About Me

My photo
I have spent a great deal of my life battling illness. I suffered from Crohn's Disease and eventually had abdominal surgery, thwarting the Crohn's and budding cancer cells. Since my surgery in 1995 I have been relatively free from Crohns', although I had several subsequent surgeries related to my ileostomy..When my disease was in remission, I don't think my husband realized how bad it could get, but he has stood by me. I also have suffered from various autoimmune disorders and am diagnosed with Stage IV Kidney Disease. Fortunately, I am maintaining and do not need dialysis at this point. We adopted our son and later found out he had cerebral palsy, so he became my career. Dan has had two surgeries and tons of therapy and is able to walk because of it. He is a college graduate and is employed as an Information Specialist. We are very proud of his accomplishements. I am now part of the retired generation and still getting used to the idea. I do enjoy crafting, traveling and being with family and friends. I am active in my church and feel that the hardships we endure are there to build our faith. I like to live life in the "now" as we never know how much time is left.

On to Plan B

My sister and  were going to go "camping" with her motorhome this weekend.  Well, since her husband's passing in March and getting older, she is afraid to drive it.  It sways in the wind and she had that experience last weekend and didn't like it.  So, on to plan B, but wait, I thought I had off on Friday....oh no, I don't, never got the date approved.  So now sister Connie and I are taking a sister day and going up to Door County, window shop, get some cherries, whatever.  Will stay overnight Saturday night, sit in the hot tub and just be sisters.

My bff is down in the dumps because she has little followers of her blog, "Chocolate, One of My Many Addictions."  It is really a good read most of the time and there is a cute video of my great niece rockin out to a band.  Please check it out here:  http://lindaloveschocolate.blogspot.com/

Well, hubby is home and hopefully the two of us will get something done around here today.  If not, I am going to the waterpark.

Have a great day!
