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.

Pumpkin Patch Fun!

Lately I have been sleeping worse than usual.  Strange dreams again and again!  Otherwise, feeling good ...how about you?
Darn near froze my tookus off yesterday!  It is in the 40's here.  Brrrrrrrr! Went to Polly's Pumpkin Patch with my bff and her grandkids (my nieces and nephews).
There was a hay ride, the corn maze, the duck races, corn cannons and horsey races.
 It was cold, started to drizzle, but hey, I don't have any grandkids, and it was fun to see them having fun!

the kids are smiling and that is what matters. I think everyone had fun even in the cold weather.

I had to break down and turn the furnace on early for me. I guess we are going to have a long winter since it'a already started
