Welcome To The Weekend: Link Up!

Welcome To The Weekend: Link Up! Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have fun at this week’s blog hop.

I am not going to lie, I thought this year was going to be the best year ever but so far it sucks! My Mother in Law got really ill at the end of last year and is recovering slowly. My Dad has been really poorly too and having lots of tests.

Welcome To The Weekend: Link Up!

Then the Doctors called me yesterday with some test results back about my Daughters health. As well as having Coeliac Disease for sure because we kept getting a positive and a negative reading every time since we first got diagnosed in September last year (Finding Out My Daughter Has Coeliac Disease).

She is low in Vitamin D so that could be causing the Vitiligo on her leg to keep getting bigger.

I am really hoping things will start to go better now for everyone. Also now we have had all the test results back for my Daughters health we can change her diet for good again soon after her biopsy and hopefully this will make her health a lot better.
