HAPPY AMERICAN THANKSGIVING Nov. 22 2007

  1. Good morning almost! Hope you have a great day today no matter what you're doing!

    I am thankful for my wonderful year. For marvelous family members and for healing that God has begun or has accomplished between us! For my wonderful friends, some of whom are AN members! for the benefits of being an American! For my God who, no matter how bad my circumstances, has always provided!! For my health! For a beautiful gift in May, 1987!!! (My ds). For my cat who reminds me to feed her! (Wait - some kind of irony there...)... For so so much

    We did our project on therapeutic hypothermia.
    Sounds like it was great fun, wish I had seen it!

    Snooty witch; where did THAT comment come from ??? You sure she wasn't kidding? Cuz that was awful RUDE!

    You too Don and hope to see more of you while you're on break!

    happy thanksgiving, everyone! :d

    dh wanted to go out to dinner, then changed his mind. didn't really matter to me, since it's so rare that we have the holiday off together, i just want to be able to relax for a day with him.

    we're staying home and having a nice baked ham, sweet and mashed potatoes, brussels sprouts, and pumpkin pie (or apple) for dessert.

    i'm thankful that he's here. alive, i mean. he had a heart attack this year and has recovered nicely.

    it's been a rough year. other things happened, but like any difficulty, it's passing and we're still standing.

    so it'll be a great day no matter what, and i wish you all god's blessings as well.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    I am exhausted and should be sleeping, but I drank regular Pepsi at about 20:00. I'm paying now. Ds has been miserable since we came from dh's aunt's house. He's still a little stuffy and when he cries his nose turns into a faucet; which he then rubs all over my shoulder. Blech! I don't gross out easily, but having someone else's boogers/snot on me does it. Even when I'm at work and have someone with a trach, at least it's not rubbed on me.

    We're off to db's early. I can't wait to see some of my sibs that I haven't seen in months. Won't they be surprised to see ds! After we eat we'll head back to Pittsburgh to dh's aunt's again. His other aunt is in town and is ill so he wants to spent time with her while we can. It's going to be nice to have someone else chase after the boy besides me.

    Angie-Thanks for the Turkey Day wishes!

    Zbb-I copied your Snoopy/Woodstock pic. They're my favorite. Is it a Snoopy by Everhart? It's similar, but the colors seem softer than what he usually uses.

    Grace-Thank you for celebrating in spirit.

    Everyone else to come-Have a beautiful day!

    Angie-You definitely have much to be thankful for. Enjoy your time off with dh. There's something to be said about staying in . . . .

    Diary-Enjoy your dinner! Do you guys get holiday pay? Some of our travellers did and some didn't. If you do, enjoy that too.
