Welcome to our CaringBridge site. We've created it to keep friends and family updated. We appreciate your support this third time through. Electronic means of contact or contacting Wayne first is preferred. We are pretty self-sufficient, but as time progresses may need more help with household tasks. We are not asking for meals directly at this time, because the diet can be restrictive, and there are significant concerns about any food-borne pathogens. Gift cards to Food lion or Walmart are very useful. Kate loves reading, so Amazon cards are also nice. However, Kate is not planning to hide in the house, so getting out of the house when her immune system supports it is a welcome idea if you have gatherings.
