A quick note to say that I am overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support from this amazing online community, as well as the expressions of love and support we’re getting from our RL friends and family. I’ve been talking to Simone a lot and telling her about all the people who are wishing her health and strength. Several times in the last couple of days I’ve come across her name on one of your blogs, and it makes me cry every time. I can’t articulate it as well as I’d like, but it means a lot to me that she is real enough (even to people other than us) for you guys to use her name.
We’ve been listening for her heart beat several times/day, and today I even took the doppler to work. She’s still there, and though her heartbeat does falter sometimes it’s never as low or slow as it was in the doctor’s office on Wednesday.
