Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep Harriet's family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support, prayers and messages of hope and encouragement. 

Harriet has a radical road to recovery ahead of her. Oy vey, such 'tsurus'. After hip replacement surgery (Nov 3), Richard's illness and hospice care (Dec), emergency surgery due to staph infection (Dec 22), Richard's passing (Dec 27) and now IV antibiotics for 6 weeks in skilled nursing and rehab. 

I will be traveling to her from San Diego and my brothers, nieces and cousins will also  be around, of course. . And, she needs her friends like never before. You are the most awesome caring community I've ever known  which is a testament to the sort of friend Harriet has always been. We are grateful for your support.

You are welcome to forward this to everyone in the circle of friends you share with her. Let me know if you want to be added directly to receive updates as I write them. We're grateful for all your prayers,  thoughts,  well wishes, warmth and laughter, which is the best medicine of all.
We'll be updating with journals to keep current.
Thank you so.
