Happy Late Thanksgiving... The Stomach Bug Strikes again!

Since it has been exactly a week since Thanksgiving I thought it was about time to wish everyone a good one. I can't seem to catch up on my blog. Maybe one day!

We were exited and prepared to visit the Trevathan family in Tennessee on Thanksgiving day. I was not feeling the best Wednesday night at church but thought that it was my normal morning sickness that always seems worse at night. Around 10pm Wednesday night everything changed. Corey got really sick and then I followed him a few hours later. We were up all night. Thank goodness Will slept through the night! About 8am we decided to get in touch with my doctor who said that we should both head to the hospital. Corey to the ER and myself to Labor & Delivery. Praise the Lord for Mark and Debbie because we would not have made it without them. Debbie came and got Will for us and Mark took us to Crestwood. We ended up spending the whole day there. We both felt so bad for Mark & Debbie who not only missed Thanksgiving but had to babysit us all. Mark's Thanksgiving meal was crackers, Cheetos, & M&M's... that was for the whole day! The blessing was that no one else seemed to catch it including Will. We were so thankful!

We spent most of the weekend resting with exception to one very short shopping trip on Friday... nothing could keep me from such a good deal on a new washer & dryer. This is our Christmas gift to each other. We must be getting old to be excited about such a thing. Although, I am not sure Corey is as excited as I am! Then on Saturday we had fun cheering on our Auburn Tigers. War Eagle! We really enjoyed watching the game with Corey's family.

We had all planned to visit the Trevathan family on Sunday since we missed them Thursday. I had a change of plans when I woke up not feeling the best that morning. Dr. Conrad, my obgyn, saw me at church that morning and told me that it would be very easy to relapse and get sick again. I had no idea that you could relapse from something like that! So I spent the day resting while the rest of the crew went for a visit. I am still waiting for turkey and dressing... does anyone have any leftovers???

We will just have to make another turkey and have you guys over!

I'm glad that you are feeling much better. I know that it is so hard on you being sick all of the time and that stomach bug made it even worse. Hopefully that all day sickness will be ending soon!

I am so sorry that you guys were sick. I was at HH 7th floor. Glad that you are feeling better and that you got a good deal at the sales.

Sorry you missed the family celebration! Glad you are feeling better~ leftovers! We could take Sunny's advice and have a potluck Tgiving all over again! :)


Sorry ya'll were sick. That's no fun...especially during the holidays when you're supposed to be having fun and eating good food. Hope you're all better now. Sorry no leftovers here, either. Thanksgiving potluck sounds good anytime. :) Dr. Conrad always surprised me with different things that he said and told me to do. I would definitely listen to what he says, though. He knows his stuff. :)
