Jullie certainly is inspirational. Think the book is due to come out posthumously, that was one of her conditions for publication.

Peanut is right. The book is supposed to be published posthumously with an epilogue by her husband. She said it will be a compilation of her blog posts.

Her last blog post was on October 16, 2017 so no one is sure how she's doing right now. Hope everything is fine and she's just taking time to edit the book.

Wow, I had no idea this blog existed, I don't like how it will end but she's inspired me already from reading just one post. I hope she is okay and spending time with her family and editing her book. Thank you all for leading me to her blog, it brings comfort along with sadness but that's life....

I have also found Julie's blog to be an inspiration. Sadly I understand that Julie passed away last month. There is a moving obituary published in the New York Times on 22 March.
