Wow, it's been 2 weeks since I blogged last time! I'll blame being busy, but it's not that easy. It's more of taking care of my family and myself. I've been to the dentist and may actually end up having a root canal some time in the next month. I don't have any free time to do it though until after July 11. We'll see what happens. Hopefully I can keep the pain under control until then. The other family crisis that we have been dealing with is Kim and her tummy. She has been having nausea upon eating any meal since before Spring Break. When we finally got to see the doctor, they took blood and suggested a wheat free diet. It took a couple of days to get to this diet, and Kim slowly started feeling better. 4 days later she was feeling really good and tried some baked beans that we knew to be wheat/gluten free. It make her feel so sick within minutes. Maybe the acidy tomatoes in it? Except that she can eat my spaghetti sauce with no problem at all. I let the doctor know that the regular wheat free diet was doing well, but the baked beans did her in. So we have an appointment to see a GI doctor, but it isn't until mid August unless there is a cancellation that we can get into. Very frustrating to say the least! The celiac sprue test that they did, came back negative. However, in the reading I have done, the final test for that is a biopsy. Kim is supposed to go back to a regular diet, but she doesn't want to. She's been feeling so much better that she doesn't want to change back. I don't blame her at all. I'm kind of tired of seeing her eat just rice, veggies and fruit. She doesn't like to eat meat too much and won't eat any dairy either because she thought she was lactose intolerant, but she won't even try some little things now like yogurt or cheese.
Here's some bread we made today. It is mostly rice flour and potato starch. It is pretty good.
I have been knitting, at least on Mr. Greenjeans. Almost done. The buttonband and re-doing the sleeve cuffs a littl bit.
Tomorrow Kim and I are going to sit at Streets of Tanabourne for a couple of hours with a group of other knitters for World Wide Knit in Public Day. Another woman and I and Kim were interviewed the other day for a local little paper. It will be fun to see what the reporter came up with. She's a knitter and will be there tomorrow as well. I found it online, it's just a little bit and there aren't any pictures, but I'll see it tomorrow in person and I'm pretty sure there will be some pictures. :)
