Goodbye Hospital, Goodbye Gimli
Speaking of emotions, I'm sorry to say that our beloved little friend Gimli died in my lap tonight. I came home to find him barely breathing, his food and water dish untouched. Apparently he got a hairball which quickly progressed to a bowel obstruction and he just couldn't rebound. It just so happened that where we were sitting on the floor we were leaning up against a rainbow on the wall that was reflecting from our bedroom. Gimli shuddered a few times, gave that last little "rabbit wail" and then it was over.
We laid him to rest in little knitted blanket that I had worked on the last couple days. (Kelly, I can now relate to how you feel about losing your cat not to mention your blanket). Gimli will be much missed.
I'm so glad you're home, but I'm so sorry to hear about Gimli. I know how much you treasured his company and enjoyed having him. Hugs.
I am so so sorry to hear about this.
I hope your health continues to improve though, especially now that you are HOME!
