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.

Why I Haven't Blogged

I think I have a boring life.  I have been working and cleaning up after my garage sale (which is taking forever!)  I finished reading Angry Housewifes Eating Bon Bons.  This was a wonderful book, full of delightful characters.  It is about a book club who become the closest of friends over the decades.  I was really sorry when I finished the book and miss my friends!

My son got a job!  The place where he was doing his internship hired him as a part time IT specialist.  Part time is better than no time, and he has his foot in the door.

I am still worried about my sister and her family problems.  I cannot get into it, but please pray for her.

I am also concerned for my nephew who is losing so much weight and the doctors don't seem to know what is wrong with him.  I hope I can go to the doctor with him and tell the doctor to get on the stick!

I am starting another home based business, but not getting much of a favorable response.  I need to earn extra income, but can't spend alot of time on my feet since I broke my leg near my ankle.

Well, that's my boring life.  Maybe boring is good?
