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.

I Love Camping!

When we got to Calument County Campground, someone was on our site and didn't have to move till 5pm.  Since we didn't want to miss going out for fish with the group or set up in the dark, we took a different site.
This was the view we should have had.  We enjoyed it at our fellow camper friend's.
This is the view we got:
The weekend was celebrating a 60th birthday (a mere babe).

I enjoyed taking pictures of the day.

I love jungle gyms.  We didn't have them in my day.

"So, who's stopping me now?"
