Elgar has died

I had to have Elgar put to sleep yesterday.
He had a thyroidectomy last Monday and, for whatever reason – shock, trauma, the lymphoma – he never properly recovered. He was in the vet since Wednesday being treated for hyperglycaemia, calcium deficiencies and failing kidneys; he seemed like he was starting to perk up (I spent Thursday and Friday afternoon and Saturday morning with him) but by Sunday morning his liver had failed. I couldn’t even have him home with me for one last night, it would have been too cruel.
Things you love shouldn’t be allowed to be that fragile.
