I mentioned last week that we have been waiting for some answers – I haven’t really shared about it on here but Jared has been sick for the last month and a half. He got some tests done a couple of weeks ago and last week the doctor was able to call us with an answer -he has tested positive for celiac disease.
While it is nice to finally have an answer, it is definitely going to be a learning curve. If you were to stop by our house today you would see piles of gluten-filled food on the counter in my quest to banish all things containing gluten. There are so many things to think about; cross contamination (between foods or utensils/dishes), all the items that may contain gluten and the list of unsafe ingredients is about a mile long and, I think, impossible to memorize.
Thankfully there has been a big movement towards gluten-free eating in the last couple of years and that will help tremendously. Right now I would love to hear if you have any resources; favorite recipes, blogs, cookbooks, places to buy gluten-free food (which seems to be much harder in Canada than the US and even harder here in Saskatchewan than some of the more populated provinces).
The beautiful rainbows above reminds me that God is faithful, He will see us through everything.
I would love it if you would keep us in your prayers during this transition, and especially for Jared, that he will start to see (and feel) some improvement soon.
