Jordy Update

Hi Guys.

Sorry it has been so long between writing updates on Jordy. Quite frankly, there really wasn’t any change in him and therefore I never felt compelled to write anything.

However … in the last two weeks or so, Jordy has taken a turn for the worst. :( As of writing this, he is under the house .. where he spends all his days now. I coax him out at night to come in to have something to eat and he does, but he only nibbles. He has lost so much weight :( I mean, Jordy is skin and bones now. When I pet him down his back I can feel each and every back bone … and his hips and ribs just poke out so much.

I am thinking the cancer has spread throughout his body now. I think it is now getting close to the time when he will tell me he is ready :( It’s so hard for me but I am grateful that his operation provided us with a lot more time together. He comes inside at night and usually sleeps under my bed, away from the other boys I guess and in the quiet.

I will start writing more on the Jordy Blog so those of you that have followed his story may actually help him move on as well. It will be very hard for me but I will endeavour to keep that up.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Houndstooth Studio’s (specifically Alex) who so kindly offered to do a professional Photo Shoot of Jordy for free! Sadly at this stage I know Jordy just wouldn’t cope with that trip and I have had to decline that offer. :( Thank you very much Alex!!

And thank you also to everyone who has contributed to the Jordy Fund by purchasing my works. The Jordy fund was set up to pay for the bill’s I received after Jordy having the operation. So far the fund has raised over AU$800 towards his bills and I am very grateful for all your help with this.

I am sorry I haven’t been around a lot recently (well … for a long time now) I will try to be here more often for you from now on.

Love always
