Thank you bettafish forum for giving my boy some more time (although I write this post because on reflection I do wonder if I should've perhaps euthanized him at the start... his eye at death appeared to have caved in, or something. Tumor? I have no idea).
And regardless of whether or not you believe in God, please pray for my friend and all the other people being affected after Japan's quake/tsunami.
Am so sorry- must be so very hard on so many levels.
I had a pet go before I could get her to the DVM for euthanasia - I knew a LOT of different things, but it haunts me still that I didn't do certain things at a certain time, waited too long, etc. Be easy on yourself- as best you can. We know you did your very, very best, and Draco knows it, too.
Prayers & good thoughts for EVERYONE -plenty enough to go around (Japanese friends, little Draco, and, of course, the very caring YOU).
