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.

A Few Musings

My incision leaked the other night (again!).  I don't know how long this will last.  I don't know how long I have to wear the breast binder.  I hate to call the nurse cause she was so snippy last time.
Someone asked me to print some coupons for diapers.  Do you download Coupon printer?
I don't know if I want to do that.  Do you get inundated with junk mail then?
I got a call from Walgreens Drugstore.  They want me to come in for a skills test to test out for a job.  Wonder what that entails?  I applied for the cosmetics department.  Wish me luck.
Any plans for Father's Day?  We will probably stay home and cook out on the grill.
Have a great weekend!
