Right up until Eileen got the call from the vet with the news about Boots. For the readers who have asked, he was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia and is not expected to make it. It's really rough on Eileen, as Boots was her best friend for 5 years. Everyone here is waiting to hear how he did over the weekend; that will determine the best course of action for him and for Eileen. So your good thoughts for them are still appreciated.
Edited to add: Boots died last night. R.I.P., Boots.
