Welcome, friends! Jennica (Wendy’s daughter) is setting up this CaringBridge site because, naturally, Wendy is off maple-tree-tapping with her grandson Clarence (as anyone would do between chemo shots, right?) on this cold March day. Someone’s gotta do the computer work here.
As many of you know, Wendy was diagnosed with the blood cancer Multiple Myeloma in late January. (No symptoms, just discovered through routine bloodwork and a conscientious primary-care doctor.) She is undergoing chemotherapy in preparation for a stem-cell transplant sometime this summer.
I’m setting up this site so she has an easy way to connect with her wide circle of loving friends and family. She has deeply appreciated the recent outpouring of encouragement and support from you all, and would like to keep you apprised of events as she moves forward.
Thank you so much for every card, flower, treat, and kind word that you’ve sent her way. You should know that she keeps each word of encouragement, and re-reads each card. (The grandkids help her eat every treat.) Your words have lifted her spirits from some dark moments, and she keeps them close at hand.
If you haven’t used CaringBridge before, I highly recommend ‘subscribing’ to journal updates so you get an email each time she posts (or, more likely, I post for her while she’s out adventuring between treatments).
