._Breakdown.pdf

Is there anything on page 14 that helps bridge the gap between 23andme's notation and Yasko's? She lists letters in addition to +/- stuff for some mutations, but I'm not sure if that's what you need.

I'm up too late, again, but I got a ton done in the kitchen. And yet I still have to cook breakfast in the morning. Boo. Leftovers would be better.

Hope everyone is having/had a peaceful night.

It's a nut-free school, and she can only do eggs on rotation now and today isn't the day. I guess I'll try to use the millet flour since that's all I've got. There'll be 3-gluten free people (besides us) there so I was planning on something good. Great time to run out of everything!

The Yasko test is this:

The detox test is this:

Is that the information you wanted?

You can make thumbprint cookies without eggs or nuts. My gran used to use sparkling/decorating sugar or chopped sunflower seeds on the top instead of coconut sometimes and my mom used crushed corn flakes (I know that's not an option, just saying). Just need some safe jelly or chocolate, or even just icing for putting in the middle thumbprint.

Started taking my thyroid meds morning and night instead of just morning now, as well as having them increased. Hoping that will help some with my morning doziness (sitting on the couch with my head bobbing as I fight sleep, too tired to actually get up and do anything like... get a bowl of cereal).

Yes - Today Scout's daycare teacher said, and I quote: "You know, she has been sleeping really weird at nap time. Stirring a lot. Moaning. Snorting." Totally confirms that she IS having problems during the day and others are noticing. It sucks that she is, but I get sick of everyone transmitting through their body language that it is all in my head - she seems perfectly fine to them. Well, screw you people - you aren't the ones who haven't slept in 18 months.

Was talking to my cousin who has Celiac and she said wouldn't it be nice if it was just Celiac so I could add soy and corn back into her diet. But honestly, after all I have learned about GMOs - I don't want to add soy and corn back in. I am steering clear of gmos. And HFCS.

Funny story though about your ds and his friend. But you know, I do wonder if more stuff than the average person realize are food related. I was stunned to discover that my 7 year old was a lot less moodier when I took gluten out of her diet.

Hugs to all,
Karen

I think tons of people have food issues they don't know about.
Chocolate chip cookies - used millet flour (plus sweet potato flour and tapioca starch). They were good, spread a little more than usual, but I actually like the texture better. More like regular chocolate chip cookies, less like sugar cookies. The guy that we just found out was gluten free a couple months ago (a dad) was so happy to see a plate of brownies (someone else) and cookies that were labeled gluten free. I gave him a couple to take home (he said, "but I already ate 3"). He reminds me of Richard Gere in Pretty Women. Whoops - did I say that? hee hee G can't wait for her doctor's appt this afternoon (osteo) so she can give blood. I have one who can't wait, and the other one freaks out at a needle. I'm hoping he can do something about her palate (which needs widening) and help her digestion. I'm wondering whether to ask for a Genova stool test for her too. With other stuff of mine coming up, not sure how we're paying for everything. Osteo's stuff isn't covered by insurance. My stuff will once I hit the deductible (high). I guess DH's new used car is going on the waiting list.

Health goes before new cars. Although my dh would probably never agree with that.

Feeling stuck. I know it'll clear up and I've seen (tiny) windows of feeling really good, but man oh man do I feel overconstrained (for my engineer mamas ) and like it's an impossible puzzle to get out of. I swapped milk sides for dd and ds, which seems to be helping ds's head but now dd's razor sharp teeth (yay ecc and mainstream pedi dentists ) are hurting the non-broken-in side. When I tell her it hurts and to fix her latch, she explains to me how it really really DOESN'T hurt. And then she sulks.

What's the pathway for major overstimulation? GABA? I don't want that one to help. GABAs not supposed to cross the blood brain barrier. What's the nutrient support?

Had a very vivid dream last night that all my family except me tested positive for celiac. I need to get a life!!
