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.

Almost on My Way!

Last night I was quite exhausted from work, but I did some laundry anyway.  I was out of panties as I have most all of them packed already!  All that is left is some meds, makeup, munchies and my purse.

Wednesday popped in by my mom to say Good Bye and leave her some videos.  Won't see her till Thanksgiving!

Yesterday I was on the switchboard and had several crabby people.  I wonder if it is a hangover from the presidential race?  I am glad all the phone calls, junk mail and commercials are over with.  Now, if people would just quit whining about the results and get on with life!

Maybe I am just too excited about my trip to New Orleans....  I leave early tomorrow morning, so until I get back...

C"sest la vie!
