I have missed you and your contributions to this family. You do have a lot on your plate and I'm glad there are options available to you to improve your situation. I look forward to a day when you can come back. Until then, you and yours are in my thoughts.

Take care.

I can relate, Laurie, and I am sending positive thoughts and energy your way. I trust that everything will work out in the end, and, I know that the caring folks in our extended DC family are always here with an open ear, and open hearts. I know they were 110% supportive after I left the mod squad, and have been slowly getting back to forums.

Take care of yourself!

I'm sorry you've left, Laurie, but understand your reasons.

Take care of yourself. I'll miss you.

Dear Laurie:

I'm so glad you're getting the help you need. You deserve to be well (or at least as pain-free as possible). I can't say I understand, because thankfully I have never experienced chronic pain. I wondered what happened to you.

Take good care of yourself, and know you have a friend here if and when you need me. I think you know how to reach me via email.

And come back soon as you can. You are missed.
Wine is the food that completes the meal.

Laurie, I hope your situation improves very soon and maybe you will want to come back. I've enjoyed your chatter about your life and hope you find the answer to your problems. Will I still see you on Facebook?

lp, i'm so sorry that you are hurting.

your health and your family are of the utmost importance, so go take care of those and we'll be here at any time you want to pop in and see what's up.

my rosary tonight will be for your speedy recovery and return to us.

xoxo my friend.

No matter where I serve my guests, it seems they like my kitchen best!

Laurie, I'm so glad you are getting help with your pain management. I have been worried about you. I knew you wouldn't go away without letting your family here at DC know.... so I was happy to see your post, but sad to hear that you will be absent for a while. We will miss your clever repartee, cooking skills and recipes. Please come back when you feel your health is improved enough to allow. Debbie

If you don't like the food, have more wine!
