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 Hair, New Week!

Started the day with my teeth cleaning...never fun.  But, then....!

I went to the salon.  I got pampered.  They gave me a drink (non alcoholic of course).  I got my hair colored and cut and I look beauuuuuuuuuuutiful!  I bought two rings at their salon as they were on sale!

I thought, gee, I look too beautiful to stay home, so we went out to eat.  What I ordered was super spicey, and in mid-bite, I had a blow out of the ostomy nature.  I went to the bathroom and wished my gf was there.  I was in there for at least 20 minutes.  I will never eat that spicey wrap again.  It was a s**t storm to say the least.  Okay, now you are gagging.  I'm done.  Get used to my poop stories.

I still feel beautiful.  Hair is colored, highlighted and cut.  Gorgeous!

Today I see my kidney specialist.  That is another excuse to dine out and shop.  Then, I have a meeting at the clinic at 5 pm.  We are ordering pizza.  I will have to be careful today and wear looser fitting pants.

Don't let any accidents spoil your beauty!   "You are beautiful no matter what they say."
