Since becoming immersed in Twitter, the thing I’ve found the most overwhelming is how the online community pulls together to offer support in a crisis. People who have never met before manage to organise themselves to make a huge difference – whether it was the clean up after the riots or the hunt for a missing child. The blogging community is so close because we all chat, comment on each others blogs and meet up to eat cake together at events and training courses. I count many bloggers as friends, even though I haven’t met them all. Kerry who blogs at Multiple Mummy is one of those people. Like me she has twins and singleton, and hers was one of the first blogs I came across when I was considering setting up my own blog about my twins. Her twins are the same age as mine and it has been lovely following her blog as I can completely relate to everything she says.
In the summer, tragedy struck and Kerry suffered a ruptured aneurysm which led to a brain haemorrhage. Her recovery has been hampered by infections and she remains very poorly in hospital.
Amazingly, her husband is finding the time to look after their three children, visit Kerry in hospital AND keep her blog updated. This is so important to her online friends as we’re all hanging out for every piece of news about her health.
Her idea is that on 24th November at 10pm the Twitter community will pull together to send out prayers, positive thoughts, or just a few kinds words to Kerry and her family using the hashtag #Healing4Kerry.
If you are a blogger, please write a post about this and share the date from your Twitter account to your followers. Liska has also just added a lovely poem for Kerry which she would like people to post on their blogs on 24th November, or for those of you who know Kerry maybe you could share some memories of her and some photos. Let’s try to get strength in numbers.
We want to see Kerry back here blogging, where she belongs #Healing4Kerry
