Hello and welcome. I have had CD probably since I was about 13, I am 44 now, but my Mom also had CD, so I have lived my whole life with this disease. I still learn new things every day, so the feeling of being overwhelmed is not unusual. The best thing you can do for your daughter you are already doing. Learning everything you can. If you can afford to buy some books about CD, do that, otherwise just borrow from the library. Start by going to your library and reading some, then buy the ones that you find to be the most helpful. I have about 7 or 8 that I can refer back to when I feel I need to look something up. Two books that are excellent are "The First Year" By Jill Sklar. It will take you day by day, then week by week through the first year after diagnosis, written by a CD patient, who was a forum moderator on another web site. Another book that I find absolutely wonderful is "Cooking Well for the Unwell" by Eileen Behan. She is a dietitian. She has sections in her book that cover just about every diet that your daughters doctor might put her on, clear liquids, full liquids, extra protein, low residue, how to make every bite count to gain weight,.... But it is helpful to anyone who has any type of illness. I actually have 2 copies because I was always loaning it out and never had my copy when I wanted it. It isn't in print anymore, but you should be able to find it on amazon as a used book for about $4 or so. It is well worth it.
And please come here and ask any questions or vent anytime you need to.
