Oh Where Oh Where Is Christine...

Sorry I have been mia for so long, but I have a really good excuse.  First things first though, my website is complete, and oh my gosh, so AMAZING!  Timi did such an incredible job, I can't stand it!  If you are looking for custom graphic work or a website, she is your girl.  Let me know what you think.

Second, the big announcement I promised I would share, are you ready?  GenMarie is going wholesale, and will begin manufacturing this Fall.  I am truly very excited about this!  GenMarie will be available in children's speciality boutiques throughout the country.  If you are a boutique owner, and are interested in carrying GenMarie, see my website for info.

Next, Emma does have celiac disease.  We finally found out for sure on Friday.  She had her endoscopy last Wednesday and it confirmed the diagnosis.  So if you have some great recipes or advice, I am all ears.  She has now been gluten free for 3 days, and is adjusting very well.  Now Chris, myself and Ava will be tested.  I think Chris may have it.  He has stomach problems on occasion, and is very thin.  The doctor looked at him, and thought maybe just by looking at him.  So we'll see.

And lastly, my arm is not healing well.  I had a cat scan last week, and it showed traces of cellulitis, which is an infection of the connective tissue.  It can be very dangerous.  I am back on antibiotics, 4,oo0 milligrams a day.  Right now I am waiting for my stomach to just fall out, lol.  Then I have an appointment with a surgeon next week.  He will decide if I need an MRI and if surgery is necessary.  So, I am not so happy about all of this, and I am in pain.   So now you know why I have been so quiet lately.  I managed to go to the doctor 5 times last week, 4 times for me, and once to the hospital for Emma.  And I managed to turn 31 in there somewhere, and Chris turned 33, lol.  

I have to leave you with some pictures, because what is a blog post without pictures.  These are items that will be available at Vida's Market.
