I have been meaning to give an update, but I think we'll just pause for a moment: Emilie from Lemmondrops, whose blog I've been reading for about six months, died from sarcoma. She had sons close in age, which might have been part of the reason I latched onto her blog, but she was also a lovely writer and person. If you haven't read it before, it's worth going through the archives.
She had just gone into home hospice care, and the end seemed to come very quickly, but her last few posts seemed as if she were ready. If anyone ever is. Please send your best to her husband and sons.
