I don't want to sound paranoid, I'm not that concerned about it at this point, but I wanted to write it down.
Last Saturday at a social gathering Barrett exercised such great self-control for the most part. I was very proud of him. He was hovering over the cookies and cheese crackers with such longing, but he would just look up at me and say, "Those will make you sick." However, you can only expect so much self-control for a two year old. After about 30 minutes he snuck under the table and was eating the crumbs of some smashed cheese crackers.
We saw the usual contamination symptoms: stomach ache, diarrhea, diaper rash (his poor swollen legs!), runny nose/cough, bloating, meltdowns, etc. But I also noticed times when he would just stare off into space an appear not to be aware of anything for several seconds. Then he would just go on as if nothing had interrupted what he was doing. Just yesterday he had been crying because he got a sliver in his foot. My husband was holding him and then he just stopped for several seconds and was staring into space. I was snapping my fingers right in front of his eyes and he wouldn't blink or anything.
I don't want to jump to the conclusion that these are seizures, but the certainly could be. It's something that I am going to watch closely and keep in mind though. I'm not sure if there is a link between that and celiac or not. If anyone knows anything about it though, please comment! (It only seems to happen if he is contaminated).
