    I have also been worried about Michelle. I am hoping she is just resting and getting better and just hasn't felt like posting. She is in my thoughts and prayers for all things good.

    Hey all--

    Michelle posted on her blog on 2/4, so she is doing okay. Sounded very grateful to come through her ordeal. You can get the link from her signature.

    Thank goodness. I'll check it out. I was becoming concerned since we hadn't heard anything. I told my mom last night that I inherited her "worry gene".
