I hate to drop it on you this way but I'm hoping you can let the Kos community know that Julie passed away this afternoon. It was very sudden and completely unexpected. She had been doing really well and looking forward to doing even better. This disease sucks. She sneezed which led to aspiration, some vomiting, more aspiration, then cardiac arrest. Her heart stopped 3 times. She was airlifted to a local trauma center and they worked like hell to help her but her lungs were unable to come back.Prior to January, 2011, Julie posted under the name juliewolf beginning in 2005.
Please join me in extending our condolences to MoonWomyn and sharing our grief at this terrible loss.
UPDATE: Horace Boothroyd has posted a memorial diary for Julie Waters.
Also, Julie was a newspaperwoman, if you'll forgive my use of that dated term. You can see a lovely obituary in the Green Mountain Daily.
