Our cat, Ralph got sick this past Sunday evening. When we took him to the vet on Tuesday, he was very close to death and we had to make a decision of putting him through a surgery that he may not survive or letting him go. He was a wonderful cat, the best I have ever met in all the world. I am so saddened by his death. Maybe it's because he was just here, playing with us three days ago and now he's gone. Joel and I are pretty much taking turns crying and Hannah is finding things to stop herself from having to think about it too much. I know this may not make much sense. I'll probably read it again next week and think, "What was I thinking? I should really learn to self-edit" But I wanted to let you know that I probably will either not be around very much or here all the time in the next month and this mourning will probably be the reason why.
