Update... from Alex

Gluten-Free Goddess broke her hip, image : walk here



Hello everyone --

Late Wednesday night my mother- Karina- fell and broke her hip, fracturing the neck of the femur above the proximal line. Since then, she has been through surgery to repair the damage and is recovering well. With any luck, she and Steve will be making the transition back to the casita to continue her recovery in the comforts of home, and will be back to posting on her blog in a few days. I know she is looking forward to getting in touch with all of her friends, fans and fellow bloggers.

    Your blog has been a godsend for me since my doctor told me to follow a gluten-free diet. Your cheery intros and wonderful recipes are indispensable. I have you on speed dial on my browser. Please get well soon and return to your adoring fans!

    PS Has your doctor made sure you can get enough calcium in your very restricted diet?

    Ahh, the lessons of patience and healing...of watching where we place our feet...of grace under pressure (otherwise known as courage)...of silence and smiles...of knowing somewhere inside of your self that all things work for good somehow and eventually. Breathe and be grateful and know that many are sending you love and light. :-)
