I’ve talked to many of you in the chatroom, but for those that haven’t been in and seen me for a while, I just wanted to let everyone know that Brendol’s fight is coming to an end.
Last week I took her back to her vet and we found that the cancer had metastasized to her lungs. Additionally, it must be elsewhere in the bones causing her pain. I was on my way out of town, so they gave us Rimadyl, Tramadol, and Gab to keep her comfortable. She stayed with her pet sitters and when I left her she was wagging her tail and happy to see all her friends. They kept me updated every morning and evening. She ate really well. Tonight I got back and went to pick her up and her sisters. When I got there, she tried to stand up and couldn’t. The pet sitter said she was having some issues, but eventually able to get the legs working and that they had just given her her medicine so she might just be groggy.
I’ve gotten her home. Carried her upstairs and laid her in bed. She didn’t even fight me being carried and she has always hated to be carried. I have called in to work so that I may spend a last day with her cuddled up. I will call the vet in the morning to arrange an afternoon appointment. I am fairly calm, but my heart is breaking. She is my baby girl and I don’t want to lose her. But I can’t let her suffer any and if she can’t stand up, she’s not living a good life. I will miss her so very much. Please keep us in your thoughts.
