    To tell someone you believe in them is one of the strongest, most caring things you could say!

    Wow Melissa it’s great that you are so supportive of your Mom! I’m sure it means a lot to her that you are there to encourage her and help her with this new way of life. My kids are 11 and 16, and they have been so helpful to me. They have learned all about what gluten is and where it hides and they help me avoid it. Soon this new way of eating will seem second nature and much easier to do for your Mom!

    Melissa,
    You are a wonderfully supportive and loving daughter and please tell your Mom it gets better. Every day is a healing day.
    She can still cook and bake when she feels up to it–anything can be made GF. I promise it gets easier. Make sure a celiac-savvy doctor is doing follow-up care.

    If it helps any at all to hear this, I just returned from my checkup with my GI doctor.
    He has said all along that I was the worst celiac patient he has ever seen and that my recovery is simply remarkable. He calls me his celiac textbook –for the many symptoms it manifested in me and how it affected me from head to toe. My iron, folate,
    B-12, and D deficiencies have resolved, my thyroid functions normally, my liver enzymes are normal, blood glucose stable. My BP is back to normal after being very low for a long time. I take no medications and I have returned to the gym after being unable to do hardly anything without horrid pain. I still have pain, but it’s so much better. I was very ill for many years.

    (If you are not familiar with my story, it’s here somewhere. Look at “dedicated to the trendiest person alive” –so I don’t bore everyone with a rehash. :) . )LOL

    If I can rebound from the walking dead, she can heal, too!!!

    Best wishes to your Mom and give her a hug from me and tell her to hang in there!
