Aunt Helen died this morning

Brianne told the Kid, because the Kid had been planning to go visit today, and she told me.

Jon Rice drove down today and is taking me to my biopsy tomorrow, and then see Oldest Brother in the afternoon. We were going to visit Aunt Helen Friday.

[personal profile] mashfanficchick got me a shirt to wear tomorrow, an oversized button-up for comfort after the biopsy. Also ze got me Starbucks. We talked for awhile when ze dropped it off.

Skyped the FWiB. Also called Oldest Brother and Middle Brother to tell them. Oldest Brother was hit hard. Middle Brother, it's hard to tell.

Spent a good part of the evening on the phone with Lu Rice, engaging in family gossip. Then Denise called and I talked with her and John and Betsy.

This is a sort of disconnected entry, but it's the best I can manage.

Gratitude List:

1. The FWiB.

2. Family.

3. The Rices.

4. My copy of What Abigail Did That Summer arrived.

5. Understanding boss.

6. The Kid.
