I'm thankful that I have a good leg to stand on, and 2 good arms. I am thankful for my parents who take such good care of me, and my wonderful husband who has gone way beyond in sickness and in health, for richer for poorer. I am so thankful for my beautiful daughters, grandson and son-in-law. It is so good to have a kind, honest man be married to my daughter.

I am thankful for my friends, my extended family including my brother and sister-in-law who also do so much, my nieces, great-nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and the whole crew. I am very grateful for my father-in-law and mother-in-law who have been so very kind.

My friend Kay sent me this book several weeks ago. I read the first chapter and laid it aside. I picked it back up this week and it was a page turner. I am also thankful for Peggy Poe Stern who gives me so many hours of entertainment. Better Off Dead is a real thriller about a female assassin who is sent to Newland, NC on an assignment. I finished the book in less than 24 hours even with naps. I am anxiously awaiting the sequel.

My nephrology appointment wasn't very enlightening. I did have many blood and urine tests ordered. Dr. Kfoury says she cannot tell me much until my parathyroid scan and these lab results are back. My body was not cooperative today and I ended up with 11 needle sticks to get the required blood. I had been on a roll of getting everything with 1 stick but that seems to have ended.

Scott is hard at work injecting and rubbing the turkey for tomorrow. We have deep fried turkey every year and it is delicious. I am looking forward to a decadent meal.
