Update

Hi all, I'm really sorry about the lack of freebies here. I'll just give you a short update.
Early november I've been diagnozed with breast cancer and my life has been upside down ever since. Two weeks later I had a mastectomy and now I'm undergoing chemotherapy. The chemo is just to prevent a relapse. The doctors are very positive and so are we.
I will be back, you can count on that, but it will take me some time to recover, so please be patient.
For now I want to wish you all Happy Holidays and a good and HEALTY 2010.
Hugs Joni

Sorry to hear about the breast cancer. I am a 10 year survivor and feel positive every day that it will continue that way. My prayers are with you that you will conquer this and live a long cancer free life. Stay positive as I firmly believe that is always half the battle with any problem. Enjoy the blessed Christmas season and take care of yourself.
