I guess I could say that this year I hosted my first Thanksgiving Dinner - although it was BYOE (Bring your own EVERYTHING) and thanks to my in-laws they covered it all...

Thanksgiving at the hospital actually turned out to be perfect (considering our situation). After all we are never planning on spending another holiday here so this was a once in a lifetime opportunity.


Mason continues to feel better and better each day. His drainage from his chest tube has slowed but not to the level that they feel comfortable removing it. So we stay and wait!

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
