    DefaultI'll Be Putting Jake Down Tomorrow

    He just can't walk anymore. None of his legs are working very good anymore. We suspect he had a stroke during the winter. It's been a gradual decline since then. He's become withdrawn lately - loss of appetite, weight loss.... certainly not his ol' self.

    It's time.

    Sad thing is, he's only 11. This is BRUTAL!

    Oh man, I am so sorry! That's awful, but if his quality of life isn't there you have to do the kind and selfless thing. You'll be in my thoughts tomorrow. Godspeed Jake.

    I am so sorry. It is never easy. We never have them long enough, do we? We make these tough decisons because we love them. He knew he was loved. We had to make that decision a little over a year ago for our girl Molly. She had lymphoma & was only 8 1/2. You and your family will be in my thoughts during this sad time.
