A Trip to the Beach
This was our first day out at the beach since the childrens' diagnoses, so we had to put quite a lot more thought into food than in previous years. Knowing we couldn't just pop into a fast food shop on the way home, we took much more food, and left earlier so we could be home in time for tea. The beloved DS ciabatta were packed, along with lots of gluten-free snacks and cakes.
We arrived home to a letter from Ruth's consultant. Her blood tests results were all good news - she is no longer anaemic, she is not iron, folate or B12 deficient. There is no sign of diabetes or thyroid problems, and most importantly her coeliac anti-bodies have gone right down, and are now 'equivocal'. A great end to a lovely day.
