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.

Wee Hours on a Tuesday

Oh we got snow last night!  Again!  Hope my lovely neighbor blows us out.  It's not bad unless the snowplow goes through and closes my driveway.

It snowed yesterday too, and was kind of nasty when I took son to work, so opted not to go work out.  Instead I craweled back in bed when I got home.  It felt good and warm and sleep was wonderful.  I don't often sleep well during the night, so I do enjoy my naps!

Had my mammogram...ouch!  Then, went and had my massage which was right next door.  A good massage is more beneficial than all the vitamins and medications in the world.  I felt great and wish I could do it more often.  The therapist worked on that pulled muscle of mine from working out.  (not a cracked rib).

Made chicken enchiladas yesterday.  Don't quite have the hang of my food processor yet, as my chicken got more like spread than chunks.  Still tasted good.  Hubby calls the enchiladas my specialty.

Not sure what I am doing today besides shoveling.   Maybe I will clean a cupboard or a coat clostet.  Hmmm.  Maybe I will hunker down and sleep again... ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
