Picture: This is what happens when you raise a kid on health food and they get ahold of a Coke! Bad mom, that soda is NOT on the reflux diet.
UPDATE: Isaiah is now 12 and off meds! He is doing great, eating again and hopefully will be catching up in the growing department. I am still in the "hoping it sticks" phase, but we're so happy that he's better!
We're back! (from RissaRoo)

Hi, everyone! I'm sorry I wasn't able to stop in all week last week, I thought I'd be able to but I forgot my Pager password so I could only read, not post...plus the internet went out at my dad's house so I had to go somewhere else any time I wanted to use the computer.

I feel so out of the loop! I haven't had a chance to go over very many posts....Melissa, any news on the Celiac test? I know that most Oatmeal does have wheat in it, because oats are usually grown and processed with wheat. You have to buy gluten free (certified) oats, and I do react if the oats are not GF. However, I'd be a little surprised if a test came back positive at this point if he hasn't had more than a few oats...but you never know. It's not a terrible thing to have if he does have it, and if it's Celiac then that could explain some of the other food issues he's had...it can mess your gut up so that you can't digest things normally. I hope he's feeling better soon! Update me when you can, I'm worried about you guys!

I don't have much time to update right now, but I will try to later on today. We had a great time in Idaho and the house and animals are OK, so that's good. I have some fun photos up on my blog (www.anerissara.blogspot.com) if you want to see! I've got to go, but I'll be back later to catch up. Hope everyone is doing well, I missed you! ~Erica (RissaRoo)

Sharon...wow, we drove right through Nampa on our way home! We spent the night in Boise on our way to my dad's. Actually, my DH looked at going to school in Nampa awhile ago. They have a Christian college with a master's in Christian Counseling. My dad lives in Moscow...that's right up in the pan handle and from his deck you can see Washington. Fun!
