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.

Life is Good!

I am tired of winter, so I must change the appearance of my blog.  Actually this is the mildest winter I can remember.  Global warming?  It has been 40°F in late January!  The snow is melting.  Oh, I know we will get colder temps yet and at least one or two snowfalls.  Will we get a storm?  Who knows?  Still, I look forward to my annual trip to Florida where I can wear sandals and capris!


It will be fun to bring my hubby and now he will know why I love to go there so much!  Naples is beautiful!
I can't wait to visit it again!

Work has been going well.  I am starting to calm down.  For quite a few days I was experiencing stomach aches and anxiety chest pains.  It's gone now.  I can only do my best and take one patient at a time when registering them.  It will all fall into place.

I learned something last week.  When shopping, if you find something that fits and you like it, scoop it up!  You will wear it more often then.  I cannot wait to wear my grey jeans and tops that go with.  One of these days I will model the outfit for you!

Life is good!
