Reasons to Cry Like a Baby
("frown" didn't seem adequate)
I had to put my sweet black dog to sleep yesterday... knew it was coming-- she was 14, & had been treated for lymphoma for the past several months-- but it just never gets any easier. We were friends a long damn time, and I miss her very much. Pics & FB eulogy here: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.179450365448242.45816.100001498387941.
Many of the 2-legged creatures in my3-D world fail to understand the sadness magnitude of this event... like, "that's too bad, oh well she was old"... then I kick them in the shins/ balls, and go back to bed.
That's terrible hcm! I really don't know what to say other than that she was beautiful and was very well taken care of and loved.
((((((HUGS))))))) I'm so sorry.
I'm so sorry for your loss, hcm. I know I'll be an absolute wreck when my dog dies (hopefully not for many more years). I'm sure your beautiful doggy had a good life with you and knew how much you loved her.
I am sure she knew how much she was cherished and loved. ((((HUGS))))
i am sooo sorry ((((HCM))))
(((HCM))) i haven't had to deal with that yet so i don't completely understand... i've started crying hysterically when my dog was sick and i didn't know why (needed his anal gland popped)... so i cannot even fathom how you are feeling... he will be waiting for you though in heaven <3
Awwww, jeez, I'm sorry. I have a yellow lab and cried uncontrollably when I watched "Marley and Me". I can't watch the end of that movie anymore.
Sending hugs & positive energy your way!! I tried to check out your FB link but it said "content currently unavailable".
big hugs and comforting thoughts for you, hcm, the loss of an animal companion is so so hard, and it really sucks when the humans you have to interact with don't get that...
she was beautiful, and I'm sure she knew how much you loved her...
She preferred to be with you (while bossing dogs) over anyone else in the world. You gave her a place to belong and she loved you for it.
I'm so sorry. You need to honor your pal in some way.
I hope HCM won't mind my borrowing her thread but this seemed to fit here best:
My husband discovered today he has a detaching retina. He goes tomorrow for bloodwork etc and they will give him an appointment for surgery. It means an overnight stay in the hospital and rest until then. We don't know when the appointment will be. Of course...August here means most of the regular doctors are on vacation.
And my pray-er appears to be broken.
I need to put on a strong face for him when all I want is for someone to hold onto me while I cry.
ohhhhhh yabbit, you guys are in my thoughts, and if it were possible you could cry on my shoulder. i pray for a fast recovery and that he gets in quickly for the surgery.
im so sorry hcm and yabbit. <3 hugs!
UPDATE: Jose will have his surgery on the 10th August. They couldn't take blood today because the labs are not working, until the 4th. Don't know why but there we are. It's very hard for him to sit quiet or lie in bed so prayer appreciated, particularly for a "spirit of repose" or something.
Because he took over so much of the helping-out when he retired and I started teaching English here at home, it's doubly hard for him to just sit.
I told him it's a course in Jose Appreciation, and to let me look after him. He's all I have, on this side of the water.
He will be admitted on the 9th for pre-medication etc and will have to be hospitalised till the 11th. He wants me to come home the night of the day he's admitted because I'd have to just spend a night on a chair next to the bed. I will do that the day of surgery anyway. It's not like I'd be able to sleep here alone thinking about him, anyway.
