Welcome to my site! I am so excited to begin this journey, and even more excited to have you join me! My name is Annie. I am not going to tell you my exact age but I’m in my late 30s, although if you ask my kids I’m 29. I am a proud mom of 4. I have a 19 year old daughter, a 14 year old son, an 8 year old daughter and last is my 2 year old baby boy. They are my reason to keep fighting, my strength and my heart. I have a house filled with chaos but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
My real challenges began in July of 2008 when I was diagnosed with osteomyelitis. Osteomyelitis is an infection of the bone that causes inflammation, redness, swelling and other serious symptoms. I intend to get more in detail thru my blogs. To make a long story short the osteomyelitis never got better, in fact it progressed while I was in a hospital. A year later my 8 year old daughter was born, 5 weeks after she was born my femur broke in half. I had many other complications that came along with the osteomyelitis and the femur fracture over the years, none compared to being a mom while I’m sick. That brings a lot of challenges I never knew existed. I hope to allow my readers to learn about my challenges and my ability to overcome those same challenges.
