Jazz Hands

It's been an emotionally exhausting 2 weeks of measuring my lump against the B12 bottletop and hoping it will have shrunk, or better yet be gone.

Hope lives.  Zach's legacy.

This is worth reading.  The video is worth watching.  The song is worth listening to.  The lyrics are worth absorbing.
