Belated Bird

With Ann's stepfather in the ICU we spent Thanksgiving eve in San Diego. Yesterday we made the trip home and were running pretty low on morale and mental acuity. We are VERY Thankful today that he pulled thru after a series of resuscitation efforts.  The prognosis though, is not good...pancreatic cancer in an advanced stage. Just a month or two ago he made the run up to Los Angeles for Ann's birthday...and only found out last week that there was a problem. When we first got word of the problem on Wednesday evening...the initial report was that he had died. It was only after an amazing effort from the docs that he made it this far.
Tonight we celebrated Thanksgiving with a belated turkey. Gotta say though....too much work in the kitchen for the 15 minutes of fame. I will leave you with the list for our crew of four:

  • Turkey (obviously)
  • Mashed Potatoes
  • Gravy
  • Homemade Bread
  • Stuffing
  • Corn
  • Candied Yams
  • Beef and Homemade Noodles
  • Tomato Sauce (for the noodles of course)
  • Cranberries
  • Cranberry Bread
  • Chocolate Cake
  • Sugar Cookies
  • Homemade Fudge
  • Chocolate Chip Cookies
  • Gingerbread Cookies (my Grandma's recipe)
And all of that on the heels of Tata's hospitalization. My sweetheart is one amazing girl.
In the end...I was the first to bail from the table, can you guess who was last?
