    This is awesome news! Sometimes profound bumps in the road (like a diagnosis of cancer) have the ability to make one view an ordinary life as the extraordinary miracle that it actually is. Continued prayers for a speedy recovery.

    Been thinking about you both. So glad to hear the good news! On the mend is a great place to be. Cheers!!

  25. 25


    I am very moved to read this, and relieved. It is difficult enough when one person in a relationship/marriage has serious health struggles, but when both do it can be beyond overwhelming. But I can say from my own experience that patience can find the love that has been buried by the stress, and when that happens the bond grows closer than when it began. My heart goes out to both of you. I’ve always felt you are lucky to have her, and now I can say emphatically how lucky she is to have you.

    Question for Celiacs who are silent. So I’ve tried to keep my son safe from Gluten for the past 2 weeks ( biopsy results revealed CD). We order GF pizza today and half through the slice it ‘hits’ me that buffalo chicken could be breaded in regular bread/flower. I make my son drop it, start calling the place and sure enough – I was right. My son was devastated that I wouldn’t let him continue to eat it ( he is 12) and I felt like killing the person who took the order. He goes nuts because he feels just fine but now has to follow this diet. My question is: so he had a few bites of that ‘breaded chicken’. Now what? Does not completely cross out all the ‘good’ that we’ve done all this time? How does that work? A tiny crumb or two will continue to damage this stomach even if he has been so good for some time? I am so frustrated I begin to get paranoid….

    1. 30.1


      I am hardly a silent celiac,in any sense of the word, but I can answer you. :)

      No need to be paranoid. Ever.
      Okay, so you made a mistake. It’s okay. It doesn’t reset the clock so to speak, but you do want to avoid future glutenings. It does not damage his stomach, but the small intestine.

      I know it’s hard to get used to all of this, but you need to educate yourself and your son on CD so you both can be aware of where gluten may be found. It gets easier, I promise.

      You can still order the G F pizza, but make some buffalo strips up yourself with some Purdue GF or Ian’s GF or Applegate Farms GF chicken tenders and buffalo sauce. Keep them in the freezer and pop them on the pizza for your son.

      Stop worrying too much. That won’t do either of you any good. :)

      Get the book Real Life With Celiac Disease by Melinda Dennis and Daniel Leffler. Anything you could possibly want to know is in that book. Relax, mom…It’s okay….and have a good Labor day!

      1. 30.1.1


        P S. That “GF” pizza IS coming from a place that has a dedicated oven and peel, right? The pizza shell is made in a separate space too, right? because it’s not really GF if they are sharing all those things.

    That’s GREAT news!!! So glad she’s doing better!! :D
