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.

Just a Little News

Today my mom has an endoscopy (swallows a small camera) at the hospital today.  She is 93 and I hope all goes well and they can take care of what ails her.
The weather has been very cool, so spent yesterday at a cook IN at my bff's.  It was raining to top off the colder weather.  Felt like Fall.  The company and food was good none the less.
Did I tell you I have decided against any mundane job for the sole purpose of having a job.  I want a medical office job or nothing.  " Nothing" is looking good right now as I find ways to keep myself busy.
I got some new cabinets inexpensively through Facebook area buy and sell.  The cabinets are white and placed with my other craft cabinets.  I will also accent the walls with white.  When I get all the mess picked up I shall post a picture.
Still having trouble sleeping.  Had a ton of bad dreams last night.
Talked to my cousin.  Her dad is reaching out to her more now.  That is good news and prayer being answered.

Glad you had fun at your cook IN! I hope that your Mom does okay with her test today. Those tests are harder on older people. Blessings- xo Diana

Sending prayers your mother's tests go by without a hitch.

You were asking about the cardinal alert, it is the striped and diamond strip on the bottom of the window. It's a peel and stick decal that you apply to it. Never had a window feeder, so we'll see how it works.
