my boy is gone

clyde died early this morning while we were asleep... i slept on the sofa-bed with him and steven slept on the loveseat... steven woke up at around 4:30 and discovered clyde was no longer with us.......

i stayed awake with him as long as i could last night... i knew things weren't good... i could see it in his eyes... he felt so horrible... i fell asleep around 12:30 but woke up at 1:44... he was still here.... steven woke up around 2:30 and checked on him and he was still here... then he woke up again at 4:30 and he was gone......

clyde and i laid face to face for a while in the bed... i told him to go if he felt he needed to... that it was ok... i knew he was miserable staying...

i thank god that he died in his sleep... peacefully... at home... in bed... with people that loved him laying right next to him... he wasn't alone... and i did not have to put him down... the last thing he felt was not a needle... and he didn't die on a hard table at a doctor's office... he was at home... with me... and i'm so grateful for that.........

steven and i took took him to the vet's office around 8:30... the people from the crematory will pick him up from there sometime today... i'll get his ashes back by wednesday......

i already miss him so much.......... this place does not feel right without him...
