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.

Neither This or That

I have been busy this week with work.  That said, a coworker, and my mentor, told me that she thinks I have more confidence, am quicker and just looking like things are beginning to click!  Well, it has been ten months, but always learning something new!

My Mom had a CT scan yesterday of her lungs.  The good news is that it isn't cancer.  The bad news is that the pneumonia is back and this time in both lungs!  It is a worse type but caught earlier than last year, so the doctor wants to give it the one, two punch with antibiotics.  Hope my Mom responds.  She is frail but still, a strong vibrant woman!

So, I have nothing new to say.  Will do my weekend laundry and go up to the hospital.
