Hello Everyone,

I know that a lot of you look forward to Michelle McCoy's challenges and her cheerfully helpful presence in the forums. As many of you know, Michelle has had a number of difficult health challenges recently, and in fact has an upcoming surgery scheduled.

Michelle asked me to let you know that she will be away from the community and challenge hosting for a while, taking this time to focus on her health. When she is able, she will be posting kits in the store and even "dropping by", but her focus right now is on her health.

I'm sure we all feel the same way - that we will miss Michelle she's away, but are all hoping for her good health and understand how important it is to make that her priority.

Get well, Michelle - and we look forward to your return!
