They don’t have any children. They went through many procedures, but still it didn’t work. So they adopted a cat and named Merlin. Merlin was 19 years old, but he did not look or act that way. He was near the end of his life. But she did not want to accept this fact. She could not imagine getting through the day without Merlin. She dialed the vet’s number. Ron said that Merlin had no blood cells and so needed expensive transfusions. White blood cells are replacing them. So Merlin can need expensive transfusions on a monthly basis. That night Merlin had survived. But what happened next is very heart touching.
