Many will remember that we adopted Mariner 10 years ago after he had suffered from a brain injury that left him blind and having seizures. He was the reason I created the two groups "Health and Medicine" and the :Seizure Group".
He had been doing well for many years and the last few he had more energy and playfulness then he had had for a long time. Over the past few weeks he declined quickly. He was unable to stand and lost interest in food. His liver was failing.
He tried to stand but he couldn't, he had lost his quality of life - it was time.
We have many pleasant memories but now it hurts.
We miss him.
