CaringBridge: An invaluable resource

A women we know from our early morning water aerobics class was missing from class for a week or two. This happens. People travel. But then we found out her husband, in his early 60s, had a fairly serious stroke.

Luckily, our water buddy Kathleen was on CaringBridge, a free and personal website where family can update extended family and other friends on a health crisis.

Kathleen returned to class Monday. Everyone was happy to see her there, and because she was on CaringBridge with so many of us, she didn't have to repeat health updates to a dozen people. This site is wonderful, no string attached, no hidden agenda.
