Caring Bridge

It seems we have had so many friends or loved ones with health crises recently. Last week an old friend of ours went out for a bike ride and experienced a heart arrhythmia that has been life threatening. He was unconscious for a period of time until someone came along and called 911. I just happened to be on Facebook when someone posted this. The next day the same person, Thank You Rick Watson, posted a free website that families can go to and make a page for their loved ones to follow along with progress reports. The "blog-like" home page has condition, diagnosis, any pertinent information that you want to share. Then there are other links, journal which shares updates on their progress, guestbook where friends and family can come and leave words of encouragement for the patient and family and even a photo page. Part of the service that Caring Bridge offers are email or text notifications of updates, so helpful to family when there is so much going on. If you know someone who is going through an illness or health emergency share this great website....
