I haven’t posted in about a week. I know that I probably upset David, and I’m sorry to all of you. Lumen has been so sick and I have been right near him this whole week. Writing has been the furthest thing from my mind, I hope that you all can understand and appreciate it. I have two shows going on right now too – tech this week for one, and tech next week for the other. Talk about excellent timing.
Please let me say thank you publicly to everybody who has sent their well wishes via Twitter and Facebook. Holy crap, what a shit day.
My little man is gone – around 1030 we had to euthanize Lumen, he was suffering big time and his kidneys were two times their normal size. After the last vet visit he perked right up, and when I got back from Jersey on Friday, he was all about hanging out and being awesome. Saturday afternoon he became a bit lax, and then just inside himself. Sunday I kinda knew that he probably needed to be set free of his pain, he had an absolutely terrible day. The final diagnosis from my vet Dr. Graham was that Lumen had an acute form of leukemia that just destroyed his body quickly, even though the test on Thursday showed a negative.
I have a few cutie pictures of this little adorable guy, I never really got a chance to post any of them. I did get to do something awesome though, I got to see a kitten turn from a baby into my little stinker. Daddy’s gonna miss you, pal. You made my life so much better for that short time we had together. It was awesome to love you, buddy!
Crying yet? How about Lumen’s first day home?! BAHAHA! CUTE!
Oklahoma, you can suck it. You’ve taken my two best friends. It’s too bad Lumen never got to meet Rutherford, holy crap, that would have been a crazy party.
