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.

Shopping Therapy

I couldn't get a freon charge for my car.  Can't go leaking freon out into the environment.  So, I will suffer.

My sister has been feeling down in the dumps.  Every time there is a holiday, she misses her husband.  I had asked her to pick me up at the repair shop, so she had to put her make-up on and look pretty and leave her house! 
 We then went to Kohl's for shopping therapy.
I am not crazy about the peasant style blouses this year, but did manage to find three that I liked.

I love prints and love teal!

I like the one on the far right. Too bad about the freon, good thing you have short hair, ya don't have to worry about messing it up too much.
