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.

Coming out of Mourning!

I am coming out of my mourning fog (get it?).  The sun has been shining the last two days and it has made a HUGE difference in my attitude.
 
Thursday I went to a baseball game with my sister and the Senior Center.  What an exciting game.  A lot of yelling (it was kid's day at the park).  A winning hit in the bottom of the 9th...yeah!
 

 
So glad Brewer Stadium has a dome!  It was 45° and at time drizzling.
 
(The weather man reported last night that the next three months will be cooler than average here.)
 
Friday I went to Jazzercise...that makes twice this week.  I am starting all over and trying to get my life back to normal.
