So tonight, in FaceBooks every increasing nosiness about their users, the status boxed prompted "So, how are you doing, ----".
Let me tell you how I'm doing. After going through roughly $4,000 start to finish over the past 8 weeks of Dixie, our 9 yr old Flat Coated Retriever's life (urine & blood work, ultrasound, xrays, 3 appts. with 3 different Eye vets, meds, removal of the eye, biopsy of the eye & typing of the cancer at Univ of Wisc-Madison, post-surgery follow-up visits, cancer meds, special food & treats to try to get her to eat, and finally 2-stage euth & private cremation), about a week before Dixie went to the Bridge, OzzyCat's vet said she heard a heart murmur and wanted to do xrays/ultrasound/blood work to diagnose/begin treating his heart problems--a 12 yr old cat with heart problems. So, how do you THINK I'm feeling?
I'm so sorry about Dixie! It was a lot of money spent, but down the road you won't regret what you did for her. I will purr for you OzzyCat, that your heart murmer can be controlled. It will be a hard decision for your mom but either way, she loves you.
Concat's on your Diary of the day honours!
Lots of purrs,
