Hang in there Wen! Let us know when you get back!

Thank you so much for posting for your wife. I know she really cares about the folks around here and we also care very much about her. She will be in my thoughts every day. I hope the new meds and new treatment goes well for her.

I know you will have your hands full too. Try to take good care of yourself too.

Sending angels your way to guide and comfort you, your family and Wen.

I am a spouse to a BPII, and the mother of one as well.  While I have never had to go through hospitalizations with my loved ones, I can only imagine how difficult it is for you.  Our thoughts and prayers are with Wen, you, and your family.  I will pray her treatments and medication adjustments go well. 

Wen has been so supportive of so many here on the HW site, and we do all feel like a family.  Please keep us posted as to her progress, and check back in as well so we can be there for you too during this time (and after if you would like).

Warm sunshine to you all, LFW

Thank you soo much for keeping us all informed about Wen's situation.  She has become like family to all of us and has been so supportive and motivational.  She really must have a large heart.  We wish her the best in her recovery and send you strength to deal with this.  It is nice to know you are there for her and support her through these rough times.  That cannot be said for too many partners.


Best wishes and prayers to Wen, you and your family.  We look forward to hearing from you with any updates, and really look forward to having Wen back.
