You'll know when the time is right. I wish we ALL were closer to you. I wish there was more we could do for you both.

I can speak from experience with this one; when Mordred was dieing, someone told me to make a list of all the things he loved to do. As he can't do them anymore, cross them off. When the list is about 75% crossed off you need to really start looking at qualilty of life.

I'm sorry that this is happening, I hope you are able to keep her comfortable and spend time together.

That is great advice

I feel like such a big baby

I can't do anything at this point, but think of her and be sad. I want to be happy to have spent good times with her

It is going to take a while for you to get there T. The pain, hurt & anger never go away, you just get used to them. And you are NOT a baby, she is your love. I would be very surprised if you were acting any differently.

Have you been in touch with Carolann?


I'm sorry I'm not sure who carolann is can you e-mail me or send a PM I'm such a wreck I can't think

She is doing worse



How do you know when it is time? I don't want her to suffer. I don't want to be selfish. I want to be strong for her. It is so hard

I wish I had more firends close by. I lost touch pretty much with everyone I was close too growing up over the years after my mom died of cancer I had a really hard time and this brings it all back


I PM'ed you this morning. I hope you got it.

Hugs,
Dee

Got your pm... THANKS

I think concreterose had told me to ask her for it when I was ready, but it has been such a crazy ride of lows that I honestly was so overwhelmed and didn't thik to ask her

Sock-M really isn't eating much and I don't know if she can help at this point, but I e-mailed her

Is there anything that you can get her to choke down?
My vet told me the reason they don't eat is because there are chemicals in tumors that take away the appetite.

Have you tried baby food, or something kind of smelly?

When Pookie stopped eating, I went and bought up a few different kinds of meats and cooked them to try to get her appetite up by the aroma.
For a few days she would eat chicken, then stop, so I would switch to hamburger or eggs, or something like that.

If there is something she WILL eat, there is a whole food supplement you can give her that will give her some needed nutrition while she is not eating much...I gave it to Pookie (when she would eat it) mixed in with a little almond butter, or egg, or whatever I could get her to eat that day.

It really helped to get some nutrients into her so she could fight a little longer...She would get a bit stronger when she would take it. Perfect Food .
I feel SO bad for you :(

Try Gerber baby food (I think it's called 2nd Stage), the meat varieties. When our old girl Sam couldn't/wouldn't eat, she'd scarf down jars of that stuff. It's a great mixer for the dog food, too.

My thoughts are with you and Miss Sock-M every day.

I am so sorry. My heart breaks for you.

Request From Rainbow Bridge

Weep not for me though I am gone
Into that gentle night
Grieve if you will, but not for long
Upon my soul's sweet flight.
I am at peace, my soul's at rest
There is no need for tears.
For with your love I was so blessed
For all those many years.
There is no pain, I suffer not,
The fear now all is gone.
Put now these things out of your thoughts,
In your memory I live on.
Remember not my fight for breath
Remember not the strife
Please do not dwell upon my death,
But celebrate my life.

My heart is broken for you Therese, I wish I knew what to say to make you feel better but I know there is nothing. You gave her the best T, up to the very end of her life she had the best life could offer her with you. Take care of yourself & let us know if there is anything we can do for you.
