Sorry to say . . .


I’m sorry to say that I’m going to have to postpone today’s Creative Mojo again. After days of bed rest and no matter how I try to will myself well, I really cannot move my lips or tongue. My dear friend, Nessa Reifsnyder. is calling my g

uests for me to try to reschedule them once again. I see a new specialist tomorrow and hopefully I will get some kind of answer. I guess the jig is up and I have to come clean that I’m simply not as well as I might seem to be on social media. I would post photos of my lips and mouth, but they are too grisly — so I’ll spare you all! See you next week. 😦 xoxom

    Oh no, I’m so sorry to hear that you are still having problems with your mouth. Although we will miss you, it’s much more important for you to take care of yourself and get well. I think I can speak for all your fans & say that we will all be waiting for you to return, and
    none of us want you to go through pain to do the show. Take care of yourself first! Sending prayers.

    I am so sorry to hear of your medical problems. Having many periods of having to be in bed to recover, I hated it. Keep your mind busy and catch up on tv shows you did not have time for usually. Sara Goldberg

    Please just take care of yourself…the show will wait…sending best wishes your way! Mark, there is so many people who care about you so don’t feel that you have to hide the fact that you are not feeling well.

    Rest, recoup, relax, recharge. Take care of yourself. Everything else will wait. The most important thing right now, for you, is to do what you need to do, to feel better.


  39. September 5, 2012 at 1:15 PM #

    Poor Mark! 😦 As others have already said, your health is more important than the show, so concentrate on getting well. We’ll still be here when you’re ready to get back into the swing of things. Take care of yourself, Head Cupcake, and here’s hoping and praying that you get well soon.

    Take care of yourself


    September 5, 2012 at 8:24 PM #

    Mark, I am so sorry there have been no answers for you. You are such a blessing to so many people and I pray for you daily and also your family. Maybe we could barter a kidney for quilting lessons. LOL I guess that is not so funny at a time like this and it probably hurts to laugh right now huh? A hug and kiss for you! Jeanbean
