Sic Transit Gloria Eddy
My Latin's pretty rusty but that should translate as, "So passes the glory of Eddy". When I went to bed last night, all was right in my world, I was going to put up a small progress post this morning that Eddy's treatment was starting to work, for the first time since the 29th his poo had turned red brown and was the consistency of a cow flop, which weird as it sounds was HUGE. A few minutes ago I received word Eddy went to sleep and didn't wake up. At the moment details are sketchy due to telephone problems, bad roads and floods. I just know he wasn't alone when he passed, he wasn't with his Mother, but he most definitely was not alone. Eddy's short time here has changed a lot of people lives, brought strangers together, created bonds of friendship that seem strong
For all of those who have been directly or indirectly involved in Eddy's story, I want to say thank you on his behalf, from the bottom of my heart .
Good-bye Eddy, forever dream, of your Momma's gentle touch, of tall green grass, clean pools of cool water with silky mud bottoms, trees covered with tender young leaves, and take your place, running with the big bulls from long ago, let the earth quietly tremble as you pass.I'll post more just as soon as I hear it!
