TODAY WAS HELEN’S Heartwalk, so we got up and moving earlier than usual for a Saturday and headed down to the World’s Fair site, where there were several thousand other heart patients and their families. The weather wasn’t great, but it was good enough.

The T-shirt Helen is wearing here is for people who have implantable defibrillators — they’ve all had their heart stopped (at least) as part of the testing process when those are installed.

I may post some more photos later. We’re at my mother’s house now, watching my grandmother so that my mom can go up to my brother’s for my nephew’s first birthday party. Unlike Megan McArdle, I do have Internet access, but I don’t have a cookie recipe to share.


UPDATE: She’s posted more pictures on her blog.
