Thanks for all your sympathy.. My cold is still bad, but at least now my gerbil is at peace. Euthanasia cost $16.50 cdn for a gerbil. And, btw, he was four years old. Older than most gerbils...
That whole entire agony thing was a mild hallucenation due to cold meds and dim lighting. It looked like his left eye was bleeding and had completely scabbed over. It turned out to be a build up of random crap in his tear duct, but he still could barely move. He was so cold and weak to touch, and I couldn't bare to let him go on for another day.
Ah well, I better now that he's no longer suffering, let I can't help but feel even emptier than usual... Now to go cram for a damned math test, present a drama skit in front of a bunch of grade sevens, and to struggle through the rest of tomorrow with this illness and emptiness.
