Tomorrow is the big day! Judy and family are flying from Phoenix into Nashville, TN. Harry will pick them up in the afternoon when they arrive. They will be here late in the day and we'll be waiting with open arms. Let the fun begin.
I'm pretty much ready. Yesterday I went to a mega bake sale and will go to another early tomorrow. Both are being done by large churches and have loads of good stuff. I'm depending on the sales to take care of at least some of the cooking. Harry is doing a big barbecue one day and I'll 'do' Thanksgiving dinner. The rest will fall in place. No hassle, no fuss, no worry.
I finally went to my doctor last evening. This crud just seemed to be getting worse. Breathing was beginning to be a bit of a problem. No fever, not feeling sick, no pain except the usual, and no other symptoms except coughing and feeling that I wasn't getting enough air. I was shocked speechless when the doctor told me I was having a significant asthma attack. This is a new development. No one in my family ever had asthma and I'm really not familiar with it. Doctor said to just take the meds and get through the next two weeks. I should be significantly better by tomorrow. After that we'll do tests (whatever that means) to determine the cause and future treatment (if any is indicated). I ain't gonna Google this - I'd probably just lay down, moan, and groan if I did. As it is I feel fine.
The good news is that this is in no way a threat to anyone else. Based on the doctor it's not something the children or anyone else will 'catch'.
I'll post as much as I can during the next few days but I will think of you and pray that you are well and enjoying the first holiday of the season. I'll say in advance that I'm thankful for each of you, my blogging buddies.
