it certainly wasn't due to low stress...
i don't know how you city folks live with this disease and deal with traffic!! aahhhh!!!

anyway, i suspect there is some problem with my house... probably mildew.
it was almost overnight that i started seeing a drastic improvement in the quality of my poo once we got to the mainland. i can't believe how happy i was to see poo that looked pretty normal!! and i had several days just like it until i got too cold at yosemite.

but we are now on a mission to kill the mildew and see if that helps me at all.

will post any news about that!

Wow! That certainly can be a telltale sign that there is a mold issue...that you feel better when you leave your normal env't for awhile, like a vacation. I would definitely give the mold thing a second look. It may even be in places you can't see. I'm thinking there is a test you can have done in your home. Let us know....

Welcome home Heather! You're going to have to let us know how the little one handled everything. I love going on vacation but it's always so nice to come home isn't it?? I'm glad your body behaved itself - that makes for more special memories. So was the city the same as you remembered it?
