During the test- I read my book, a Saveur mag, and talked on the phone.  It went by pretty quickly actually!

The wonderful nurses aide let me take pictures during in the room Smile

So what happened  during my test?

I drank a large dose of lactose and  every 30 minutes I blew into a tube connected to a bag.blowing into the tube

The air in the bag was then tested for hydrogen.

Even half way through the test – my numbers were going down…

the testing begins

Then, they when up again- big bums! Of course- my test was hard to read Winking smile

almost done

3 hours and 15 minutes later – I found out that I am not lactose intolerant.

So this Wednesday I will be seeing an allergist who hopefully will help me figure out what is going on.

I guess that’s good news! Though still frustrating to not know what exactly is going on… hope you and Luna manage to enjoy this wet weekend!
