Fall Happenings

I can not believe that in a few short weeks my little boy will be three years old! Things have been busy around here as we prepare for his party and a visit from Grandma (my mom). She will be flying out on November 3rd and I can't wait. I haven't seen her since May so a visit feels far overdue.

I also wanted to give an update on a couple of things.  We found out a few weeks ago that W tested positive for Celiac in the tTG-IgA blood screening. We have a follow up appointment in early December with a Paediatric Gastroenterologist.  Until then, we are to continue giving him a normal diet with gluten.  Jay will also be tested early next week as we suspect there is a chance he could also test positive.  The odds of a false positive for a toddler are fairly rare but the gold standard for diagnosis is a biopsy. I am not thinking about that right now and will deal with it as it comes.

But, guess what! Weston is having such great success on the potty! His lactulose combined with daily Lansoyl seems to have been a magic potion for us. Thank goodness.  If you want to know more about how thing are going feel free to send me an email.

In lighter news, I have been taking part in a one-month HIIT challenge and have to date completed 10 of the 12 classes required to finish the challenge! Exercise is helping me focus and forget about all this other stuff at the same time.

I also saw a new physio who gave me some new exercises to work on my glutes.  On a positive note, when he tested my strength I was much stronger! I have come terms with the fact that tendonitis is just going to cause pain.  He told me to try to stop thinking about it because sometimes that can make it worse. I laughed and asked if that meant I was imagining it (at this point anything is possible) and he went on the explain the mind/body connection. I am a bit sceptical, but I am trying to not feel down about it in the morning when it hurts and I swear it might work just a little.

I am sharing the quote below because it has been a powerful mantra for my Fall.  I am looking forward to the rest of the season and preparing for ALL the holiday things.
