    More Losses??? Need Prayers!!! 06/16/04 11:03 PM

    I'm sure some of you on this board have been in this situation before and I need help--help coping. The struggle seems never ending. I have had Fibro/CFS since '99. It's taken this long to finally realize that no, I won't wake up in the morning feeling all better.

    I got up out of a sick bed today to take my 12 yr. old German Shep to the vet--she's been having diarehha and just hasn't been herself---at first I thought, she's just getting older but decided to take her in to be on the safe side. Here I thought the doc would give her some worm meds and we'd be on our way. She has a massive growth in her intestinal area. The vet said he'd almost bet it's cancer and probably inoperable. Other worst case scenarios would be major spleen or liver damage. I left her there over night so they could run tests late this afternoon and early tomorrow. I am missing her so much and so afraid of the outcome. I feel like I added insult to injury today by leaving her locked up at the vet--in all her years she's never been locked up. She is terrified of the vets--shakes while she is there and now there is a thunderstorm going on and she never leaves my side in storms. I will be there when they open the doors tomorrow.

    How in the world do we let a beloved pet go that has been with us and totally UNDERSTOOD through our darkest hours and theirs. It is breaking my heart. Hubby works 2 jobs and when he left at midnight tonight I started crying yet again and it's like an unending faucet. She is such a part of me and my days in the misery of pain and fatigue. I WILL NOT LET HER SUFFER--that's the greatest gift that I can give her. How do we cope with something like this that to me seems totally earth shatterring??? Everything, esp emotions, seems exascerbated with these disorders b/c we've already lost so much. Please let her, LuJac, be in your prayers tonight. Any advice would be deeply appreciated. I won't be able to snuggle and cuddle with her tonight and tell her how much I love her---you got it--I am obsessed with the love and caring she's given me when no one else is around that much. I am in so much mental pain tonight--it's competing with the physical. Please let us be in your prayers. Much Love and Care, Cat

    I am so sorry for the bad news about your pet and you are in my prayers. Pets sometimes can love us more than others do.

    my heart what your facing and going thru.
    i just recently went thru this with my 2 shepherds.
    how i miss them. they are so precious to us arent they?
    i will pray for you all.
    what helped me is to get another puppy to care for-
    there are so many w/ out homes and i know that is what my babies wouldve wanted.
    and i will askthe LORD to be w/her at vet so she will be calmed and loved.

    I`m so sorry to hear about your beloved pet being ill. I went through something similiar with my border collie. He`d been with me for almost 15 years and his kidneys were failing and he was suffering. I had to have him put down and it broke my heart. He`d been with me through thick and thin.

    I will be praying for a miracle for your dog. I pray that you can find someone who can help him. You could also take him to another vet and get a second opinion.

    Best of luck,
