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.

An update

My cousin, Eva passed peacefully in her sleep on Saturday at 2:30 am.
Her husband had taken her to the nearest ER on Friday for severe pain.  They administered morphine and she slept most of the day, but not before talking with her husband and saying good bye.  He had the feeling she would not be leaving the hospital.  Now she is in Heaven with our Lord.  I thank everyone for all their prayers and am so thankful that Eva didn't suffer too long and passed so peacefully.  I continue to pray for the relationship between father and daughter, especially now that Eva is gone.
