Hello! Wondering why we are so quiet?
No, we haven’t gotten sucked into a new run Netflix programming, nor have we so fully immersed ourselves in a new gaming campaign we forgot to come up for air….. (Usual reasons for our absence to be sure!)
First off, we had big plans for near future. We were going to bring a fun collection of Flawed Foes for April fools. You can already find some of these characters on our website, but many of them are all new. We’ve also been looking at some Starfinder content. And another Tangible Tavern. We were working hard at this while juggling our less exciting day jobs and life with kids, and then something happened….
Our youngest child, Rugrat #3, got sick. Really sick.
She was incredibly puffy, lethargic, and just not herself at all. That was about four weeks ago. She is having kidney issues that are being attributed to post-infectious GN. Her kidneys are not able to process the liquid in her body, causing her tissue to become incredibly puffy. Her face is swollen to the point her eyes barely open, her feet are too big for her shoes, she is wearing clothing two sizes bigger than she should be. There is little the doctors can do but manage the symptoms until her kidneys start working again, but typically this should have happened after about ten days. We aren’t making progress.
And we’re shattered.
Long story short, she and I are currently staying at a children’s hospital in Vancouver, BC. Her brothers and father are currently visiting, but won’t be able to stay until we come home as it looks like we’ll still be here awhile.
We are so grateful to live in a country with universal health care, we are also grateful to the family and friends who were bringing us food and grocery store gift cards while we were still on the island, and we are also grateful to all those who have been sending healing thoughts, prayers, and well wishes.
Rest assured we love our fans, we love writing, and one day, when things settle down, we’ll be back with some of the projects we were working on before this happened, and some other ones we’ll be inspired to do.
In the meantime, we need to focus on our little rugrats.
We wish you and your family much health and happiness.
