Two things

Folks -

A couple things:

First, I'm told that the article about Judi in the Boston Globe will appear tomorrow, Wednesday [sorry to those who scoured today's paper as I did!] Thre is already something on the Globe's web site written by Kay Lazar who wrote the article last year about Judi's struggle with her insurance company. That article can be found in the White Coat Notes column at http://www.boston.com/news/health/blog/2010/01/patients_rights_1.html.

Some of Judi's wonderful colleagues have, with remarkable speed, created the Virtual Memorial web site I had hoped to create. Consequently, I'm urging everyone to go to Judi's new site at http://judi-chamberlin.virtual-memorials.com/ to leave comments, thoughts and memories. I'll keep this blog active for a while, but the central place for everything "Judi" will now be the Virtual Memorials site.

I want once more to thank everyone who has added to the phenomenal outpouring of affection here on the blog. Judi was, and would be moved.

  1. Thank you for keeping us all updated. Also, the web address for the Visiting Nurse and Community Health Hospice donation site is incorrect. the correct address is: http://www.thevisitingnurses.com/Charitable_Giving.htm

    The address needs the "www" part to get there.

  6. Hospice is a type of care and a philosophy of care that focuses on the palliation of a terminally ill patient's symptoms. These symptoms can be physical, emotional, spiritual or social in nature. The concept of hospice has been evolving since the 11th century. Then, and for centuries thereafter, hospices were places of hospitality for the sick, wounded, or dying, as well as those for travelers and pilgrims.

  7. What an amazing way to let others in to the last days of your life. Very difficult for anyone to do. May the family find peace in Judi's passing.

  11. I discovered how important hocpieces are just yesterday. In Poland we've got now a seo tournament and the key word was about supporting hospieces. I knew that I want to participate, but also I realized that I can do more than just fight for a better position in Google. I decided that I can truley help all patients living in hospieces. That's why I ask you to support my action and publish a link to my site with a key word : w$p1eramy hosp1cja (linking to the site http://www.aktywnapomoc.com.pl). I would be really grateful. I will also write on my page about your blog. Your doing great job here. Keep it going.

  13. You make it sound like being a hospice patient wouldn't be a bad thing at all. I just hope that the place in Plymouth near me wouldn't do anything wrong if I ended up needing to enter their facility.
