Anyone here ever have loved ones hospitalized on major holidays?

When my dad's body was in the morgue one Thanksgiving, I would have given anything to have taken care of others' loved ones while my dad and family were home celebrating Thanksgiving without me.

I had shared custody of my oldest kids since they were 2 and 3. I leaned more than 20 yrs ago how to enjoy the celebration on alternate days and my family, bless them, adapted as well. To have a family that made sure to get together with a dinner that rivaled anything served on the 3rd Thursday in Nov and Dec 25th so that my children and I could experience a full family holiday meant more than the traditional calendar day.

Very nice attitude of both you and your family. Alternate celebrations can be just as much fun or more. Keep it up. linda
