It was a bad Friday the 13th in more ways then one last week.

I had to put my poor Sam to sleep last Friday.I got him off the street about 3 years ago and he has been thru heaven and hell with me and my own health problems.He developed a cyst on his back knee joint which got worse over the last year.I had gone to a few vets and was looking to have his back leg amputated but they said there was nothing they could do.The cyst was to close to vital areas to operate.So I had to just hang on and take him as far as I could.It was getting to the point where he lost a lot of weight and wasn't eating much and was breathing very labored.It was hard for me to make the move to have him put to sleep.I think I should have done it sooner but could not pull the trigger I guess because I was too preoccupied with my own health problems.
On that same Friday the 13th I went to my liver clinic and they put me in the hospital to run tests (I have Hepatitis "C" and kidney complications from the HEP"C").I really need a liver and kidney transplant(at the same time)and my liver isn't in as bad a shape as my kidneys but they won't transplant a kidney if liver is infected with Hep"C" because it will kill the transplanted kidney .So its a catch"22" sort of position I'm in.right now I'm looking at dialysis in the very near future.
