Over the last week or so, the doctor's visits have continued. Finally was able to get the sonogram of my kidneys done........Continued with the digestive problems. Gastroenterologist put me on 3 different medications..... which have given me a lot of relief, but still have not solved the problem totally. Appointment with foot doctor Monday AM, and then with Gastroenterologist Monday PM.
Went with Rich to the Florida Joint and Spine Institute on Monday ( doctor told him he could not drive). Dr. Sonni gave him steroid shot in his back for the pain. He is feeling 100% better! Lifting, cleaning the boat, walking - not bothering him at all now. So Thankful.😇
Thursday was Thanksgiving........but we would not having our Holiday Dinner until Friday.........so it was stuffed shells, salad and garlic bread for dinner.
And we did our baking for Friday.
Rich made his three pumpkin pies......(And finished one whole pie before bedtime!!!! Krystal ( who would be coming for dinner is required to eat "gluten free" which meant no pie...........so I did up a batch of chocolate and peanut butter fudge.
Thanksgiving dinner was planned for 4:00pm on Friday, and Nathan and Krystal, and Buddy and Dianne arrived just after 2:00. ( And even Miss Ava came along) They brought with them 3 bottles of wine, White Zin, Pinot Grigio and Chardonnay...... and we pulled out the eggnog and Cinnamon Whiskey!
Sat, relaxed with a beverage, laughed and caught up on "what's new". Even the guys were busy in the kitchen. Rich found a "new" way to carve the Turkey..... while Buddy supervised, Buddy was topping off the sweet potato casserole with marshmallows for the final bake, and Nathan was making sure every one's beverages of choice were refilled!
And then we enjoyed a very delicious dinner! Turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, sausage stuffing and regular stuffing ( Dianne can't eat pork), sweet potato casserole, green bean casserole, carrots, cranberry sauce and warm biscuits.
The pies and candy for dessert! Buddy made a delicious Coconut Pie!
It was after 6:00 when everyone said their goodbye's. Feeling Blessed and Thankful.
