As most of our readers probably already know, we've had a very tough month as Charlie was diagnosed with a very rare strain of leukemia called megakaryocytic leukemia. While we don't yet know a likely course of action that we will take, nor even a prognosis due to the rarity of the condition, this is the reason for the lack of posts.

In obtaining the diagnosis Charlie became quite poorly for a couple of weeks recovering from biopsies and bonemarrow explorations.

However, over the weekend we did manage a small walk with Charlie, taking him to Beaver Lake in Stanley Park. This was a good choice of place to walk as it's almost completely flat and there are many interconnecting trails so we were able to make the walk as long or short as he wanted. We made it an approx 30 minute gentle walk and this was clearly quite enough for him.

Here he is at Beaver Lake with David.

To be honest we haven't done much else for the past few weeks, although I have had a birthday and we went to see Jay Brannan in concert so we will post a couple of photos from those in due course.

We will keep you updated of progress with Charlie.
