I began blogging shortly after the birth of my son W. Now, almost 18 months down the road, it is something that I have come to treasure. Not only have I re-discovered the joy of writing, when I am able, but I have formed many new friendships both online, and in person, with many others in the blogging community. The kindness, support and generosity of many of these people has, at times, astounded me.
Some bloggers I have not yet met, nor perhaps shall I ever, but online friendships and relationships have been forged none the less. You can really get a sense of a person’s nature in the little snippets that they leave in your comments box and they can really help to lift your spirits and brighten your day.
I have found one such supportive blogger to be Kerry, aka Multiple Mummy. She would frequently leave me an amusing caption for my often uninspiring #satcap entry, or take the time to comment on my Silent Sunday photo.
Then, in July of this year, her comments stopped. Tragedy struck and Kerry suffered a ruptured anyeurism which then led to a brain haemorrhage. She has remained in a coma since then. On a good day she may be able to squeeze her husbands hand, but not every day is a good day.
Many of us wish that there was more that we could do for Kerry and her family. Having felt a little helpless New Mum Online has asked us to take a moment, at 10pm this evening, to send some positive thoughts in the direction of Kerry and her family. Let them know that we are thinking of them and praying for her swift recovery.
