Chemo moved to Saturday, and uptown where there was power. Spent today, Monday, packing bags of relief supplies for victims of Sandy in Jersey City for Jersey City Sandy Recovery.
The need is great and constant. I'm in awe of the generosity of the donors, and the beautiful energy of the volunteers. Much of what they do is back breaking work, and many are victims of the storm themselves, returning home to no light and no heat. If you can give a half an hour of time, or a loaf of bread, or a blanket, please do, and know that it's appreciated.
We were without power and heat for three nights. That's all. When I say it now, it seems like nothing, but in the middle of it I was really freaking out. The day after it came back I cried, inexplicably, all day.
