I write this to all you wonderful fans .. But it’s with great sadness and a heavy heart that I have to let you all know that my little boy got his blood test back this morning and it’s sad news.
Scrappys kidneys are giving in and he has a liver disease which more test are being done.
But at best he might get six months.
