I just came on here to update my Biggest Loser thread count and realized that I haven't seen Valli posting recently--Valli, is everything okay?

I was thinking the same thing last night.  I did a search on forum posts and it looks like she has posted since the last week of March.  I hope everything is OK with her.

Where, oh, where has our dear Valli gone?

Looks like her shelf is on hold, her last forum post was 3/29 and she added to her WL on 4/10.

Vaaalllliiii ... come out, come out wherever you are ...

I remember on one of the threads here (the Alan Savage swap one maybe?) someone had said she was away for a bit due to health reasons. Hope she's feeling ok!

Thanks Kelly -- someone did mention it over in the "April -- What are you reading?" thread.

Though, from the sounds of things, Alan Savage could certainly make anyone sick. devil

Get well soon, Valli!

I haven't heard from Valli in several days and this is quite unlike her. Guess I will spill the beans and let you all know that she had had an appendectomy but she was home and doing well. Now I'm hoping that she doesn't have some complications or something else going on! WHERE ARE YOU VALLI?

Hope you are feeling back to normal soon, Valli! Lots of love, hugs, and prayers from me!

Well, I want to express my concern for Valli here. I haven't heard from her in more than 2 weeks and my attempt to reach her by phone failed, so I have mailed off a note expressing my concerns. Need I say that this is not like her? Has anyone else heard anything?

I'm concerned too -- hopefully her abs are just too sore for her to type.  Thanks for keeping us posted, Jeanne -- I hope you hear something soon.

:( Hope things are ok and she's just resting, healing, and reading.

No, no further news. In reviewing her latest PMs to me, I see where she mentioned that they changed their (phone) service in January and she was going to get the new info to me, but she hadn't done that as yet. I want to wait a bit to see if there is any response to my note which I mailed off to her. If that fails, I may have to put on my sleuthing hat and dig a little deeper! devil

Speaking of people we haven't heard from, Shelley has also been MIA for a few weeks.  I've sent her a PM to check on her.  Here's hoping that Valli and Shelley have run off together to a really cool UBS and they will come back with lots of goodies to share!

Oh, I just heard from Shelley this weekend past. She's been super busy, but she is still around. Have we heard from Deb lately?

I'm so glad you've heard from Shelley!  I figured she was busy with her hooping, knitting and whatever other creative endeavor she has found!  I haven't seen anything from Deb since she posted from California last week.  I'm missing all of our girlfriends!

Well, I've gone through all of my options in order to try and reach Valli. The only thing left is People Search and I don't know if I should go that far! Maybe give a while longer yet....

Has anyone heard anything?  She's been absent from the forums for over a month -- surely she's in withdrawal.  I hope all is well.

I haven't heard anything.  I don't mind saying I am worried.  I miss her!

I also thought of Valli during the Alabama storms--isn't that where she lives, or am I wrong on that?

I haven't heard a thing and we used to PM each other every day. All I can say is that she was recovering nicely from an appendectomy and then "poof" she seems to have vanished. Her account is on hold (which I think is a good sign). I am unable to call her b/c she changed service in January so all of her phone numbers are defunct. I have e-mailed her and no e-mail has been returned but Valli is notorious for not checking her e-mails regularly. I have written to her twice. Short of getting in my car and driving out there, I don't know what else I can do. There is a part of me that wants to respect her privacy and figures that she will contact us when she's good and ready and then there is a part of me that says"what if something is wrong"? She vanished from PBS long before the storms hit AL and Valli is on the gulf (way south). The storms hit hard further north. That's the best and the most information that I have. I really, really feel very helpless about all of this.
