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.

One Last Nap?

Yesterday I had a meeting at 7 am before work!  I said I had optical proctitis....I just couldn't see dragging my butt in this early!  (okay, old joke).

Truth be told, my sleep schedule is way off.  I wake up at 5 am, hit a wall in the afternoon, but if a nap is not available, manage to get over the wall. Then at night, I am lucky to stay awake till 8pm!  Maybe this schedule will serve me well through my vacation to DC.  After all, we have to be ready (three of us in a room) early in the morning, eat breakfast and be on the bus by 8 am!  Then we're off again.  Probably better for me than for those who are used to sleeping in.

Today I am working a half day.  I have laundry to do, suitcase to pack, time to spend with my family.  Maybe I'll take in one last nap?
