Since you have already made plans and you know where the children are going, you could check to see if your friends have room in their freezer and put your things there now. That would be one less thing you would need to worry about. For my college age son I make pizza that he can take back and freeze till needed. I also make taco meat that he can keep frozen as well. He is also a big sweets guy so I make cookies and brownies and put serving sizes in ziplocks to freeze. Hope this helps.

Last year at Thanksgiving--pre-diagnosis--I was so dizzy that preparing dinner for family and friends was difficult. My brother had just been diagnosed a couple of weeks before and as I worried about safely preparing lunch I never suspected that I would be positive, I just thought wow this is going to be one bad migraine with this much aura. I am so thankful this year that I know I am positive, the headaches and aura have gone, my family, now that there are four of us who are positive are better able to influence family get togethers, and I am so thankful I found this board. I am sure that without all of you I would not have been as successful this year. Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
Being constantly hungry is a sign of being glutened for me (had it before going gluten-free and when I get glutened now.) You might make sure you don't have any lingering gluten in your food/products/etc anywhere.
Also likely your body went into starvation mode. Make sure you're eating enough calories everyday (1600+). Fill up on high fiber foods to take the edge off the hunger (like popcorn) and then it's best to just wait it out. It will go away eventually, once your body is better.
I'm the same, first the excessive hunger starts and then the migraines come back again. I'm currently trying to locate what is getting me right now, but have been totally unsuccessful. I think it is just the handling on bread for the rest of my family.
