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.

This and That cause Bronchitis is Boring

Okay.  It is May 26th.  Memorial Day weekend is coming up.  So why on Earth is it only 46°F?  I really want to put away all my Fall/Winter stuff.  Get out the capris, the sandals, the patio furniture!  Arghhhh!  The good news is, it is supposed to get to 60° by Sunday.

My cough is slowly loosening up.  My laryngitis is getting better.  My voice is still crackly.  Wonder if I'll be able to talk by the afternoon?  Hard to answer phones this way.  I need to get back to work!  I'm using up all my vacation time/pay.  Yuck.

I think I will work on my closet today.  That's my goal.  What's yours?

My brother in law died.  He was such a sweet, funny guy.  He had cancer and I guess it spread all over.  At least he didn't suffer and was in good spirits up to the end.   Jim and I had a nice chat with his sister.
