Says so on the box!...


Ok, I'm not all about back to back blogs but I just have to put my excitement out into the earth today!  I was sitting at work today, working (A.K.A...searching through my sweet read blogs) when I came across a post over at goingglutenfree.  In this lovely post she talks about General Mills Rice Chex being Gluten Free.  Remembering this post later on after work, I decided to scan the cereal isle at Target and I'll be damned if it isn't totally TRUE!  It it labeled very clearly on the box, which is a BIG deal if you know anything about labeling and the "hell" of reading and figuring out labels.  And how much easier is it now for people like me that can just go grab it and eat it!...After purchase of course.  I snagged up the biggest box I could find  and had some for dinner.  I am pumped.

Today also marks day 1 of a little journey of my own.  My lovely GI specialist diagnosed me on Friday with something called Refractory Sprue.  My body hasn't been responding to the Celiac diet for quite some time now so I decided to take action.  Well, long story short...it's been a long process with lots of tests and traveling and here we are!  I'll be taking a low dosage steroid (Entocort EC) for 6 months to a year and hope I don't have hair on my back or turn into a man by the end of this!  I don't think I'd make a very hot man...but I might get more action!  Sorry to get all "medical" on the readers but I just thought I'd school ya a bit!  What-What!  Expand your brains.

Wowzer..I am so excited for you about the Rice Chex...mainly b/c I know how much you LOVE cereal...as do I! Totally hear on the label thing, I am always looking for new things that my nephew "Z" can eat.

I am glad to hear they think they may have figured out what has been bothering you...I hope these steroids do the trick...I don't think you'll sound like Elvis or anything when your finished!

We both know that you already have a hairy back, much like my own.
