Starry has her own blog now. Here is her last message:

Hi y'all
I've been very comforted by all your responses, and I apologize for not being able to answer all of you, but I have read all your messages and it really does help.  Thank you.  A local news station is putting my updates on a blog, and if you wish to continue to follow, please use that website.  It's very difficult to send out these mass emails, and I don't want to bother anyone that isn't too interested . . .
