    Default A Message From Superchef

    As some of you might not be aware from other sources, our Lady Cheffie has recently been diagnosed with Neurofibromatosis Type 1. She has asked Pumper41 and I to send out messages on her behalf. Basically it all comes down to the fact that she will be undergoing some rather intense surgery within the next week or so, and as a result she will not be as active in the Forums for the next little while. She has also asked that anyone with “fun smilies” and well wishes for her, could these be posted through her home email.

    Further information can be found on the following website:

    Cheffie,

    My thoughts and prayers are with you. I hope that your recovery is complete and speedy. I miss your menus that caused me to gain ten pounds just by reading them.

    Hang in there, we're all pulling for you.

    Well men, I guess you'll have to serve some good BBQ to her in honor of her good cooking over these years. All the best to Cheffie!!!

    Tripper, the smilie thing is very true, and very much appreicated. And if you know how to create them from scratch so much even better.

    Talking glad to help out....

    ....but like I mentioned in another thread, don't go around telling people I did something nice, some of the folks around here (my FD)might find out and expect it of me all the time. Sorry, cant help out with making new ones from scratch, but if this site really has 5,000 of them I doubt I could come up with anything they haven't yet. Here's the link to the download:

    Dear Cheffie, Going through a similar circumstance as your own I can personally attest to the fact that all "crusties" will always be there for you. God speed and I pray that you will get through this fine and be back in your "kitchen" post haste. Bob

    Cheffie,
    I am sorry,I noticed this thread a couple of days ago but hadnt looked at it until now as I thought it would contain something funny or humorus or have a new recipe about something nifty, I had no idea about the seriousness of the situation. You have always been here for us and somehow sneaked into our lives like a you are a true FF, always listening and have kinda just gotten right into our hearts in a most respectful fashion. I can only wish you a safe and speedy recovery. As already stated when you think about us here you are not alone ................take care and God Bless. 27 please keep us advised of her condition.

    Hey all. I spoke with Sherry earlier this evening (21 Nov). She is out of surgery and has a private room to herself. She is doing well, other than being just a little dopey because of all the happy drugs they are giving her.

    She asked me to send her regards, and deepest and much appreciated thank you to you all for your warm thoughts and prayers. She says that knowing your thoughts has helped to give her the strength to get through this.

    Josh, Sherry is very deeply touched by your post in this thread. I read it out to her last night, this morning, and then again this evening. It means a lot to her, and she says "Thank you".
