A Tribute to Marty

Marty has crossed over the rainbow bridge. This past weekend Marty was getting progressively worse. He was having some difficulty fighting an infection because of his reduced immune system due to the Prednisone treatments. In addition, he was having labor breathing and had stopped eating on Sunday afternoon. Steve and I felt that there was no point in prolonging his pain any longer and we took him into the doctor Monday evening. The doctor confirmed that Marty’s body was starting to shut down. He had fluid in his lungs which could be the cause of the labored breathing. The doctor agreed that it was the right time to let him go.

Marty is now with his brother Mickey who passed away last Summer.

Both of these boys will be missed for a very long time.

As you might imagine, I am in no way up for recording this week. Which is why I am posting this short tribute to Marty instead. I hope you enjoy a look back over Marty’s life. He was very much loved and he took a piece of my heart with him when he left this world.

This weekend, I will upload the tutorials that will be posted while I am away at Knit-topia. If possible I will try to upload short clips or photos from Knit-topia and I will probably have a Knit-topia recap on my next recording date of March 27. Which means the next regular episode won’t be until some time in April, and I am sure to have loads of stuff to share with you by then.
