    Not really any story, no. Sometimes i'll come across cool pictures or sketches online that I'd like to try drawing or improving on, and save them to my computer. So when it came time to pick an avatar, I had this picture ready.

    Gahh, every time I look at your puppies it makes me want to squeal! They're sooo cute, i kinda wanna ruffle their ears a little, hehe.
    How are you today?

About Gizmo

Basic Information

About Gizmo
I was diagnosed with SLE and Sjogrens in 1999, when I was 35. My youngest daughter has UDCD, Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, hemiplegic migraines and dysautonomia and is not able to attend college due to her illness. I am an RN, but worked as a volunteer coordinator in the schools for 10 years. Five years ago my daughter's health was so bad we couldn't leave her home alone, and I have been a stay home mom/nurse ever since.
FFA Alumni, reading, caring for our 4 llamas
