Turkey Interrupted...

Originally the plan was that Didier and I would meet my parents at the summer home on PEI for Thanksgiving to close it up for the season, but then due to Dad's chemo he is not allowed to travel, at all. So that was out.

We were then gonna go fly down and visit for thanksgiving, but we couldn't find any half decent airfare. (There ain't nothing fare about airfare) For what it would have cost we could have gone to Europe and back!

Finally though, we found some tickets that would not negate our intended retirement at the age of 65. So, we're flying down in two weeks and going to have our Thanksgiving then.

On a side note, Dad is doing well, all things considered. His Doctor is more than satisfied with how his body is reacting to the treatments. The only down to this is that a week ago he got some bone marrow test results back and it seems there are traces of the lymphoma in his marrow. And like you would imagine that's not good. Technically he should now, not been admitted to the clinical trial as it was meant for only stage 1-3 patients and with the marrow results he's technically stage 4. This was apparently known to the Trial Dr's and head Nurse prior though, so until he goes in next Tuesday, we can only assume that because it was only trace amounts, that they let him participate.

Fingers crossed to Tuesday.

But because I cannot wait for a good turkey dinner, Didier and I are having a few friends over tomorrow for turkey and all the fixin's!

For those of you in Turkey-Mode, be it today, or tomorrow, in two weeks or in November, (a la America) I wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving and hope that you are sharing it with those you're truly thankful to have in your life, that's what it's all about.

The turkey feast went great, if I do say so myself, and I do! And even better than my first turkey was dessert... A traditional ingredient in a less than traditional format... (kinda like me! HAH!) It was Pumpkin Trifle and it KICKED SERIOUS THANKSGIVING ASS!

Thanks to all for their gobbley-good wishes! Hope y'all (and yours) had a great day...
