Wow! The year has gone by so fast. This has definitely been an eventful year for us.
In January we found out that Ryan has a gluten sensitivity so we started the gluten free diet.
In May I became seriously ill and was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. I did not respond to treatment so my doctor started the referral process for the Mayo Clinic. BUT, I lost my insurance and then I lost my job. Mayo won't see me without a way to pay! But, that's OK. Really. While I am still pretty sick, I am not as bad as I was back in May. I am learning how to keep myself hydrated when I am at my worst.
I may not have a job, but I am starting to earn some money. I even paid my own car insurance this month! Baby steps!
In October I started this blog. I can't believe how well it has been received and I am thankful for all of you for that.
I have great kids. I have spectacular grandsons. I have wonderful, supportive friends. I have a kitty that alternately loves me and then wants to kill me. All in all it's been a pretty great year! I am looking forward to 2012! How about you?
