Wishing you a Happy, Healthy New Year … and many more to follow

Thursday, December 24, 2009.

surgery2As surreal as it continues to be, we are making our way through this unexpected Breast Cancer Journey thanks to the support, good wishes and strong positive vibes of our generous friends, family and online/offline community.

Chemo is now underway and I believe Andrea is on the upswing of the first round. It’s an odd Christmas but we’re working towards many happy Christmas seasons to come.

We miss JOMB, the stories, authors, illustrators, listeners, the conversations. If you’d like to keep in touch, we’ve set up a Flickr photo journal here where you can check in on our progress and even leave us your thoughts.

Wishing each of you a very happy holiday season and a happy, healthy 2010 full of love, warmth and great memories.

Be well and be happy,
Andrea, Mark, Lucy and Bayla

Joy to you both – in those small, quiet spaces where one would think that joy would not fit — may you find it, and laughter, and the courage to keep going forward.

Peace and love to you both!

I miss your posts and your energies. Andrea, you look lovely–your skin looks so beautiful. The silver lining of all this?
Happy season of lights.
May many good things come from this Journey.

Continuing to send you good vibes, though I hope that they have no trouble crossing the Canadian border. ;^) Get well, be well.
