Tough week so far

So far this week has been pretty trying. I was feeling much better over the break and I was adapting well to the new diet. I had some pain New Years day but it did not last long. This past Sunday evening was a different story though. I began feeling pain after eating dinner (which was all G-free...we checked everything multiple times). I went to bed early but did not sleep much at all. I woke up with the same feeling I had a month ago when this all started. I went to work but had to come home during the day to rest during my planning period. I made it through the rest of the day and thought I made it over the hump. Well, you guessed it, I was in more severe pain today than yesterday. I tried going to work but made I couldn't make it out of the parking lot before bending over in pain. So I took the day off and went to the doctor and called all of the other doctors (I feel like I talk to them more than I talk to anyone else these days). Soon the consensus was made that this was not a Celiac Sprue problem. So back to the drawing board. I meet with a surgeon tomorrow to see what they can do. Basically, they all think it is my gallbladder :( At this point, I just want to be pain free.

Ok so besides that...I will find positives from this week so far.

1. Great G-Free stir fry and beef tips over rice made by my Aunt Beth and Uncle Frank!! Thanks!
2. Trader Joes is AMAZING! The people there are so helpful and caring. Plus they have a huge selection of G-Free goodies! Everyone should shop there!
3. Smoke free dining this week (I know that has nothing to do with my diet but it was fantastic!)

Hang in there! I had to have my gallbladder out last year- it made such a difference. . . I'm still praying for you! Glad you can point out some of the positives.
