Thank you all for your very kind words about Finn. Briton and Hannah don't want to talk about it, so I've only got you to discuss it with. So many of you are pet owners, and understand exactly what's going on. Thank you.
Briton has moved into a house with a friend of his, and yesterday, I was tasked with getting him to U-Haul to pick up his truck. While I was waiting, I took pictures of my hand:

I am managing to knit some, but only about one row at a time. The problem, as you all know, is that knitters are hardly ever satisfied with a single row. "Just one more. . ."
