Hello and welcome to my page! If you couldn't guess, my name is Cathy.We sold our home in Colorado and bought 13 acres of forested land on the edge of the Mark Twain National Forest here in southern Missouri. We don't have any children other than our cockatiels that we call our feathered puppies. :-))

August 2017 - We moved back to Colorado!! So happy to be back in my home state and to be near family again.

My husband and I make video games for a living from our home. We work well together and love that we get along so well.

Life has dealt me plenty of punches starting with my first surgery at the age of 5. At 9 I had a brain tumor removed that damaged my right optic nerve and destroyed my pituitary gland. As a result I'm legally blind in my right eye and have to take medicines for the rest of my life to make my body function normally. I've had multiple surgeries and broken bones over the years since then but I will not let anything stop me from becoming a better me physically and mentally.

    Cathy, I still have a cough but. They are starting to clear. I have to get better Ray is in the hospital right now. Friday he got a rusty nail in the ball of his foot. Well they cleaned it up gave him a tetnus shot, and antibiotics. The foot looked to be healing till today. We took the dressing off and fluid came out of the wound and the foot was warm to the touch and re around the wound. Back to ER his PCP referred him to another doctor. They think he has a bone infection. So he is now in the hospital on iv antibiotics. I need to go to bed soon cause I need to be back at the hospital early in the morning.

    Feel free to grab the pics of my hair if you want. The bottom part of the back has short layers that doesn't show up real good in the photo.

    Thank you so much for the balance board goodie. It's not been easy with my son, but I am not going to give up on him, and I will work hard on achieving a balance in my life. I hope your sinus headache has gone away! Have a great week! emoticon
