Life...

I think I am going to take a break from blogging for a bit...I don't want to bore anyone with my sadness...Lucy is not doing well...she simply refuses to eat. She has had fluids and shots and appetite stimulants...I have tried sardines, tuna, turkey baby food...Roxie Blue and I have developed quite a taste for turkey baby food...lol...

But all Lucy has eaten in days is bananas and yogurt...and not very much of that. The next step is an ultrasound and forced feeding but I think Den and I can't go there.

I cling to Lucy because she is a link to my mom and dad...I know that sounds weird but she loved my mom and loved their house...we have a few days to think about things...but nothing looks bright right now...she has lost weight just from last Wednesday and both of us are tired of going to the vet...both of us are just tired...I just want to do what is best for her...watching her constantly turn away from food is killing me...seriously...




Thanks for listening...I will be back soon...I just need a few days...

  1. I have gone through this with a cat and a dog in the past.
    My humble opinion: don't do force feeding. She might have a blockage (an object, a tumor, etc) and can't handle anything going down.
    I know you will do the right thing by her. In the end we are our furbabies' guardians and they rely on us to keep their best interest in mind. God bless Lucyand you in this difficult time.

  2. It's definitely hard when you have to make decisions like this but to make this a little easier, try to just focus on keeping her comfortable. She's lived a very comfortable life thus far and she will continue to be in comfort no matter what your decision. That is what you focus on, and that is what will get you through.

  5. My daughter's dog went through something like this...he loved his food, so when he wouldn't eat, it was very sad. And finally we had to put him down, as they couldn't do anything for him. A very sad day.

    Maybe yours will turn out okay....but if it doesn't, you know that you and Lucy had some wonderful times together.
