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.

The Accident

It was stupid, careless, where was my brain?  I was thinking of going to the next rummage sale, when I backed up and "crunch."  I hit the car across the rear.  This was my first accident, so I was so glad to have my bff and sister along.  The lady whose car I hit was also with a friend.  The important thing....no one was hurt.  I was upset, very upset.  I would have to pay a $500 deductible.  Oh, let's add that to the money woes.  So, as I always do, I cried.  We cordially exchanged insurance information, addresses, I called my insurance company immediately and it will be taken care of.  The lady whose car I hit, gave me a HUG and so did her friend.  What some sweethearts.

After that I didn't want to drive, so bff did.  I did find a pair of yellow scrub pants, a pair of white jeans and a video for my godson.

When I told my hubby the news, he said "well, one accident in twenty some years isn't so bad, but you have to pay for it!"  I need a second job!

Last night I watched a show on the effects of cannabis on the brain and body.  We all have some of our own cannabis (without smoking).  I don't think I have enough!

Sorry to hear of your accident.
1 in 20+ yrs is pretty good going!

Hope you win a lottery or something to help with the money side of things!
