Thanksgiving was a crazy holiday. My sister-in-law was admitted to the hospital on Thanksgiving day. She has Crohn’s disease and has had increasingly bad flair ups. Needless to say that J’s parents and his brother didn’t make it to dinner either. J’s grandparents and uncle came, but left right after dinner so they could get to the hospital. Thanksgiving dinner was broken down and put into Tupperware almost as soon as it reached the table so that the family at the hospital could have something to eat. J’s sister is doing much better now, and is scheduled for surgery in two weeks to remove a large portion of her intestines that are inflamed.
On the bright side, my house is spotless with one small exception. My mom came into town on Monday and pretty much cleaned the house from top to bottom since I’m pretty much a useless lump and J’s work schedule is crazy. The only exception is that after dinner was broken down on Thanksgiving we still haven’t cleaned all the dishes. We still have a pot that’s been soaking in the sink for about 2 days now. Maybe I’ll feel up to tackling it when I get home, but as my lunch is trying to work its way back up at the moment I’m kinda doubting that.
I hope that you all had a much better Thanksgiving and that it was peaceful and relaxing!
