I am putting everything on hold. I am in Connecticut indefinitely because my Dad is having a serious health crisis. I'd like to be able to tell the whole story soon but it feels a bit too overwhelming right now. I can say that on Wednesday, I thought I was saying goodbye to him but today has given me reason to feel optimistic. No matter what, we have a long road ahead of us and I need to focus on being with my family.

Obviously, I am unable to run my online shop during the holiday rush while all this is going on. I am returning to Massachusetts on Monday to pack and tie up loose ends and then closing my Argyle Whale shop. Shipping the last orders on Tuesday so if you wanted something, make sure you order it by Monday because then I am closing for a month or a year... I honestly have no idea how long I will be living in Connecticut with Mom.
In case some of you were wondering, the bunnies and hedgehog are being taken care of by Justin who is "holding down the fort" in Massachusetts.
I expect lots of slow and quiet days at the hospital are in my future. The internet connection is awful here and even worse at my parent's house so while I may not be posting much, I will probably still be drawing. There is not much to do here except wait for a finger wiggle or opening eyes. Patience and strength and amazing medical staff and family and friends and love are working wonders right now.
