Blogging Break

Hello, I am taking an indefinate leave of absense from blogging.

My stepfather is critically ill. He has Sepsis, basically a massive infection in his blood with no positive outcome even if he does survive it.

So far he has not responded to the medication that he is being giving intravenously since last Thursday.

He is in a semi conscious state and has suffered some brain damage due to the severity of the infection.

It is a terrible thing to see this happen and the speed it happened is shocking.

I need to support my mother and my youngest brother who is closest to my stepfather through this horrible time.

Thank you all for your kind messages and prayers.
