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.

Some of My Favorite Products

When I had my artificial nails, my real nails got so thin and weak. They would split, tear and peel. I have tried alot of nail products, but none worked like this product from QVC, a home shopping network. My nails were below the quick. Soon, I will polish them! It is called Perfect Formula Gel Coat nail strengthener.

Another product I love is Estee Lauder's Advanced Night Repair for eyes. Just a little dab will do ya. It's a gel and feels so good! I don't know if it's getting rid of the crow's feet or not, but it makes me feel beautiful!

The good news is that I don't need a root canal on my molar. The bad news is I have to go the oral surgeon today and have the entire thing dug out. Give me good drugs please! Maybe sometime in the future I will get a implant for that gap. In the meanwhile, I will just smile and use my eye gel!
