As some of you already know, we lost our little girl yesterday. We got her back from the vet on Wednesday evening. The vet was flushing her kidneys for two days because her creatinine levels were too high, causing her to not eat but drink a lot of water. Anyway, we got her back so she could recuperate until her next check up next week. It wasn’t two hours later she started vomiting fluids again, and she got weaker. At 9pm she had a seizure which caused her to lose function in her hind legs. We stayed up all night to keep an eye on her. At 5am she had another seizure, worse than the first. It was the most heart wrenching thing to witness – seeing her try to fight to hold on but knowing she was probably suffering. With a heavy heart, we decided to make the call. At 6:48am on Valentine’s Day, she passed away. Thankfully the made it quick and painless. She’ll be cremated sometime next week then she’ll be home with us again permanently.
Thank you all for your kind messages and loving thoughts. I know time heals all wounds, but she was more than just a beloved pet and best friend and companion. For right now, her passing has left a void so big that trying to imagine doing anything else but mourn and remember her for the next week or two is just not possible. I know you all understand, but I will be back at a later time and back to reviewing. In the mean time, I have some posts scheduled to go on through the rest of February. So, until then, be happy, make others happy, love and be loved. Oh, and happy reading.
