Happy Thanksgiving

I don’t know where 2014 has gone, but Thanksgiving is just a day and
half away.  I love turkey!  There is a commercial for a sandwich meat
talking about how if you do this or that “you may be a turkitarian…”  I
am pretty sure I am a turkitarian.  I think the only one I have ever
seen love turkey as much as I do is the dad from “Christmas Story” and
the Bumpuses’
dogs
.  Usually we do Christmas as our house and my sister
hosts Thanksgiving.  This year Tim’s mom and brother are coming to town
for Thanksgiving so we decided to do Thanksgiving here instead.  Tim has
been working a lot on weekends and evenings to get the dining room
table done.  He had a neighbor help bring it in today.  It came out sooo
pretty!  It is going to be perfect for hosting a family Thanksgiving.

We
pick up Tim’s mom tomorrow and then my sisters, their families, and my
grandpa will join us on Thursday.  My mom and John are out to sea this
year, and my brother and his gang have other plans.  It will still be a
nice gathering of family.  Casey is excited to play with her cousin
Riley. 

Casey is still having a lot of tummy issues
and can’t seem to get over cdiff.  We saw the doctor again yesterday and
he ordered some follow up labs.  We see another doctor in about a week
to talk about the next step.  Until we talk with her, we don’t really
have enough information to share.  Hopefully we will have a new plan and
some answers soon.  Listening to her tummy rumble and cleaning up these
awful diapers is no fun at all- for any of us. 

Casey
is loving Girl Scouts (or Daisies).  She is going to be selling cooking
mid-January.  Be sure to let us know if you want to buy some so we can
request enough in our supply.  January will be here before you know it. 
Christmas is only a month away!!!!  I need to get moving on shopping. 

It
seems that last week everything that could break, did break.  The pool
cracked, the last Medela (the good suction machine) broke, the sensors
on our van tires have gone crazy, and I think there were a few other
small things too.  Luckily the pool guy came right out and they are
working to get it fixed ASAP.  We got another type of suction machine. 
It’s not as light or easy to carry around, but it works and this one is
covered by insurance (and available in the US without paying import
taxes).  So yes, things broke, but it wasn’t the end of the world.  We
still have a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.  We are focusing
on the good stuff, and there is lots of it.  

We
hope that everyone has a safe and happy Thanksgiving.  We will post
more after the doctor appointment with details on what’s next in the
battle against cdiff (I’m not sure if it’s still a battle or if we can
call is a war now?).
