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.

Short little Post

My frail little Mom.  She fell in her room the other day.  She broke the cartilage in one ear.
Her whole body aches.  She has lost her appetite and is on pain medication.  I hope she didn't break her spirit too.

I am going to visit her today.  I'm not sure what else I will do today.  Tomorrow I would REALLY like to go to Archivers in Appleton with my bff.  I have missed going to that store.

Have a great weekend!

Oh I do hope she feels better soon. I am sure a visit from you will do her the power of good. Give her my best wishes for a speedy recovery.
