The Gluten Free Challenge and other updates

So we are still on the Gluten Free challenge. My colonoscopy results were good, but that just leaves me more confused. No one can tell me if I have celiac disease or gluten intolerance, or wheat intolerance. It is difficult to eat anything. We made Betty Crocker gluten free cookies, they weren't too bad. I still like Pamela's better. I am supposed to do an endoscopy next followed by a visit to the allergist to test for wheat intolerance. This is getting expensive! It is nice to feel better though, finally!!!

Luke's cholestrol has gone back up, so on top of our gluten free lifestyle we are trying to cut out a few other foods. Since we eat pretty good now, he has removed sugar and we are on fat free milk. Obviously with the cookies, I am not quite there yet. Chocolate will be difficult to give up. We are also supposed to excercise more and eat more veggies.

The house buying is going well I guess. We won't really know until the day of closing, but we are hopeful. When that actually happens I will post about it.
