February 5, 2016

Once my teens were old enough to drive I automatically assumed
that they were dead in a ditch if I didn't hear from them every hour.
It took several years to unravel the umbilical tether and not panic if
hadn't heard from the kids every day.

It's always irked me when bloggers suddenly stop posting with no
explanation.  My absence from fleaChic is due to a health issue
that I've battled for several years - Ulcerative Colitis.  Surgery
was required in my case and I'm recovering at home under the
supervision of Bob, Archie and Boswell.

I don't know when I'll feel up to returning to writing and I apologize
for the uncertainty of the future of fleaChic.  Thanks for your support.


  1. No apologies needed but glad to hear from you!
    I agree with you about bloggers who are here one day and gone the next.
    I believe in the power of prayer and I will be praying for you.
    Please know, that your blog brightened my day.
    It is one of a kind (big compliment!!!).

  2. Hope you'll be well soon ❤️

  3. Sending you a hug and wishing you a speedy recovery.

  5. I noticed you haven't posted but I thought maybe to much snow/rain ?

    of your Bob, Archie and Boswell.
