I swear I'm worrying more about the food than anything else (okay, not true, I'm terrified of the pain). I guess I can have DH bring me something from the freezer and I can get someone to microwave it for me.
Hugs. Keeping you in my thoughts!

I think you'll need more food for three days.
I have Arnica gel for my back, and homeopathic Arnica drops as well. I'd forgotten about them though. Thanks!!

You have your custom pain meds, right?
We will all be thinking of and praying for you.
I have the custom pain meds but I can't use them for 5 days before/after surgery because it's got an NSAID in there and I can't have any anti-inflammatories because of possible bleeding issues. But I'll be using them after that, I'm sure!!

I'm hoping I can do fruits, vegetables, and maybe some hard boiled eggs or something at the hospital. I'll have DH bring me food each night.

My mother went to King Arthur last week when she was in VT. She got me a gluten free cake enhancer (rice starch and corn-free emulsifier). And just so you know, their xanthan gum for their gluten free line is corn free too!! I might have to try those mixes one of these days.

No worries, I knew what meant. That said, DS hasn't mentioned eating the pizza there and seems to intend to eat mine. If he doesn't ask, that's what we'll do, and then he'll only have some fresh tomato (took less than a whole tomato do the whole pizza!) and cheese, no other possible allergens.

I don't know. Call and ask. They were very helpful when I called.

That beeswax looks fun! DS sold me all his candy and used the money he earned ($6.50! lol) to buy a fun toy at Target today. He chose to keep a few pieces, including a couple starburst candies. He spent the morning rolling and molding them like clay. Poor kid really misses playdough.

Sals have been an interesting experiment so far. We're not avoiding them completely, especially with the candy influx this weekend and we keep "accidentally" giving him sals, or he insists on eating something I've told him not to. But I *think* I see improvements just cutting them way down. He drank some apple juice last night and an apple this morning and had a very negative emotional reaction.

I talked to him about how the apple this morning and the juice last night made him feel and he decided that he's "allergic" to apples... not quite right, but if it keeps him somewhat compliant I'm happy.

I'll keep out the dairy for the remainder of the week, I think, but I don't think I'm seeing anything change.
Doesn't dairy take 2-3 weeks to get completely out of your system?

Does your family have any history of night-wetting? There's a hormone responsible for concentrating urine while you sleep, and apparently some kids just don't make enough. Of course you probably already know this and there's really a nutritional basis.

Anyway, both of my sisters and a few of my nieces and nephews were night-wetters until very late childhood.

Yay! I get excited about glasses. I'm a dork like that.

Ooh I've got to try this if I can get DS to agree to a bath when he's in his mood. How much bs do you use?

It was my son's first time tonight, and it was the cutest sight EVER - the sweet way he said trick or treat, thank you and bye - adorable!
I officially love ToT as of yesterday. My kids are old enough now that they totally "get it" including all the etiquette. They were so cute knocking on all the doors and shouting "Trick or Treat!" then politely thanking everyone.

We told them the "sugar sprite" was coming and would take their candy and leave them a small prize, or they could "sell it" to me for .25 per "safe" piece (after I took out all the non-gf stuff.) DS1 chose to sell it, but DS2 chose to leave his candy out for the sprite and was very happy this morning to find his "purprise" waiting for him. I was VERY happy not having endless days of sugar-induced craziness around here. (They also could have chosen to keep their safe candy but I didn't exactly encourage that option lol.)

tsfairy--you saw November's thread, right? For you and anyone else new, we (usually JR) start a new thread each month, if JR is really on the ball it's actually on the 1st. I think we got to the 4th once without any of us noticing it was a new month yet.
