Wonderful Thanksgiving!

I was afraid that our Thanksgiving was not going to be a good time. My aunt is still sick and has been in and out of the hospital for several weeks now. It is to the point that the hospital said they cannot do anything else for her. (She has liver failure.) She was sent home from the hospital on Black Friday and Hospice was called in. My mama and my aunt Lois are looking after her. The whole situation is very sad and very stressful on both of them. Now to get to the good part. I cooked for everyone on Sunday. This gave hubby time to go to his families house and I knew that mama was at the hospital all day on Thursday. I invited the older kids and my sisters and my parents. I was very happy when my youngest sister, my parents and my oldest son all showed up. My son Anthony, who is stationed in Alaska, called and talked to all of us for well over an hour. At the end of the day, I was very happy. We enjoyed our time together and I like to think that mama got a break and a chance to rest. How was your Thanksgiving holiday?

I've been praying for your family but I think the only thing I can pray for now is that your aunt does not suffer and that her sisters get a much needed rest. I hope the stress you must be undergoing has been relieved a little this holiday.

You've been MIA so I thought I'd leave another note just in case. Hope all is well.

@rebelann thank you so much. Thanks for the prayers. My aunt is driving both my mama and my aunt Lois crazy. The stress is way too much on them and I am afraid that their health is going to give out before long.

I hope this doesn't sound cruel @Shellyann36 but maybe they should consider a nursing facility for her before they both end up in the hospital, it is so very hard to take care of people who are dying and I am sure Lois and your mom are in desperate need of R&R. Have either of them checked with the state human resources to find out if they can get some help that way? Maybe hospice?

I was looking for a discussion I haven't read and found this one. You Thanksgiving sounded wonderful for you to take over for the whole family while there was sadness about your aunt. You have a kind and big heart - looks good on you!

I am glad that you have enjoyed the past Thanksgiving. I am very sorry about your aunt, I hope she does not suffer. We do not celebrate Thanksgiving, it was a normal working day here.

@LadyDuck thank you so much. I am afraid that my aunt does suffer but my mama and aunt Lois are possibly suffering more.

Scrolling back through your posts to find one I haven’t read and found this one. Already just about time for Thanksgiving again! I am trying to think of what to make for Thanksgiving dinner this year. I always try to make at least one new recipe.

I had a good Thanksgiving with most of the family present at my brother's house. I like that you could bless your family by doing the meal for them.
