This blog is supposed to be about writing, but I can't focus to write anything right now. Derrick, my dragon, is still with us. He's improved some, but not enough. He is still having problems with his legs. There could be a neurological cause like a tumor or a brain infection. He's been tested for a contagious virus, which could have been passed along to my other dragon, Mike. Mike is starting to show signs of being sick as well. I am not sure if either of them will make it. This virus is fatal and if they are showing these symptoms, it means they are really, truly sick.
We have had Mike for 7 years and Derrick for four. Derrick is a rescue. He is five and a half and Mike is, well, 7. I hate to think of losing one or both of them, but that might be the case in the next week or so. I am having trouble focusing on writing anything and spending a lot of time nursing my two sick friends. Please be patient with me. I hope to be on track as soon as I can.
