I just wanted to stop in and say Happy Thanksgiving to all. Sorry for my absence in the past few days, we had to take my grandmother back to the hospital again on Monday night. This time instead of her blood pressure being too low, it was to high. She came home yesterday afternoon and is now feeling better now that they have done an adjustment on her medications. I have been up since 4:30 this morning and the house is now smelling like a turkey. Aw, the smells of Thanksgiving.....o.k. now that I am out of my turkey enduced trance. I better get off of here and get busy.

My family wishes all of you a Happy & Safe Thanksgiving!
