It has been confirmed

My son does have Celiac Disease.  So now we start....the Gluten free eating.  Besides being a picky eater my son also has peanut, nut, egg and mustard allergies.  So....this is going to be a challenge for me.  Luckily he has told me he is okay with trying new things. I almost had a mishap last night.  I decided I would bake some chicken with a gluten free flour on my sons pieces.  I coated one and it dawned on me I had not even looked at the rest of the ingredients.Thank goodness I caught myself because this flour also had a statement on it "May contain peanuts"! Yikes...I was so worried about the gluten free that I forgot to look for the other allergy information.  In the past my son would not touch baked chicken unless it was chicken nuggets or chicken strips BUT......he liked it.  Wish me luck as we venture into the gluten free world.

A New Week

My son made it through his procedure last Friday and now we await the results.  A new week begins and Spring Break is over for my son....was not much of a Spring Break as he had doctor appointments, ortho appointments,  band practice, golf and surgery.  Now its time for me to regroup and get busy Spring Cleaning!

Well Wishes

If you saw my post from a few weeks ago you know my son was recently diagnosed with Celiac Disease.  After seeing the specialist it was decided he needed to have an Endoscopy done to take a biopsy.  The blood test came back positive for Celiac and the Endoscopy will ensure this is what he does have.  I don't really understand some of it but he will undergo this procedure on Friday.  As a mother it breaks my heart that he has to undergo this procedure and that he has been diagnosed with this disease. I am praying everything goes well during this procedure.  In the meantime  I am a nervous wreck!!

It's Here

Yes.....Spring officially arrived this past Sunday.  Although we have had rain here in Southern California the last couple days I know it won't last and the sun will be shining bright soon.  And even though the sun is not shining I can hear the birds chirping and the flowers are blooming. 
Hope your Spring is off to a good start.

Problem Solved

I am not quite sure what happened to my google account but the last few days I have not been able to log in, upload photos or make a new post.  Technology is wonderful until you have difficulties.  I am persistant and finally figured the problem out.  Hope you are all having a wonderful Monday.

Difficulties

I have had no problem in the past uploading photos into my blog.  But....I tried yesterday and now it will not let me upload any photo unless I open a Google Account??  Why is this.  Is anyone else experiencing this problem?  Technology....it can be stressful at times.

Chilly Weather, Hail and a Krumb Cake



This past weekend we had a storm roll in.  The weather was was wet, cold and not a good day to be out shopping like I was.  That evening I heard heavy rain which soon turned to heavy hail.  It was coming down pretty good.  My son and I ran out onto the back patio to capture the sight. 
It felt alot cooler than 40 degrees outside.  It was 10:00pm when the hail started.
