Illinois Spinal Care
Well, my visits to Illinois Spinal Care are paying off! My shoulder is pretty much pain free and I have almost my full range of motion back. There's just one small spot that needs work. The fringe benefit is that Dr. Darrin fixed the ache in my lower back when it was so sore from coughing all night, and . . . yesterday he fixed the ache in my jaw and I didn't even tell him about it. Somehow, he could tell. It's like magic! Dr. Darrin Redinger is on the right in center picture. Dr. Travis Bertke, on the left is his partner. They are both so nice, and friendly, while also being very professional. I thought I had pretty good posture, but the x-rays they took show otherwise. I'm glad to be working on this now, before it gets really bad.
Graduated from Lake Park H S in Medinah, went to secretarial school, worked a few years, married and had 3 great kids. I have 2 grandsons, 4 grand dogs (Griffons)& 2 grand cats (Maine Coon). When my first 2 children were in grade school I was a professional volunteer, active in PTA, Elmhurst Children’s Theatre & Church stuff. I started a small business while expecting my third and have been working ever since. I'm a fibre artist combining cloth, yarn, and photography. Carolee Creations, Inc. is the corporate name - SewSweet Dolls was the first business. Portrait Pillows, Bags and more . . . is my latest venture, started in ‘98, after my husband died. My daughter and I make custom gift items incorporating photographs - purses, coasters, jewelry, ornaments, quilts, etc. I love going to work every day-my studio is full of fun things! I am in a serious relationship with Bob, a retired Psychology prof, since the beginning of the century. We are involved in activities at First Church and in Elmhurst. When we have time we like to travel. I take sewing classes when I can fit them in, recently learned to weave, and would like to draw and paint again someday.
