Good afternoon/evening! I want to thank all my MW family for your thoughts, prayers, pixie dust and personal texts these past weeks. I'm glad that the week is over! I'm trying to look on the bright side of all my bad news. And to update you all on my littlest angel: Her blood test told us she has an autoimmune disease AND that she is allergic to milk and eggs, UGH! Her autoimmune disease is Celiac. This meant a lot of food cut out of her diet and those M&Ms (her fave) were hard to deal with losing. When we first got her bloodwork back we weren't sure it was Celiac, diabetes, Crohn's disease or something else. I wish she didn't have Celiac, but I'm thankful that it's not something worse. The specialist also told us to ignore the milk and egg allergies, because food allergy tests are not often accurate. Unless you have Celiac or know someone close to you that does, it's much more than not eating bread and it's hard for a little child to understand it. Already she has accidentally eaten something she shouldn't have at school for snack time with a sub teacher there. She felt very bad that afternoon. Over time it'll get easier, I know, since my other daughter has it. Our biggest hurdles are yet to come with 2 birthday parties coming up. Again, thanks to everyone for caring and thinking of her!
So glad it was nothing serious, but serious enough cutting food out. Good luck to you doing that :) Sending more pixie dust to help with food choices! - DisneyVicki  23.6 #135 6:04PM
Thank goodness it's nothing more serious. It will be tough still, your family is in my prayers (: - ariel116  74.2 #70 6:15PM
So sorry to hear that, Diz! But I know you are relieved it can be somewhat of a moot issue with a controlled diet. Poor thing. I know that's hard for us, let alone little ones. 😢 - mrsincredible  731.5 #5 6:17PM
Praying for your little one! - minniemaclean  16.6 #162 6:25PM
Glad to hear you got answers. The week is almost over, time to rest and relax! Take care! - Andrea84  601.0 #7 6:41PM
I'm happy to hear it wasn't worse. Sending prayers and pixie dust to your family✨✨✨✨ - Schramke  402.2 #15 6:45PM
So glad it's a managable diagnosis. May make it easier for both girls having the same food choices. Pixie dust for a better ending to your week. - Maleficent69  105.1 #55 6:57PM
My father in law was diagnosed last year with Celiac. There are some great products out there especially if you have a Sprouts market. They even have gluten fee cake mix. My mother in law bought a case of it!! You could make her, her own cupcake to take to the parties. - mzdisnee  421.7 #14 7:07PM
Pixie dust your way. There are a lot of gluten free places out there. My friend has the same thing. - Pooh147856  132.5 #52 7:10PM
Bless her heart! Its hard for family to be ill but it seems so much worse when its your child! Lots of pixie dust and prayers to your lil one and your family! - girlonfire  52.4 #86 7:19PM
aww, I am sorry your princess is going through all this!! Prayers and pixie dust going your way! It will get easier, but HARD right now I am sure!! - ncjal  185.9 #37 8:15PM
Thank goodness it isn't very serious. Prayers you guys can get everything in order for her. - ccmom  183.6 #38 8:38PM
Any illness is hard for a child and the family. So sorry. Illness that affect diet is often the worst especially when they are small. Just keep talking to her about only eating the things you send for her in school. - 5disneylovers  717.9 #6 8:58PM
I'm so glad you finally got some answers and know what your dealing with. Continued prayers to your daughter and family. - disneycm  496.9 #11 9:18PM
Glad it's not serious !!!!! - skcanfield  463.7 #12 9:35PM
I know two people with Celiac and they feel so much better now that they've changed their diet. I have a disease where I can't eat chocolate (among other things) anymore. It was so hard to get used to. Once I started having no more pain though, now I look at chocolate and I can feel the pain that would come with eating it. I really don't want it. Hopefully, your daughter will learn what is best to eat and will start feeling much better. It's hard for someone so young. - ally  503.8 #10 12:11AM
Oh that brought tears to my eyes! So hard for children to understand that they can't eat certain foods! I pray that it gets easier for both your children. I just want to give her a hug. Poor girl! I am so glad that its not something serious that you can't control. Hang in there! :) if you need to vent, your welcome to email me, I'm a good listener. - disneyworldsbiggestfan  50.4 #89 12:18PM
Glad you found out what was the problem is...I know it must be hard for her..if will get easier after time... - dxcmama  221.3 #30 12:47PM
Aww poor kid. It'll be tough at first but I'm sure once you get a set diet it'll get easier.I know someone with Celiac and she does great with it. She has to be doubly diligent about reading the ingredients in processed foods not only for her but for her son who, while not having Celiacs, is allergic to all nuts (airborne & ingested). Im going to keep my eyes open for recipes that are gluten free for her especially the sweet ones. - Tinkerbell1265  440.4 #13 10:37PM
I hope she feels better!! Prayers for you all !! - lghr  27.6 #123 11:44PM
SOO many people in my family have celiac! And everyone deals with it great! We hve this great recipe we make "flourless chocolate cupcakes" super easy to make and SOOO GOOD! Google it it should pop right up! And please take note that disney is EXTREMELY and INCREDIBLY accomodating at EVRY SINGLE RESTERAUNT for my family members with celiac!!! - Boardwalkgirl  54.6 #84 1:41AM
