Adding my best hopes and wishes that you'll be back on your feet (and back at your computer!) very soon.

Oh what a shame. To be ill any time is not great but holidays seems to make it worse. Snuggle up with a yummy blanket, something hot to drink, and put on some pretty music. Bless you and yours and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

I enjoy all of Mimi's posts, even when she calls me out for whatever she disagrees with, maybe especially then. I love her spunk.

Pass it on to Cigalechants that I'll say a prayer tonight for her speedy recovery.

Darling Mimi!

Best wishes for a speedy recovery. I'll write more later. I'm on my way to Victoria, in the Air Canada lounge as we "speak". My poor Guinness is in the hold

Hugs and kisses ... Ger

Thanks Beatchick for letting us know.

So sorry to hear this, Mimi. Take extra special care of yourself, and we'll all be waiting to hear how your doing. You are so helpful on here, you're a really special Fodorite - and I'm sure just as special in person! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Oh, Mimi, you see how beloved you are?

Imagine the invisible hands of all these people who care about you smoothing your sheets, plumping up your pillow, tucking you in.

Imagine us standing in an invisible circle around your bed, keeping away all vexation, willing our combined strength to enter your tired body and lighten your spirit.

Then, when you are feeling more like yourself, imagine us bringing you a hot cup of tea, with a purely medicinal pastry on the side, maybe (considering the circumstances) two medicinal pastries.

Imagine all of us rejoicing in your recovery and know that you are cherished.

Mimi--I envy for for all the love others feel towards you. I am so warmed by the thought of all these wonderful Fodorites surround you in your sick bed, even if just in spirit. You are one lucky gal!

Why don't we all light a candle for Mimi, a flame to send to the heavens with good wishes that she recovers quickly.

Mimi, I hope you are surrounded by warm memories of the south of France as you look out at our bleak Massachusetts winter; I hope all these greetings from people who know and respect you from your postings on this message board warm you and make you feel better; and I hope to see you at the January get-together when you have recovered fully.

Mimi...I'm so sorry you are down. We all send love and healing prayers/frog spit your way! I'm headed to Paris in a few days. I'm not Catholic, so not quite sure precisely what the lit candles symbolize, but assume it is love and hope for any of our friends or family, whether with us or not, who need prayers/frog spit. Last time there I lit one for my Mom in Notre Dame on Christmas eve, very, very emotional, but this time, I'll light one for you... Thursday. Feel the power coming from that beautiful cathedral! Be well Mimi. We all love you!

It's nice to give well wishes, but let's not scare Mimi, ok?

You don't want to scare her! Why not just cheer her up? Bring her some food. Otherwise you will just disturb her and that is not what you want. Is it?

I certainly didn't mean to scare Mimi by lighting a candle, and hope I did not! As I said, I believe, for me that's an act that asks for good health, nothing more, as I don't believe anything more is needed. If I've misinterpreted the Catholic concept of the candle, then I apologize for my Protestant ignorance! As a former heavy smoker, pneumonia is one of my personal weaknesses too, and one that visits me almost yearly, but I also know how utterly curable it is, and only want to offer a friend a nice thought for getting well, as I have virtually no expectation but that she will do anything but that. Maybe you have to be there to really knocks you down, but gone are the days when it wasn't a controllable illness!

Get well takes time and patience but you'll get there!

OO, That is a lovely idea. I am pretty sure that Mimi will love the idea of a candle glowing for her in Notre Dame. That is precisely what those votive candles are for!

I don't think you scared Mimi. I think you meant well. I think Lightblues post is much ado about nothing.
