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.

Writer's Block and Musings

Writer's block.  I just don't seem to have anything to say.  Whether it is a post or replying to someone else's blog.  I can't think.....hmmmm.

The Royal Wedding:  Glad the pre-wedding hoopla is over.  I did like the ceremony itself.  I liked the sermon and the secret glances and smile exchanged between William and Kate.  The smile spoke volumes.

I have been so tired of late.  I can't seem to catch up on my sleep.  I went to bed at 8pm and slept a good nine hours.  Hope that helps.

I have so much to do before my trip on Tuesday.  My house is a mess.  I have the ever present laundry, I need to wrap a birthday gift for bff, and finish my Mother's Day card.  I have to pack my collection of cups and saucers and set them up for display at church. Bff and I have altar guild this month.  That means that we have to set up the altar for communion. 

I am excited about our trip to St Louis.  More on that later!
