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.

Saturday's Wedding

Okay, I promised you a picture or two.  These are from the wedding Saturday night.  We looked as good as an old married couple can!  (Jim has outgrown his suit)

There was this beautiful arch where people could get their picture taken.  I didn't realize I was wearing wedding colors!

The bride and her sister, the matron of honor.  This is the only picture I could get of my coworker.  She is such a sweet girl and had a lovely wedding.

The best part of the evening is when the best man gave his speech and then burst into song for the couple.  He sang " L is for the Way You Look at Me" by Nat King Cole.  The groomsman, bridesmaids and guests all joined in for the song to the wedding couple!
