Hi there, I am Kitt and I am not sure what your surgery was so all I can say is that I support you. I know a lot of facilities coming from MN so if you have a need of a clinic I may have some info.
As far as Thanksgiving, think of yourself, give yourself permission to stay at home and know that there will be plenty of people to eat the dinner. Your husband could go and bring you home a nice plate of food and some pie of course. :)
I have a sense that your physical problems and depression are closely entwined. That would be normal.

My wish for you is peace.
