Hi all,

I just wanted to take a few seconds to introduce myself, after all, a stranger in your midst (though I don't feel like I'm a stranger) must be frightening for all off you.

I'm Jonathan, the guy who has the privilege to be taking care of Jason, the blanket arrived today and Jason has been cuddled up in it ever since. At the moment he can't thank you guys yet, as somehow watching the computer screen, or any screen for that matter, seems to be giving him fits.

I will write more soon!

Welcome to the group officially! Glad to see you here. Tell Jason (for us) no rush - we know he's thankful - and I'm personally glad he's snuggled up (sleeping I hope) with his blanket... it means a lot to all of us to know he's wrapped up in it - surrounded by the collective love that made it... we're all thinking good thoughts - for him *and* you -

Keep in touch!

Jonathan . . . welcome, officially, to MWK. I'm sure I speak for everyone when I say that we hope you will keep in touch with everyone here, both about Jason and yourself. People who choose to be caregivers are a unique, very special bunch of people, and even when words don't express it, are appreciated a great deal by so many. I was glad to hear that the blanket arrived so quickly, and that it is embracing Jason with the love and compassion that is in each square, contributed by so many kind people all over the world.

Your devotion to Jason's care has a bit of a connection to an article I just read in our local newspaper on our island. A local man has just organized a new initiative, Gabriel's Caregivers, what will help the ill, elderly, etc. to assist them to remain in their homes (vs. going to a long term health care facility), and will focus on caring for men.

Take care of yourself, as you take care of Jason . . and keep in touch here.

JOnathon - you are most definately not a stranger - just family we don't know real well yet...

MMario - I'm not divorced from reality - we're having a trial separation

How the heck are you Jonathan? Jason is very lucky to have someone like you to take care of him, and we're all glad you keep us up to date on how he's doing. Welcome!
