I just found the neatest website that allows people to keep in touch with others who are in critical care situations. I think it does more than that, but I just joined because a friend of mine I just found out has a brain tumor.
Here is the site: http://www.carepages.com/
My friend blogs there to let her friends and family all over know how she is doing. We can then respond to her messages and so much more. I still have to explore it some more.
But if you have a loved one who you find it hard to get in touch with or they just don't want to deal with all the phone calls they can set up an account and then invite people to view the updates. You can have public messages or private ones.
Next Discussion: Yoga anyone? »
