When I started the blog I thought everything would be run of the mill, but boy how things escalate quickly. With everything going on with Rhett and people wanting to stay caught up on what is going on I thought this would be the best way!
He/we have a long road ahead and we are so thankful for all that you have done. A few people have sent us websites of people going through similar things and it just seemed like the best thing to do.
This site allows for more flexibility in the content offered. I’ve started a twitter account for Rhett’s updates throughout the hospital stay for some of the quicker updates to keep people informed (they will automatically show up on the right side of this page if you are on a web browser). I also think I’m going to be able to get a live blog going so some of my family can update it during delivery day and some of Rhett’s big events!
So far writing has been the most therapeutic thing I have been able to do and I know it has helped us with not having to tell the story over and over again. The words of encouragement have been so great, so again… THANK YOU! At a time when it feels like there is nothing we can do to help Rhett, switching to a website and having more to learn and more today helps me feel like I’m at least doing something, even though it’s only words. Plus it’s pretty fun. Shoutout to Jadi for her graphic design work!
So if you’d like to receive updates when a new blog is posted you can put your email in to the right of this post if you are reading on a web browser and if you are reading on your phone you can click the header of this specific post and at the bottom of the post I think you can also subscribe! You can also add it to your homescreen on an iphone if you hit the little box with an up pointing arrow on your iphone browser and add to home screen. It creates a cool little icon and everything!
For twitter you can follow Rhett’s story @iheart_rhett
We have the best friends and family and we are all so thankful for the love and support you’ve shown.
17 weeks to go!
