All blood tests normal. Nothing to do but suck it up and trundle on. Damn you, deer tick and Dr. ThereIsNoLymeHere. Damn you, stupid body.

For lack of anything better to say, here’s a picture of Teddy at his birthday party, which celebrated his two loves, trucks and shoes.



  1. Wait, so “all blood tests normal,” WTF does that mean?

    What did they test for? Just celiac? Did they test for other stuffs?

  2. They tested for a bunch of stuff, basically to rule out any complicating factors. All of those came back negative, which is good, except that it leaves me with this all just being Lyme-related. And there’s nothing to be done about that. I was sort of hoping that there would be some treatable thing in there that would make me feel better.

  3. I wonder if it’d be worth trialling gluten free just to see what happens. If you have a mysterious auto immune issue that they can’t yet identify, it might prove helpful. I’ve heard vitamin D is often low in people with autoimmune stuff, did they test that too?

    T is seriously cute.

  4. Can he be any cuter?! Just stumbled upon your blog, and your story is very inspiring. All the best wishes for your beautiful children.
