Medical Monday {December, Vol. 2}

Oh, my friends!

I am still recovering from Thanksgiving! You, too?

I love every single item on the Thanksgiving menu, but after three days of leftovers, I can turkey no more.

Like every Thanksgiving since my mother's cancer diagnosis (she's 8 years cured, thank God!), I hosted the holiday. I brined, roasted, baked, whisked, cooked, cooked, cooked, and cooked. Then, I cooked some more. I cleaned, ironed, decorated, and smiled while doing it all for my in-laws enjoyment. I love my in-laws, but, thanks to a terrible bought of insomnia, I was beyond tired.

This Thanksgiving Doc H was "off". Yet, he sat at his computer for three hours to return study results to patients. I hope his patients realize he was "OFF" and realize the email was sent on a holiday. I hope they fully appreciate his dedication. I hope they send a bottle of wine and label it, "TO: DOC H'S WIFE". That would be the bomb, and THAT would be appreciated!

You all know what day it is, so let's start the party!!

  1. Happy Medical Monday.... your holiday sounds exhausting. We got off easy this year, but I have a feeling our turn for hosting is coming soon.

  2. Yay! Excited for another month of medical Mondays :) Our thanksgiving was a nightmare we flew to our inlaws who passed on a nasty stomach bug that prevented my husband from making his flight home yesterday. He had to call in sick for the second time only in 7 years, cancel his clinic and cases. He just made it back now fingers crossed he's better tomorrow. December can only get better right lol?!

  3. Happy Medical Monday week :)
    Hope you had a great Thanksgiving with your family!

  4. Happy Medical Monday, er, Wednesday! Your Thanksgiving story sounds very familiar, although this year I visited my American family without Dr H.
