Thankful Day 21: Health

This time last year I was lying on the couch sobbing into a pillow because I was SUPPOSED to be going to Ohio for Thanksgiving but I was too busy throwing up from pain and worrying my husband was going to think I was faking it to get out of seeing his family. I was also 35 weeks pregnant. I ended up in the hospital and spent the actual holiday having surgery to remove a kidney stone.

It was the worst Thanksgiving ever. I never got a single piece of pumpkin pie.

This year, we are with family. This year, I am healthy. This year my kidneys are behaving themselves. This year I have two perfect outside babies. This year I am going to eat a TON of pumpkin pie.

    Thanks for this post. It’s a good reminder that not only am I lucky in the greater sense, but I’m also doing far better than last year. Last year I had a two week old and couldn’t feed him the way i needed to. In addition to all the other normal new mom stuff. We skipped thanksgiving and Christmas last year. This year, we are hosting thanksgiving dinner at our house for our fellow Spokane “orphans”. I too will eat lots of pumpkin pie. And Carmel pie. And stuffing. And sweet potatoes. I could go on.

  5. If I liked pumpkin pie I would join you.

    But so glad you’re not barfing this year… barf sucks.
