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.

Just a Normal Day

I went to church and and after picked up my flowers from last week which still looked good.  They were in honor of my anniversary, but I wasn't up to attending services last week with Mom in the hospital and all.

When I got home, Hubby and I went for a ride to take some items back that I had purchased.  It is good to have some extra money in my checking account, but was so difficult to leave the store when they had a 50% off sale.  I did though.

We had a lovely lunch in a Mexican restaurant.  We both love Mexican/American food. 

On the drive home, I fell asleep in the car.  When I got home, I took a good nap on top of that!

I called my sister, and Mom had a good day.  She is showing signs of wanting to get better.

I watched the rest of the football game (our home team won), watched TV till 9pm and went to bed.  I slept through the night till 5am, which is an improvement for me this week.
