Bloggers Are Here

A week ago Alberto lay on an airport floor in Canada, dying. Tonight he is resting well on the recovery ward.

Thanks to all of you bloggers, our tango friends all around the world, and friends and famliy, we are getting closer to getting home to New Orleans for him to be treated there.

Keep praying, and please keep sending those donations.

If his progress continues, and we can get the doctors here to release us, we can leave for home in a week or so.

I will forever be proud to know of all of you incredilbe bloggers, and the next time someone looks at me askance and asks why on earth I am a blogger, I will smile and say because of all of you.

Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you

Mil gracias.

So glad to hear that Alberto is doing better - fingers crossed you'll be home soon.

Now I don't really want to bother you with this - but yet again I'm getting warning messages from
Google about a virus on your blog - this time coming from your link to Holding Court.

I did want you to know though, because that's the reason I haven't left a comment.

Thinking of you

love Jan x

Oh my dearest Valorie,

I have lifted up a thousand prayers on behalf of your beautiful soulmate, Alberto.

It is my prayer that you will both be back in New Orleans soon to receive the very best in care. My deepest prayer is that recovery will be swift and you will once again be dancing your beloved tango.

Sending strength and love.

* Glad you could give us an update~~~ and a POSITIVE one at that!!! How thankful you must BOTH be right now!!!

IMHO, getting home to AMERICA is the BEST "cure" there could be, so, am hoping you're back home in no time, Valorie!

Warmest blessings,

Dear Val,
Longtime reader/admirer, first time commenter. I'm a close friend of Jenny's (MFAMB), and occasionally your name comes up --as in, "You must see what my friend Valorie has up on her blog today!"--but when she got word of your dear husband's condition while at my house last week, she immediately jumped online to check on you. I don't mean to speak for her at all, I just had to write and tell you that I am thinking of you and your husband, sending prayers your way, and hoping the love and light in your hearts can carry you through this difficult time. I know how hard this can be; we are all here, behind you, supporting and praying for you. Much love,
Molly Marler

I am a "friend of a friend" and want you to know that I am praying for your husband's health and your strength. I am also part of the fund raiser. I offer my hand [here in NJ] to help lift your soul mate back to his happy dancing feet!
