Early Thanksgiving

Boy I have been super, super busy. So here's a quick update. I miss all my blogger friends and can't wait to be able to come around and read all of your blogs. I hope you all have a wonderful holiday.

We celebrated Thanksgiving early this year. We has our big dinner on Sunday for a very special reason. My sister was able to come home on a 10 hour leisure pass. For the first time since April 15th she was able to walk free and spend some time at home, with her family and most importantly, her daughter. We had a wonderful feast of Turkey, Pineapple Glazed Ham, Cheesy Jalepeno Mashed Potatoes, Dressing, Asparagus Casserole, Sweet Potato Casserole, Candied Yams, Rolls, Homemade Pecan and Pumpkin Pie. Yummy!

We had an awesome time with my sister. She is doing she well in this place and I'm really looking forward to her getting out and living a product, satisfying life. She says it's really hard there, they are in group from 5:30 am to 9:30 pm. They have no "personal" time. However, as hard as it is she's learning a lot and is excited about the next half of her treatment. The second half is focused more on her recovery and treatment plan. Just 3 more months and she will be home.

Nice to meet you, and look around your blog.

Sounds like very intense treatment, but sometimes that can be very helpful. I've worked in many treatment facilities with a variety of patients, and sometimes the structure works. Sometimes it doesn't. It can be alot to take.

Good luck with all that you have going on in life! Sounds like alot.
