As you can see from Laurie's response, we have a lot of very helpful people here! Spend a little time looking over the index. You will see that we have a forum for poultry, and we also have one on food safety.

Ouch, on all accounts! I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Take care of that foot, even if it means making them take you out for Thanksgiving dinner this year! Or you could plunk yourself into your favorite chair, put your foot up, and pass out some aprons and recipes!

Nope get the fresh so I can cook them, on and on and on..Right this minute I could just scream..I'm weak as hell and don't even want to do this..Am I being a poop or what? While he is gone I'm going to try and nap for a few minutes...My daughter should be here soon and I know she will help but it will be another round of questions..What I wouldn't give to hide for a week..Thanks for listening guys..hugs,

No you are not being a poop. I'll give you the same advice--sit down and pass out aprons and recipes. You don't feel well, and this year you should sit down and relax (I know, I know!) and let them wait on you for a change.

Thank you for being so helpful Laurie!

I hope you feel better! Did you give that, "I meant to do that" look that we all seem to do when we do things like that? I remember hitting a patch of ice and falling in someone's driveway in Minnesota. I would have preferred sitting there for at least 30 seconds crying and feeling sorry for myself, but of course I got up with that sheepish look on my face, and walked on!

Bummer, Pancho! Ebay has some orange ones, and a few of them are vintage. Affordable, though.

Awww, Susan, I'm so sorry. I know, it's VERY difficult.

I hope tomorrow will be a better day for you.

I didn't see this because it switched to another page while I was posting.

I'm so sorry you are having to deal with this. It has to be so hard for you. You have my prayers sweetie.

I have seen far to much illness while caring for my parents. My father had such an ugly death--it was so unfair as he was such a kind, generous and giving person. I hated watching him suffer and now, I am watching a different kind of ugly death. 12 years of caregiving is a verylong long.

PS,
I know your pain..Both my parents are gone now, but it was hard trying to take care of them...Let mom sleep sweetie and just sit and look at her and the peace on her face as she rests..Be glad she isn't suffering as she sleeps. Prayers and good thoughts for you and her.
