Another One Bites the Dust

So the illness that struck Guapo with a vengeance last week has systematically taken out each and every member of our family. As soon as Guapo was back up on his feet, he became the very competent male-nurse to myself and Julio (6 yrs). And just today, Margarita (8 yrs) and Juan Carlos (3 yrs) appear to have succumbed to the disease.

Mine ended up turning into bronchitis before I got on antibiotics. Coughing fits and pregnancy just really aren't a pretty combination.

Our Thanksgiving trip to the beach has been pushed back a day to ensure that I can make it through the airport with the three kids without passing out. I'm going to have to administer some significant amounts of cough depressant before we get on the plane or we are going to be HATED. Wish me luck!

And now, my one and only Thanksgiving decoration. It's a part of my latest Big City find: pewter. Check out this awesome turkey platter:

On that final note- Happy Thanksgiving!

Hope you are feeling better soon...any sickness and pregnancy stinks, but bronchitis sounds particularly icky.

Oh and very cool turkey platter.

Happy Thanksgiving!

ugh, you'd think you could get a pregnancy exemption from icky stuff like that. I hope your trip goes well. Just make sure it's not a cough suppressant that wires them, too.

Let my clarify, what beach? I hope you are feeling better. There is nothing worse than been sick, pregnant and traveling.

Male-nurse...YES!!! Way to go Guapo.

That platter is beautiful, did you get it in Big City? I usually don’t like platters with turkey motifs (don’t know why, just weird I guess), but I can see me having that one.

I wish you luck and a great Thanksgiving my BOFF!

I hope you all get better soon so you can enjoy the holidays. Love the turkey. It is a pity they make platters so pretty...you hate to put anything on them and cover it up.
