T-Day

(Ryan, Joel, Jason, Nick, Griffin, Jessica, Me, Raeleen and Blake with our crowns on at dinner)

Well Thanksgiving has come and gone. It was good this year...for everyone else. I was terribly sick on Turkey Day and the whole week, so I pretty much just wanted to die the whole time. It was horrible. I was feeling so nauseous, that was the worst part. I was nauseous, had a headache, sore throat, body aches and pains, a fever, a horrible cough, throwing up, other potty issues and every day I woke up with a new symptom. Finally Thanksgiving night, I gave up and called the doctor. Of course she said I needed to come in the next day. It wouldn't have been a problem except we don't have any health insurance till mid-December. I went anyway. She told me I had Bronchitis. She gave me cough syrup with an ingredient to ease my nausea..success! She also gave me an inhaler and antibiotics. I am feeling back to normal now. The only problem is that I still have zero appetite, which makes me feel really lethargic since I literally have not been eating at all. I am SO SO glad to be almost over it though. It was the worst sick I have been as an adult.

So all that being said, I am actually pretty glad that I got sick over Thanksgiving. My mom helped me out ginormously in the days before my in-laws got here. My mom cleaned my whole house for me. I could not lift a finger. I spent most of the week in bed, so luckily Jason's siblings were here to keep Griffin busy and entertained. I was able to come downstairs for about an hour on Thanksgiving to greet my family and try to eat. My family came over to my house and I could barely stay in the room. We had 18 people here in all for a couple of hours. I am so happy that they came, even though I didn't get to see them a whole lot. The food looked great. The dining room looked awesome. And I thought it turned out nicely. I hope you had a great Thanksgiving too.
