Our family will be going through some autoimmune defiency testing over the next couple of weeks. Chris has already been tested since he now has diabetes and there is no family history of type 1. At least I don't know of anyone that does. It is kind of hard to figure that out since I'm adopted. I do know my biological family, but through life situations even they don't know the family medical history.
Yesterday Chris' doctor called to let us know that he tested positive for celiac.
"Celiac disease is an inherited, autoimmune disease in which the lining of the small intestine is damaged from eating gluten and other proteins found in wheat, barley, rye, and possibly oats"-from google.
Quilting: I need to focus on something that is positive. Yesterday morning I made a list of quilts that I want to make. I have a few of my own patterns that I need to get working on. I would like to publish the patterns....now to just get busy and get a moving! I went as far, yesterday, as gathering fabrics to make each of these quilts...that can be very dangerous and time consuming. I was able to focus and finish quilting and put a binding on a quilt that is a gift for someone.
Time to get moving off line...lots to do today!
