He's gone.



6:11 pm.

They were having to increase the valium amounts and frequency to control the tremoring to a point where they couldn't give any more and it still wasn't controling it and everything else took a massive crash. I held him. I talked to him for a little while and for a moment I think he came to a bit. Not fully but from a vacant abyss a flicker of recognition in his eyes, just for a moment, as if his spirit were brushing against me the way he used to brush his head against my hand on a walk when he doubled back to me before continuing on his way. Then he sighed, relaxed and was gone.

I'm not sure how it was supposed to end but this wasn't it.
