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.

Boring is not so Bad

The sun is shining, but it is only 39°F at 7am.  We had frost during the night.  I want Spring!!!  The good news is that hubby mowed the lawn which is a sign of Spring.  When will it get warmer?  I have my hyacinth to plant!  I want to ride my bike, go for walks and rummage sales!  But, brrrrrrrr.  If it gets to 60° I will be thankful.

I vacummed our living room.  Big deal, huh?  For me it is.  After that bit of cleaning, I am fatigued.  My muscles were hurting from all the spasms and cramps I have been having.  I am going for a massage at 4:30, the only time I could get in, but I have to get rid of these knots in my muscles.  I called my doctor about my muscle spasms, and she suggested stopping my cholesterol med.  Hope I don't get a heart attack!

I have a boring life.  Maybe that is good.  My neighbors are quiet.  Nothing new happening at work.  Hubby and son are loving and supportive. 

What do you write about when there is nothing new?

Luciy I get random thoughts which turn ino posts !
I feel for you. It IS a big deal to vacumm - I persuaded my teenage daughter to tidy / clean her room with my help & I gave up half way through- too tired...so did she !
Massage is good -I keep meaning to book one for my frozen neck ( I remember in the middle of the night when it's worse !)
Hope you feel better soon. Sending Bloggy love xx
