My Heart is Breaking
by Kalibeck on 12 January 2012 - 07:48
|Kali has been holding her own, & we scheduled her biopsy for the 18th. But when I got home from work tonight, she was not doing so well. She was limping for the first time, the leg with the original mass is all swollen. And the ear that developed the hematoma was also swollen, & she was holding her head lobsided....when I went to look at that ear she leaned into my hands so hard she fell over. She got back up OK, but she just keeps leaning into my arm, giving me these little kisses. She's reluctant to walk around, or do anything but lay down or lean on me. I guess I'll call the vet in the morning. I'm getting very frightened for her. I'm not sure we're going to make the 18th.....oh Lord strengthen me! She's my very best friend in all the world....jackie harris|

|Thinking of you and Kali. You will never be without your best friend as they fill your heart where ever they are.|
It will be three years since I lost Keira and not a day goes by without a flutter when I think about her.

|My sympathy goes out to you and your faithful companion.|

I can sympathize with you as I've been in that terrible position before. I know it's difficult, but try not to be sad, depressed, or discouraged. She needs your strength and positive thoughts to fight against whatever it is that is going on. The weaker you are, the weaker she will be. Try to embrase her for her, not for what is going on.

|I spoke with the vet this morning, I'm taking her in tomorrow. Thank you for all your well wishes & prayers, we sorely need them. Kali is the brave & strong one of us two, but right now she won't let me out of her sight. I'm still praying for a miracle. jackie harris|
