At this point, I'm still just very numb.  I took off work early yesterday
when his condition worsened, and Amy and I talked for about an hour before
deciding to do what was best and not lengethen his suffering (he apparently
was poisoned somehow, and by the end, could hardly walk around and had just
basically given up).  Afterwards, I came home and cried myself to sleep.

Here's some pictures of him in his better days:


Thanks, everyone.  It feels like I've lost a child....
