Oh dear colon... why my you hate me so @ 12:56 pm

I just got back from my GI doctor and he told me that he wants to test me for a couple things. First he wants a blood test for a gluten allergy. A gluten allergy would explain some of my symptoms. Being allergic to gluten would really suck as gluten is in almost everything.

Secondly he wants to give me a flex sigmoidoscopy to check out my pouch. Now I have a camera up the butt to look forward to. He explained a lot of things, but didn't have a lot of answers just wanted some more tests.

Now I'm kinda bummed because I'm really not looking forward to either of those.

I have had the flex sigmoidoscopy and it is nothing to worry about at all. Also, while an allergy to gluten is annoying, it is totally manageable. My cousins (two of them) have that allergy and do very well. In fact, let me know of they do diagnose you with that allergy and I will have my one cousin who has it, who is in nursing administration, give me shopping information that will help Angie with food choices for you. Also--some Catholic Churches allow gluton-free Host to be offered for those with that allergy. If you are diagnosed with that, see if your priest will cooperate. My cousin arranged for gluten-free host to be offered at her son's wedding, which is how I know it can be done.

Whoa! I never even thought about the eucharist being gluten based. When it's consecrated it's turn in the body of Jesus, no more gluten! Maybe even Jesus was gluten based.

Remember that Our Lord Jesus Christ was entirely human and at the same time entirely God, that was the miracle. Consecration makes the Host the Body of Christ, but apparently the gluten remains. Which ever of us gets to Heaven first should address that matter with the highest authority possible. Also, teeth should be created indestructible if possible.
