Since returning from the Atlanta Pen Show, the health of our beloved cat Milo continued to decline to the point where we had to say goodbye to him yesterday. Nine months ago he had an accident that had left his back half paralyzed and this lead to further complications in his overall health and well-being. We were hoping and praying that he might recover from his injuries but in the end, age and infirmity made him more and more uncomfortable. Even the vet said we had done more for him than most people would have and he lived a much longer, happier life as a result of our vigilant care.
That said, I was beside myself with sadness yesterday and today. Hopefully, regular pen, ink and paper-related posts will resume tomorrow and your patience and understanding in the delay is greatly appreciated.
