Simon passed away around 12:40 this morning. I know that because I was giving him food and Don said, "Watch Simon". I thought he meant so Simon didn't go out the open hatch. No, he was hiccup breathing. He wasn't actually hiccuping, but it looked like it. I came into the office and updated my Facebook status that he was having a hard time breathing and I was fearing that he wouldn't be with us much longer. I went out and he was laying on his side. Yes, my little friend was gone. I needed to grasp this, so I came back into the office and wrote that he passed. My Facebook status said that my last post had been 12 minutes earlier. Rats live about 2 years, and Simon and his brother were guessed to have been born early September 2007. We got them October 30, 2007. Oh, my little buddy....I cried so hard last night, and had sad, sad dreams.
