Ugh, apparently, the update i had intended for 4th of July never uploaded…oh well. Anyways, I just wanted to let everyone know that Hermy died last Sunday. I came back from the city and found her cold and barely responsive. I tried passively warming her, as recommended by my EMT book, and she seemed to be getting better, but I was tragically and pathetically mistaken. A couple hours later she stopped breathing, and i tried doing tiny chest compressions and mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, but she died anyway.

I buried her that night with her blanket.

I just wanted to say thanks to my friend, Laura, and to my family for calling me and cheering me up. And, thank you to all my friends who said Hermy was cute. She certainly was.

Happy belated birthday, America; I hope the fireworks were spectacular :)
