I am grateful to be here to celebrate another Thanksgiving, and quite thankful for the friends I have found here on Marrowforums!

Wishing you all safe travels and a wonderful holiday!

Hey Cheri!

I was just thinking it might be nice to put up a Thanksgiving greeting -- and wouldn't you know, you'd beat me to it!

I hope you have a truly great one.

And I hope all you BMFWs (Bone Marrow Failure Warriors) have a wonderful holiday, complete with family, friends, turkey, tofurkey, or whomever and whatever you chose for your celebration.

Personally, I expect to use the outrageously pleasant weather here in NC to clean up the garden, rake a few leaves, and use those to start a new compost pile -- and to be grateful my ANC count is high enough to engage in such sport.

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

"Back at you! And, like you, Greg, I'm enjoying this unusually warm weather in western NC. My husband and I have learned so much this year from your website! Also, the help from Birgitta and Neil, and others who are :continuing to do research! I'm also thankful for the drug "Dacogen" that continues to work for me!

Remember - Cranberry sauce is red. Eat a lot of it. It can't hurt.:D

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Last Thanksgiving I was in the hospital getting conditioning chemo for my BMT. One week from today will be my first rebirthday! I am very thankful to be here.

Happy Thanksgiving! I'm doing an expat feast at the weekend since we don't get the day off work here. :)

So I celebrated in my own way with a quick 5km run this morning instead! Thanksgiving 2008 I was too ill to barely walk anywhere, and Thanksgiving 2009 wasn't much better with my daily antifungal IVs, so I make sure I'm thankful for every healthy second I've got these days.

Happy Thanksgiving to one and all my fellow Bone Marrow Failure survivors. We're still here aren't we?:D

Happy Thanksgiving & Holidays to all my marrow friends :o). I'm happy every day I wake up and feel good enough to do anything, either go to work, or have a pj day on my day off! Best of luck to all of you & here's hoping 2012 will be a healthier one for all of us!
