More than once, she expressed appreciation -- nearly awe -- for how many people have e-mailed her with sympathy already. It sounds like she has good support from good people in a lot of ways. (Yes, I'm being vague. But a lot of the details weren't any of my business.)
We arranged for me to bring food Wednesday. I'll see if anything needs doing then. She said that she'd want more from people around then, she thought, so it'd be a good time for helpful locals to check in, maybe.
Maybe I shouldn't be saying this on a public post, and I hope nobody takes it amiss; I just know that I've been worried about her all day, and I don't want those of you who were in the same boat to, uh, stay in that...boat.....right. To bed with the Mris. As I was leaving, elisem instructed me to hug my dear ones. You do the same.
