"I just can't believe it mummy, Lily and JoJo have had babies!!"
A rather unexpected finding today, but Jesse's rather beautiful Lionhead rabbit Lily, gave birth to 5 beautiful babies. JoJo, a Mini Rex, is the proud father, and for the first time in a very long time I actually felt genuine happiness and excitement! Being rather overdue myself, I feel hopeful that the miracle of new life will bring joy back into our hearts.
Since my announcement of our impending new Hall baby, I have to thank some very special friends, some of whom have been through extremely tough times themselves, for all their support, long and rather dark conversations. You all mean the world to me! I also need to praise the NHS yet again, for taking my very dark thoughts seriously, and have put in place a number of safeguards prior to birth and post birth to make sure such an emotional time is made as secure and as possible.
The 29th was a very difficult day but of course every day is empty without our beautiful boy. Re-living every second of Skye's last day was utterly heart breaking. Watching him draw his last few breaths after saying he loved me to infinity brings tears to my eyes while I type this and every time I think of him saying it. I love you too, to infinity and forever.
A very magical moment happened on the evening of the 29th, those of you in Abingdon may have seen it also, but at Jesse's bedtime, we looked out of our bedroom window and there was the most magical full rainbow in the sky. Jesse then dashed through to the front of the house to see if he could see it from his window, which of course he couldn't, but what he did see was even more spectacular and to his squeals of delight and urgent appeal for us to rush through, the three of just just gazed at the most beautiful pink sky. Jesse finally broke the silence by saying the thought is must be Skye making it pink because he knew we were thinking about him and Skye knew how much Jesse just LOVES PINK! Whatever one's beliefs are, it was a truly magical sight.
Without wanting to send another blog post out too soon, we also wanted to let all the Loom to the Moon helpers out there know that BBC's Blue Peter on CBBC, will be doing a feature on Skye's record breaking bands THIS THURSDAY at 5pm, so do tune in if you can and see if you can spot your band!
