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.

Moving Towards the Weekend!

Well, the good news is Mom fought off the pneumonia AGAIN!  She is one tough cookie.  I think she does it for us kids.  She does have some emphysema and is still on antibiotics, but back at the Health Care Center.

I am having a scrap booking party.  I always commit to parties.  What is wrong with me?  I don't have many people coming, but am sure we'll have fun.  I want to learn more about the digital scrap booking too.  I'll have to take pictures of my party!

I made a huge mistake at work and tried to ignore it.  The fact is, it came back to bite me in the butt.
The moral of the story is that confession is good for the soul and usually in one's best interest.  I will just have to be extra careful, but it is a challenge when we are doing so many things at once.

It is supposed to be a rainy weekend.  What do you do when it's rainy all weekend?
