Noah's at the bridge now

We had to have Noah put to sleep 12/29/09. He had started to go down hill a couple of months ago. Christmas Eve, he started coughing non stop and it just wore him out. I took him to our Vet and while we were there, he had a Grand Mal siezure. From there, we went to the hospital where they kept him overnight and run several tests on him.
His glucose level was down to 19 which is what caused the seizure. The tests showed that he had developed Cushings Disease and that threw his insulin level off. Normal liver enzymes in a dog are around 300. Noah's was 2200. He also, had arthritis, he was blind, he was losing weight and had become more and more confused. He wouldn't have gotten any better and if we had brought him home, he would have kept going down hill and had more seizures.
I know, it was the right thing to do, but it hurts so much. My heart is truly broken in a million pieces.
A big thanks to those who have been sending thoughts and prayers our way. It's much appreciated.
My baby is an angel now and I know that he's not suffering anymore. He'll be in my heart forever and I'll never stop loving him.

Well, I's doin' a liddel betterer. Momma taked me to my very own Dr. Ken and him taked a x-ray. Him sayed I don't gots anything wrong wif my spine but it cud be my shoulder. I limp sumtimes an kinda favor my rite leg.
Ya see, I wuz abused when I wuz jest a liddel puppy afore momma and daddy finded me. When they first getted me, the Vet checked me out an took pichurs of my bones. Him sayed that I had a fraktured shoulder that nefur heeled rite cuz nobuddy taked me to the dogtor. Him sayed the onliest thing that cud cause that kinda injery wuz either sumbuddy kickin' me reely hard or they throwed me up against a wall. I'd been wanderin' on my own fur a long time before I was finded. I hadn't eaten in awhile and wuz purdy skinny.
Momma taked me home, gived me a haircut and a baf. Then her gived me lots a yummy food.
Anyhoo, Dr. Ken thinks I's hafin' truble from that old injery to my shoulder.
Him cut me way back on the steroids. In fact, I's almost done wif em'.
I's movin' round more but I's still purdy slow. Momma still makes me rest alot, but I don't reely mind that. I's jest glad the pain ain't as bad as it was.
One thing tho....I sure is gettin' lotsa atenshun...an I luff that!!!!!!

They sended me home wif muskle relaxers and steriods....Momma don't like that cuz I's a diabetic an steroids can make yur sugar lefels go crazy. I's unstable anyhoo.....We's hopin' it don't meen surgury cuz I don't do good wif that. I haf a hard time comin' out frum under and they don't like to do it cuz of my diabetes....Momma is gunna take me to see my very own Dr. Ken tomorrow. Her wants a secont pinion...Ya know what????
