First than anything, thank you all guys for your continuous support, I know that these last months were a little lacking in content and I would like to explain you why, I should have done this sooner and for that I apologize.
At the end of January my grandad (97) became ill and got hospitalized, he got a pneumonia which is swelling (inflammation) of the tissue in one or both lungs. It's usually caused by a bacterial infection. My family and I thought that he was going to die there, but he didn't, he had a nice recovery!
After 3 weeks he got discharged from the hospital and my family and I decided that the best place for him to be was here with me, at my apartment. The reason why I agreed to that was because my father (65) had been taking care of him for the last 4-5 years, it was tough, my gramps demanded a lot of time and care, my dad needed a nice break.
Of course he still came to visit gramps, but now he could rest at night in his own bed.
Because of that, I started having more family members and a nurse over to help me take care of gramps or just to visit him and that affected my work schedule for a while, but then I got used to them and they understood that I needed my own space to work. Everything was fine until a couple weeks when the COVID-19 became a threat here in México, I had to ask my family members to keep distance for a while, they understood.
A week passed and gramps started getting weaker, the nurse came everyday to check on him so I could rest a little, he sure helped me a lot. But then, this last wednesday April 8th, my grandfather passed away at night, the nurse even told me that it was probably time to call again my family to tell them, which I did. The family members who managed to come did bid farewell to him.
We had the funeral at the next day, it was a sad moment of course, specially because my gramps was a good person overall, of course I am not going to say that he was a saint, but as a grandson I can easily say that he was an amazing father and grandad, full of love and care for all of those he cherised and even when I am really sad while writting this I am also happy for him, he is finally resting and he will always be remembered as the BEST GRANDAD ever, at least for me.
Now you all know why I haven't been as active here, but don't worry, I plan to submit some works this week, some of them are full color pieces and that is why they are more demanding than other works.
So again, thank you for your support and thank you for your patience.
