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.

New Day

Yesterday was not good as I had a "discussion" about chores with my adult son.  I then proceeded to have a melt down.  My sister had to come and calm me down. (I was driving)  I have made a call to my  doctor to see about increasing my meds.  I have a chemical imbalance and I have been more weepy and anxious than usual.  I don't know why.

The good news:  My husband helped me with the cleaning and son will help too.  (I can only hope).  I also feel like doing a bit more.

I found a black skirt with the price tag still on at a thrift store.  I got it for Halloween, but would be appropriate for church and whatever.  I only paid $3 for it and it is essentially new!  I also got a pretty plaid blouse for $2.  I guess I am in a plaid mode lately....LOL.

Have a happy day!
