Things are looking green.. and filled with mucus

I know it's been a while since I've posted. We've been worried sick about ZenGirl, who thankfully seems oblivious to all the fussing. Even though PhilosopherMom has given up dairy, beef, soy, nuts, legumes, eggs and fish from her diet, we are still seeing blood in her stool. Saturday, it got pretty bad so we rushed down from the cottage to the Montreal Children's Hospital to get her a blood test, and hopefully some helpful advice. The bloodtests were reassuring, but no useful advice was forthcoming. After talking to a dietician who deals with this sort of thing, and doing some reading of our own, PhilosopherMom decided to go gluten-free on top of all the other restrictions. It's been 48h, $50 on two small bags of stuff from HealthTree and no blood since yesterday. I've done quite a bit of reading on MSPI, and the use of elimination diets. I'm going to get the links up as soon as possible.
