Happy Thanksgiving

It was hard for us to be away from Kevin for Thanksgiving and just wasn't the same. Uncle Rick has been here on the hill taking care of Grammy and things around the house while we were gone. He stepped up to the plate this year and made our Thanksgiving dinner happen.

 (The turkey was beautiful and tasted even better than it looks!)

(Gravy is usually Kevin's Thanksgiving contribution so there was a question if we'd actually be able to make it without him, luckily Dale rescued us)

Unfortunately Kevin's hospital Thanksgiving dinner was not as delicious as ours but Kevin's physical therapist's daughter who is a talented musician brought her 8 string acoustic guitar and played along with a CD of her music group. He really enjoyed the concert but the best part was that the concert was down on the 11th floor were his "partner in crime" Dennis is. Kevin & Dennis were finally able to visit and I am so bummed that I wasn't there to get pictures. What a wonderful Thanksgiving surprise!

Speaking of Dennis I was thrilled to read this post on Dennis' blog this morning...
GOOD NEWS TODAY!  Yes, the biopsy results were finally in today and showed that Dennis' liver was healthy.  This was a big hurdle to overcome, as no further treatment could be done if his liver was not healthy enough.  Dennis was also "released" from ICU today and back to his old floor.  We know its not going to be an easy road ahead and the doctors have told Dennis he needs to get stronger - ie, eat, walk, exercise the lungs, etc - We are optimistic that at least there is hope for further treatment ahead.  Thanks to all for your prayers, good vibes, thoughts, etc.  We are truly thankful this Thanksgiving for all our friends and family - we love you and wish you and all your loved ones a very Happy Thanksgiving.

We have so much to be Thankful for this year! Our biggest blessings are YOU our amazing family and friends who have continued to support and sustain us throughout our daily hurdles through your love and prayers. You have blessed our lives in every way and we will be eternally grateful to you all for that. We love you and wish you and your families joy and peace this holiday season.
