I know it has nothing to do with the thread but I think we all have a lot to be thankful for. Some of us the fact that we can even celebrate the wonderful holiday with our families is great. I for one missed many birthdays and holidays in the hospital this past summer do to my health. I am thankful for all the posting I have read on here because they have helped my in many ways.
Just wanted you all to know how thankful I am to have found this site.
Thank you and hope you all have a very Happy Thanksgiving with your families.

No that is not dumb.  I spent 8 weeks on TPN this summer and could not eat anything,
When the doctor told me I could eat, he asked me what I wanted and I told him my mothers Chicken Dumplings  (and I am 51). Yeah, I am thankful to be able to eat Thanksgiving Dinner with my family.
