​Checking In

Deepest thanks to everyone who offered their thoughts and prayers and support after Ember's passing.  It really means a lot to me.

I know many of you met her or were inspired by her, one way or another. She was a remarkable, one of a kind dog.

The family we adopted her from sent a beautiful memorial flower arrangement. I will share a picture of them and the memorials we are having made for her, as soon as we get them back.

I got really sick with a massive flair with the upset and stress of Ember's passing and other stuff going on with my mom going through cancer treatment.

My jaw and face have been sore and swollen on and off during this time because of it, so I have just been sleeping a lot trying to feel better.

Hope everyone is doing as well as can be.

Ember Crossed Over

A bright new star shines in the sky tonight. Ember crossed the Rainbow Bridge this morning.  We knew she didn't have much longer, but didn't expect it to be so sudden.  She had been improving over the last week, and seemed more like her old self the past few days. She passed peacefully in her sleep at home. March 5th would have been her 14th birthday.  I feel like I didn't do enough for her, compared to all she did for me as my first assistance dog. Ember is in a better place now, no longer in pain.

She will always be with us. Energy cannot be lost. It simply changes forms. Ember dog had a metric ton of energy, the kind that doesn't just cease to exist.  She wanted nothing more than to be as close as she could and make you as happy as she could. Gentle,kind soul. Thank you for everything. We love you. Rest easy now.

Returning For Good, I Hope

No better time to return like the present. I have been away dealing with a lot of things, some of which I cannot really talk about, and others I may. I have some good news to share soon.  How have you all been?  Well as can be, I hope. I have a lot of catching up to do. Point me toward anything you'd like me to know about, and feel free to message me privately with any updates you wish to share. If I miss anything, my apologies. Catching up with months worth of writing from all my friends is no easy task, and goodness knows I am not perfect at it by any means, but I will try my best.  Much love to all of you, and looking forward to catching up.

Hellblade: No WSAD To Arrows Remap?

I was going to play Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice tonight or tomorrow, only to discover you can't remap WSAD to arrow keys. I normally do, for accessibility reasons ( bad fingers and wrists ). Console gaming is clearly more important than PC. Will try and find a work around.
