|Mindy, we can't add much to what the others have said. Mom's been through this with several furchilren, and it is unbearably difficult and painful. Mom sometimes looks at us and almost hopes she leaves first - but then, that would leave us behind, and she couldn't be happy with that.
Listen to your heart and to your regular vet; like the others, I wouldn't go back to the person who treated her so roughly. She's sick, and she needs gentle care. If your vet thinks steroids would help, by all means, try that. You need time to adjust. I can tell you from personal experience: Willy Wonka had acute kidney failure, and I knew he'd be leaving. I nursed him and nursed him, watched over him, agonized over him - it reached the point that, although I certainly did NOT want him to go, I just wanted this to be over with! It was too difficult to watch him slide downhill; the emotional toll was heavy.
Listen to your heart, and have faith in Mindy's Creator; He, after all, is the One who lent her to you, and He's trying to help you prepare for taking her Home. REMEMBER, though, that you, too, will go Home when the time is right, and you and Mindy will be reunited forever - no more parting, ever! In the meantime, she'll be gloriously alive, perfectly healthy, and blissfully happy waiting for you.
May Mindy's Creator bless you with the faith, the strength, the courage, and the wisdom you will need, and then may He bless you with peace of heart.
