Hello All,
This seemed the quickest way to check in. I haven't been able to check my PMs or read through the forums to see if anyone has needed to get in touch with me and I probably won't be able to be back in touch for a while. I've been very ill since mid-august and I've just come home from the hospital. I don't know when I will be able to be back in the swing of things, but right now I am barely able to get out of bed. I do plan to do any recordings I've signed up for, in fact some I recorded before I got sick but haven't been able to edit. I hope to be able to do all of the the things I've signed up for, however if I am signed up for anything for which I am the last person and it's at the deadline, I don't want to hold up anybody's project. If you absolutely must orphan the parts and give them to someone who can do it sooner, I understand, please just drop me a line so i'll know you've done so, and when I am doing a little better I will check through my pms and the forums.

Also, for the 2 projects I am book coordinating. If my MCs (Catharine for the foolish dictionary and David for Byways around SF bay) can please bear with me during this time and put off the cataloguing until I am better, I'd greatly appreciate it. I have some edited tracks I need to submit for The foolish dictionary, and need to edit and submit my sections, as well as do any other edits, for Byways. I'd appreciate it if these projects could just be put on hold until I am able to get everything in order and properly edited. thanks.

I also need to ask for someone to fill in for me again, regrettedly, for the weekly poetry. I won't reschedule my week until I am feeling better, that way I wont need to unexpectedly postpone anymore.

I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused anyone. Also, like I said if anyone has tried to contact me, I haven't been around. At this point just taking a few minutes to type this is making me sick and I need to go lay down but I will be back eventually so I wanted to let everyone know I haven't forgotten or abandoned any of the readings I signed up for.

Don't worry about the poetry coordination, it'll be taken care of. Annie and I will work it out.

Also, if you need anything edited, I'm willing to help out, just let me know.

We miss you! Get better soon!

Oh, Maddie, what a relief to hear from you. I only just this minute saw this thread -- I was moving when it was posted.

I so wish I could come help you heal and lighten your time as you've helped us and lightened ours.

I'm so sorry the Anniversary show and its incautious MC (that's me, folks) overloaded you so! Please forgive. Please be at ease. Please take your time. Please can we send you CDs?

our fond best wish making to Maddie
