Still Here

I know it's been a while.  The first week of 2015 has not gone well at all.  First I was really sick after returning from overseas.  Then the caregiving situation took a scary turn.  Finally, I lost my dog on Wednesday; she is gone way too soon.  I hope to be posting about something happy soon.

  2. Oh L, I am so sorry about both your health and your dog! It's been a bad month for pets. My 17-year-old cat went from having borderline kidney disease to full-blown stage 4 kidney disease within a month's time recently. We're giving him sub-cutaneous fluids a few times a week now, but he probably has a few months left at most. It's absolutely heartbreaking to see. Please take whatever time you need to grieve and not worry about blogging, etc.

    1. I'm so sorry to hear that. It is very heartbreaking when you've had a pet that long. They are truly members of the family. It's never, ever easy to lose them.

  12. I do not usually make much sounds on the blogs I follow, but I could not help my wish to say sorry to a fellow dog/pet lover. It is so hard and really it is something we grieve alone because it is hard to explain to others that do not share that deep love. Feel better soon.

    1. Thank you Lauraalyse for stopping by. Some people who have never had a pet don't understand the bond that forms. They really are family members. They have personalities and need/give love and support. From one dog lover to another, thank you.

    1. Thank you Rose. A friend made a less-than-encouraging comment. I know he meant well, but the comment still hurt. I don't think he understands, but that's okay. I won't let it get to me.
