Steve came in to the shop yesterday. He looked noticeably different from how he has the past few months. He didn't seem to have such a crushing weight on his shoulders. Joan is home and recovering as evidenced by her return to using her iphone. I'm sure her recovery is not going to be easy, but I think it goes with out saying that she will handle it with grace, good humor and aplomb. I wish I could be such a person.
While I don't think Joan is ready (or able) to be bombarded by a mass of well wishers, I know that both she and Steve appreciate our thoughts and efforts of support. Continue to think of them, ride your bike, wear some pink and enjoy life because I know those are things that both Joan and Steve will be doing every chance they get.
