12. The real heartbreaker is that I was out of town
I took him to the vet Thursday, before I left town. My husband was the one who had to ultimately make the decision.. I called him Friday to find out the results of the tests, and he said the vet told him to call Saturday morning after they had rehydrated him, and observed him for a while..

He said he cried for about an hour after having to give the orders to the vet. He couldn;t bring himself to go there. :cry:..

In our family, I am always the one who has to make those kinds of decisions, but he had to be the one to do it for "his own boy".
