Have you been to The Caring Bridge ? While the reason to be there is one we hope you have no need for...that it exists at a time when a friend or family member needs support most is the reason it exists.
Today is one of those days...a friend is having a double mastectomy and reconstruction beginning at 9 am. It is a very long surgery with both a cancer and plastic surgeon peforming what we know will be healing magic for our friend. The hours that the family and friends wait feels like eternity and we will be sure that there is more than hospital food for them during this time.
The CaringBridge.org is a site where people who are going thru health challenges can construct their own websites and give people progress reports on their healing. As a "Caring Bridge Visitor" you can leave supportive messages for the person most in need of them without disturbing them or their loved ones during a difficult time.
Lots of times when there are health issues...you want to help...you want to know how someone is feeling..if they are ready for visitors or want some time to heal but soooo appreciate your good thoughts.
You need only put in the person's name and register and add a bookmark if you wish. You find a "journal of their journey" and what the person wishes to share with on as timely a basis as they choose. You will be notified by email as your "patient" updates their health progress.
In our mind's eye...we see her as whole, healthy and complete and know that after a restful day in ICU she will be resting comfortably in her room and anxious to go home where her "real rest" will begin.
Everyone knows someone who experiences a health issue of some kind and would welcome this kind of "semi techie" healing assistance to give them the warm words and comfort they need most...don't keep this site a secret. If you wish you may contribute to this non profit so that they can continue doing their good work for people in need...just go to their site...www.CaringBridge.Org and explore the opportunities to offer assistance to people when it is most needed. Please
bookmark or share this post...you know you will know or do know someone who can benefit from the comfort this site can bring.
Now you know how you can be the greatest help in the way that someone needs it...at the time that they choose...it doesn't get better...and we know that our friend....and all of yours who choose to use this site...are getting better every day. And So It IS !
