Joan with her son and grandson Oliver in Los AngelesSorry, Joan's Journeyers, but this month's installment of Joan's Journey will be delayed indefinitely as Joan is in the hospital recovering from a bad fall.

Fortunately, her accident occurred while visiting family in Los Angeles, so not only is she receiving medical care at one of the best hospitals in country, but all of her children were able to quickly come to her aid.

More information on Joan's condition will be published as it becomes available, hopefully in Joan's own words. All of us here at are wishing Joan a speedy recovery. Please leave your well wishes for her in the comments below!
