Tuesdays with TLC

Hi, again!

Little Leighton was diagnosed with Celiac Disease right as she turned two-years-old. Not only did we receive her diagnosis early, we also received it very quickly. That is typically not the case. Many Celiacs suffer for years. One of the first books we read after her diagnosis was by actress and fellow Celiac, Jennifer Esposito (Mom and I have adored her for years. In case you don't recognize her name, we believe you'll recognize her beautiful face.):

Jennifer's Way: My Journey with Celiac Disease--
What Doctors Don't Tell You and How You Can Learn to Live Again

I've linked to it above, via Amazon. Her book is packed with amazingly relevant information for those struggling with Celiac Disease and those longing for answers to so many unexplained issues and questions. While we couldn't necessarily relate to the YEARS (Truly years and years.) of pain Jennifer experienced, this book offered me HOPE. Hope for LL. Hope for others. Hope for more research. For answers.


LL's early diagnosis? A BLESSING. While I certainly wouldn't have chosen this life for her or our family, I am genuinely grateful for the empathy it's afforded me. If you, or a loved one, has experienced any type of chronic health condition, one that has left you confused and/or frustrated and/or exhausted, you might consider ordering a copy of this book. It could give you some of the answers you've been searching for!

Happy Tuesday, Friends!
