Just a brief update. We are doing better tonight. Today was rough, but mixed in with the crying jags were moments of routine and normalcy. SOF said yesterday that she felt like her insides had been wrung out, and today they felt a little less so. I concur.
Everyone has been so damn nice. All the emails and comments, and a couple of surprise phone calls. One from my oldest brother was very nice last night, and tonight, a friend from the DC area called after reading about Alafair on the blog.
Thanks. This community of friends--cyber and other--is a good thing.
