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.

Looking Forward to the Weekend!

What's up for your weekend?  Today I am getting a freon charge for my car.  Hopefully the A/C will last through the summer .  I am not getting whole new A/C for my car; the car is 12 years old!

What can I do tomorrow?  It is too nice outside to stay in the house and just do laundry.  Would rather do it tonight.  There is an art fair about 40 miles from here...maybe I can persuade someone to go?

Sunday is Father's Day in the U.S.  Well, hubby already got his gift...a new recliner.  My bff is having a cookout and it is always nice to see the rest of the family.  Looking forward to it.
