Subject: [Felvtalk] Cole's last fight

It is with great sadness that I have to say that my Cole has lost his fight. 
The last 2 weeks he has been recieving epogen shots two times a week and we 
found out today that the shots have not improved his anemia. He in fact got 
worse and his hemoglobin went down to 9% from 11% 2 weeks ago. He has also lost 
an addition 1lb in 3 days because he would not eat. It was the hardest thing 
ever to have to make the call in putting him to sleep or not, but he has been 
so lethargic and down the last couple days, I had no choice. He was not in good 
enough shape to even attempt any other treatment at this point. I wish I would 
have caught this earlier and maybe treatment would have been better. He had 
been living with Feline Leukemia since birth and he lived to be almost 7, so at 
least I was blessed with that time with him. Right now the hardest thing is to 
come home and not have him waiting at the door for me. I am praying that I made 
the right decision and didnt
 jump the gun on putting him to sleep, but I just could not take it if I knew 
that I was prolonging his suffering. I am having him cremated and we are having 
a special urn made for him with his picture. All I can say is that having Cole 
for a short 6 1/2 years was worth the heartache I have now, he was my rock and 
was there for me when I needed him and now it is my turn to be there for him. 
Thank you all for your support and words of advice, it helped me make it 
through the 2 toughest weeks of my life. I love you Cole.
