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.

Plan B; New addiction?

Yesterday I had to reschedule my stress test.  I forgot, and had caffeine.  Do you think it was a subconscious action on my part?  I was dreading the test and now it is put off for two weeks.

So, Plan B:  My bff said, "Go to the stamp along with me."  I did, and created the following cards.  Some are seen on bff's blog, http://lindaloveschocolate.blogspot.com/





Hugs, Deb

I love the cards! And I hate stress tests! I think you're right, your subconscious was at work! Just like when I forget and eat before a cholesterol check -- I hate those needles!
