    Gluten Dude—This story made me cry. And as I have said before, I am as romantic and sentimental as The Grumpy Cat. Children are so resilient. And when they are loved deeply, well even more so. This story comes at a time in my life where I am now worried for my grown children as well as my grandchildren. My little grandson Roland may be developing Celiac disease. He has so many stomach upsets and gets sick and fatigued when he eats bread. At least now I know and everyone can look out for it. Again, thank you for this very touching story.

    Thank you for sharing your letter to Luke with us. I can only imagine how frightening it was to watch your babe going through all that. I was scared when it happened to me and I’m a grown up.

    Even though this little man had a rough start, he will have a long and healthy life ahead of him, thanks to you. You’re a wonderful Mom!

    Those of us who had a long- delayed diagnosis have developed so many other problems as a result, but he can start with a clean slate, so to speak. In this regard, yes, the early diagnosis is a gift..

    Please tell Luke that he should never want to be like everyone else because why be normal, when he is extraordinary! Please tell him I think he rocks! ;) He’s a celiac warrior.
