May the Circle Be Unbroken...

Living in Jordan, our second home, many of us face the problem of how to keep informed and provide support to loved ones back home or far flung around the world when they are ill, hospitalized or near the end of life.

During the past couple of years, I have discovered this wonderful, free web-based service that allows the sick person or their caretaker-family to make frequent updates available to everyone who needs to know and for those loved ones to send messages of love, support and encouragement. It's really very simple but such a powerful way to keep the circle unbroken.

I am pasting in below the brief info and URL of the CaringBridge site, in case you should ever need this or be able to recommend it to others. They will thank you.

Hope all our loved ones stay healthy and safe! Um D

These families share information and receive love and support for a wide array of medical conditions.
