Thanks to all of you for the emails, cards, phone calls, visits, meals, gifts, help, words of encouragement, and prayers. An illness like this can really cut you off from the rest of the world and it is so great to remain connected, and, in some cases, become reconnected in these ways. While this blog will hopefully let you know how I am doing, please don't hesitate to stay in touch in these other ways. A phone call is always welcome. It's great to hear how you are doing!
Terri and I also wanted to share a very practical article we recently read on helping out when something like this happens to a family. We have had so many offers of help, but we know how difficult and awkward it is for you to know how you can help as it is for us to tell you how you can help. Hopefully you will find this article useful. The article is entitled Care for the Caregiver. The link can be found at the bottom of the page under More Information but I am also providing it here:
Just copy and paste it into your browser and it should take you to the article.
Again, many thanks for all you have done for Terri and me. We truly appreciate your care and concern for us.
