Hello my dearest friends,
I hope you are all doing well during these crazy times. I have been away far too long but 2020 has not been a kind year. I have not worked on my miniatures, so this is not a mini related post. Over the years your good wishes and prayers have helped me get through some tough times, so I thought I would turn to you all again.
Last November Jo was diagnosed with cancer. He was operated in January and has made a complete recovery. A week later, just before the end of my parental leave, my employer of 12 years informed me that my position was eliminated. It was a blessing in disguise because I could take care of Vigo. All this I could deal with.
In August, Vigo started to get sick. He has been in the hospital since September 30th. They are treating him for many things because they still have not found what is making him sick. Yesterday they took us aside and told us that he is in decline and that there is a real chance he will die. If there was ever a time a parent would beg for prayers and good wishes this is it!
I never in my life could have imagined being this scared, and I never fully understood just how much I love him. I don't know how to deal, but I hope all the love and friendship you have shown me over the years will help my little monkey baby fight and get over this.
