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.

The Latest News

Well, lots happening here.  The temperature is still -3°  (don't want to know what it is with the wind chill).  Oh, just heard the wind chill brings it to -22°  (Lovely, just lovely!)  I am debating whether I want to go to Jazzercise and get in a cold car after.  My heater doesn't warm up all that fast.
 
That brings me to my news:  We bought the car!  The red Impala!  Woo hoo!  It will be so nice to have a dependable car and a good heater and A/C this summer!
 
I worked at the Senior Center on Wednesday.  I am not the best on the phone (I forgot to disconnect), but excel at putting policy binders together.  I enjoy feeling useful, even folding towels there.  They were getting ready for a Valentine cookie sale.  Of course I had to buy some, to help the center you know.
 
Our son got his tax return and it is rather nice since  he can deduct his college loan.  He is treating us to a night out Saturday.  (We treat him the rest of the year!)
 
That's the news.  I am still having weird dreams and sleepless nights, so would appreciate prayers that I could get myself on a good sleep pattern.

Can't wait for a ride in the new red car! We do need to support the senior center too!
