a new thing to fit into life

As many of you know I was ill this past Thanksgiving and have not been given a diagnosis...until now! The whole thing is a bit complicated but the important part is that I am now avoiding gluten. When the call came on Friday I couldn't have been happier to finally get a diagnosis. Over the weekend my super planner mindset kicked in and I realized it would take some adjustment.

The doctor has said that even though blood test for Celiac disease came back negative he is almost positive that's what it is. Apparently it is not unheard of for someone to have Celiac but a negative blood test. I will be going gluten free for about a month (suggestions from those more experienced than I always welcome) and then we'll see how symptoms have changed.

We are hoping my symptoms disappear because then we for sure know what is going on. In the meantime look forward to my gluten free recipes that will be posted.

No menu planning for this week because of crazy busy schedules but still look forward to delicious dinner suggestions.

Thank you all for your support!


  1. Hang in there!! Once you get used to going gf and you get the hang of it, it's really not that bad. Glad you're finally getting some answers. Hope you start feeling better soon.

  2. Thank you all for your comments! I have a lot of research to look through so that I understand everything but I'm starting to pull recipes together so I think I'll be ok :-)

  3. Katie, did they actually do the biopsy though?
