Hessy! My good friend Heather came up for a couple days. We watched the USA USA USA score the 90+ goal to win the class and advance in the world cup. There were maybe ten other people total in the bar, but the collective joy that screamed out of all of us felt like a herd of elephants. We went to the taste of Shrewsbury street where total strangers who have never heard of Corrie, never heard of angiosarcoma, smiled at me and my children as we walked down the street like any other normal people.... people who have not just had their worlds completely rearranged by a creul twist of fate. I love the support, but the awkwardness that people express around me, the "what should I say, how should I act" gig is getting old. It was really nice to be with someone who really knows me, who laughed at cancer with me.
