Thanks Kent,

Off topic rant: My wife was diagnosed with a gluten intolerance 
and Celiac disease (a digestive issue). The leading Celiac 
researcher in Boston stuck a tube down her throat, took a biopsy 
of her stomach lining and proclaimed that she had irritable bowel 
syndrome. He ignored other symptoms and sent us on our way. Jerk.

Yes, mostly the doctors in Boston are fabulous, but this one 
should lose his license. We didn't trust his response and kept 
pushing. If we didn't have friends that got us an appointment with 
the doctor in NYC, we'd still be fumbling around for a diagnosis. 
The head of the Celiac research center at CP in NY was pretty 
surprised at what happened in Boston.

So yes, we'll travel to NY for better care. And the results of the 
visit were positive...no signs of nerve damage due to the Celiac
