The day before Thanksgiving I got a migraine but was able to rest most of the day which was good. Thanksgiving morning I was getting the Turkey ready (with my mom and sister helping) and Joey texted me (he was upstairs) and said “E just threw up a lot” so I ran upstairs to help. When I saw the big mess all over E and Joey, I yelled downstairs to make sure they were okay and put E in the bath while Joey changed all of his clothes. The rest of the day, E didn’t eat very much but I made sure he drank a lot. I also started praying that nobody else would get sick – especially all of our guests coming.
After E woke up from his nap, he just sat in Opa’s arms – he did not feel well
After Joey took the Turkey out of the oven, Christene, my mom and I hurried and got everything else ready.
I couldn’t have done it without their help! Unfortunately I didn’t get any more pictures of the food. How sad is that? But it all turned out delicious.
Friday E woke up and seemed to be feeling better. I was relieved. Saturday morning Joey threw up and I started to not feel so good. I wanted to cry. Sunday, today, we all seem to be doing a little bit better. Whew. What a weekend!
