Time to say goodbye

Today was not the vet visit we wanted. They didn't even check Casey's heart. The vet looked at how he was standing and walking, and heard how he's been acting lately, and he concluded it was neurological. That means his cancer has metastasized into his brain, and there's nothing left to do. It would be a month at most of watching a painful decline. So I've made the decision that I'll help him to the Bridge on Friday, after two days of the most spoiling I can manage.

Devastated is too mild a word. I can't handle this.

Unfortunately I know exactly how you're feeling. I wish I had words to make it better but there are none. All we can do is show them how much we love them and sadly that also means letting them go. Tomorrow we'll get the results of Bailey's tests and learn if we have any time left with her. My heart is breaking.

I so know what you are going through. Barkley went from limp to full on late four stage cancer in days. My brother was in hospice, 1200 miles away. Amputating the limb and leaving Barkley with strangers for chemo to get a couple of extra months was not an option. We had our time of spoiling and goodbyes and then I flew west to bury my brother.

You are strong and while this will shatter your heart into a million pieces, you will survive. Your heart will never be the same, but no matter the pain, one day you will look back and smile and say you would do it all again in spite of the pain because the moments of love and laughter made it all worthwhile. Hugs.
