Thanksgiving was kind of weird this year. Normally we’ll do Thanksgiving with my folks, and Christmas with my wife’s family. However my Dad got really sick and spent Thanksgiving in the hospital, turns out that he had two heart attacks and is now diabetic. He’s doing okay right now, but it having to adjust to some serious life changing things, like giving himself shots and having to carefully watch everything he eats.
This wasn’t really a shock, as he’s been really overweight, under stress, and in poor shape for a long time, but when you hear that kind of thing, it just bowls you over. We went down and visited. Seeing the grandkids cheered him up. So this year, I’m just thankful that Dad is still with us.
