(please note that the words that follow are for my memory-I want remember today exactly as it happened)
In November Kasey started coughing a lot. The vet decided to try some antibiotics to see if that would help. It didn't. She was on and off of them for 3 months getting higher/stronger doses each time. Early this year we took her back in for a chest scan and they found a lump in her lungs. It was decided that it would be too hard on her to biopsy. We left the vet that day knowing that it was probably the worst case scenario but praying for a miracle. She started dropping weight and then stopped eating her dog food. She had even begun to cough up blood. This week she started taking on fluid and lasixs was not helping.
When we woke up this morning we knew it was time.
Artie called to make arrangements at the vet and we took some time to say our goodbyes. That was one of the most precious hours of my life. All the dogs were piled in the bed with us while Artie and I took turns loving on her.
Finally it was time to go. We wrapped her in a blanket and headed to the vet. Artie carried her as we were ushered into a side door. It was very quick and she did not fight. She went right to sleep as we were stroking her head.
Artie and I left there with a broken heart but having peace about our decision. Once we got home we just held each other and sobbed.
If you could pray for peace that would be much appreciated. She was a part of our lives for 10 years.
Kasey you will be so greatly missed.
