How Do You Make The Call??
Sebastian, mine and Dan's first baby, is getting closer and closer to the end. But, how do you make the call???? Sebastian, "Old Man" as we nicknamed him a few years back is atleast 15-16 years old. He has lived a great life. Has lived through 3 babies, a cat and a big chocolate lab puppy. He has been cranky for a couple of years now, thus the "Old Man" nickname. His eyes are almost all the way glassed over, he can't hear and Dan thinks he is peeing downstairs now. If that is the case the call will have to be made soon, we can't have that going on. But he has been our best friend for so many years now, a part of our life. How do we just make the call to say goodbye?? God could help us out by just taking him, but would that be easier? Most likely it would happen when Dan is gone and I wouldn't know what to do. Every night when he falls asleep on Hannah's bed I wonder, "will he wake up tomorrow morning?". Our vet won't even help us out and give us a shove in that direction. He wants us to make the call. Ugh! What a hard day that will be, but when will it be?? How do you say goodbye to a friend??
