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.

Mid Week News

My week started on a down note as Mom was not feeling well and then my sister in law told me that she had said she wishes she would just die.  I do pray she would have better days and not so many where she just doesn't feel good.  Her quality of life is going, and if and when she passes, I pray it is in her sleep.
Tuesday night I went to a Stampin Up party.  We made this cute little angel.
We also made a beautiful Christmas card but I can't post it as my bff would see it  and she might be the recipient of it!
Today went back by Mom and she is feeling better and ate better too.  (She must have had a b.m.  When you are older, it seems it is all about the b.m!)  We went for a walk around the halls and spent the afternoon watching TV.  When Momma is happy, I'm happy!
