from my book

crytpsporidiosis

one dangerous internal parasite that cannot be cured is crytosporidum, somtimes known among hobbyists simply as "cryto" the infection itself is called crytosporidiosis. sighns of cryto are similiar to other parasitic infections and include vomiting,severe swelling and bloating and rapid weight lose. cryto is feared among hobbyist and commercial breeders because it can be present in an animal for two years or more before causing symptoms. animals infected by cryto are doomed to die slowly and painfully and should be humanely euthanized

Awful news but being put to sleep is the kindest thing you can do for him, so thumbs up to you. Crypto is awful and there's nothing you can do unfortunately.
You're doing the right thing, I'd be just as upset as you.. :(
