SimonSimon is gone. He died about 1:15 am this morning (the 18th). He was suffering something sudden and debilitating; based on blood tests the doctor said it was almost certainly cancer. He was quite frail already and we didn’t want to put him through any surgery, chemo, etc. Other than being hungry and a little confused, and having doctors poking at him, we don’t believe he was in pain or suffering, but that it was likely to go that direction given much longer.

There’s more to tell but it can be told later. Thank you to all of you who wrote with love and support, including esmerel, thistle_chaser, tersa, agrimony, da_zhuang, ciannait, demariana, waterowl, peragrine, aelfsciene, misty_shadows, and to C and D for hanging with us while we awaited news.

      Thank you. We will have some great memories to keep. I know you recently dealt with a loss of your own, so I much appreciate the love and support. I can imagine Simon and Macha getting along famously.

      Thank you also for the comment on Miche’s post. Be well.

    Oh Greg, I’m so sorry that Simon’s gone and I’m sorry that I didn’t see this last night. I know both you and Miche loved him so very much. Please give each other lots of hugs from Gandalf and me – Miche, you, the kitties. Take care of yourselves.

      Thank you, dear one, it is appreciated. We’re looking forward to seeing you soon. We’ll probably have a bit less energy, but both the distraction and relaxation will be welcome. We don’t get to see you as often as we’d like, lately, but we always feel energized, uplifted, and hopeful on seeing you.

      Thanks also for the great comment to Miche’s post.

      See you soon!
