Default It's tearing me up..inside

It's tearing me up..inside..We took Amber home and she acts fine..I know what all three bloodwork panels said,that kidneys and liver values are high..One is so high it's off the chart in all tests...

I just don't want to make a mistake and kill her or make a mistake and she suffers..

Vet says it won't get better..only worse.. OMG..I can't kill my babies... I can't stop crying...

I don't know what to do..

Michelle, my heart is breaking for you and Al.

Michelle, all of your Spoiled Maltese family know that you have been the most wonderful Mommy to Amber and Emily. And, we support you during this very sad and difficult time.

I haven't been online to read posts ... but, when Walter asked me if I knew about Amber and Emily ... then, of course, I wanted to be here for you (and, Al), too. All of us will be thinking of you ... and, our hearts and love will be with you.

I can only imagine how deeply sad you are feeling. It has got to be almost unbearable. Michelle, my heart is breaking for you ... reading your words expressing how you feel about your babies. We all support you, in that you are making the right choice for your babies. The most loving act... is for you to help them rest in peace ... so that they will no longer be feeling discomfort and pain.

Michelle, it is extremely difficult for you to say goodbye (for now ... until you are reunited once again) ... because we grieve the hardest ... for those that we truly love the deepest. And, you have the deepest kind of love for your precious babies.

I pray that you will look back and know that you did the right thing. I pray that as each day passes ... you will be blessed with peace, strength, and comfort. And, I pray you will feel the warm beautiful light ... as your heavenly angels, Amber and Emily ... surround you with their undying love.

Michelle, your Spoiled Maltese family loves you. Although we are not there in person with you ... we will be there with you in loving spirit.

With love and healing hugs for you, Michelle ...

Marie

Michelle, you are not killing them. Euthanasia is a gift we can give to our pets so they pass peacefully and end their suffering. If you ask people if they regret their euthansia decision, close to zero percent of people say they feel they euthanized too soon, whereas MANY have complicated grief from waiting too long and prolonging their dog's suffering.

Michelle, I read your heartbreaking words above and hear the doubt you have about making the right choice for your precious babies. You are with them and see how they are doing, we are not. I know you would not want them to suffer needlessly or prolong their suffering. I'm praying you will have peace and strength and know, beyond a shadow of doubt, when its time to say goodbye and let them rest in peace. Trust your gut......

How I wish all of us could physically be there with you at this time and our arms could surround you with hugs & hold you close to our heart...... Michelle Know we are hugging you with our prayers, love, and thoughts.

"Do not mourn my passing
for if you could only see
by slipping all my earthly bonds,
I'm young again and free
By day I run the Heavenly fields,
my body healthy and strong
At night I sleep at Angel's Feet,
lulled by Celestial Song
So do not mourn my passing,
just close your eyes - you'll see
I'm once again that frisky pup,
just as you remember me."

Michelle, the others have said it all. You'll be giving them freedom from their physical constraints and holding them in your heart forever.

Michelle my heart goes out to you today. I am so sorry. Years ago I had to say good-bye to my dog and cat at the same time so I know how painful this is. We are all here for you and thinking about you today.

The Last Battle

If it should be that I grow frail and weak
And pain should keep me from my sleep,
Then will you do what must be done,
For this the last battle can't be won.
You will be sad I understand,
But don't let grief then stay your hand,
For on this day, more than the rest,
Your love and friendship must stand the test.

We have had so many happy years,
You wouldn't want me to suffer so.
When the time comes, please, let me go.
Take me to where to my needs they'll tend,
Only, stay with me till the end
And hold me firm and speak to me
Until my eyes no longer see.

I know in time you will agree
It is a kindness you do to me.
Although my tail its last has waved,
From pain and suffering I have been saved.
Don't grieve that it must be you
Who has to decide this thing to do;
We've been so close we two these years,
Don't let your heart hold any tears.

Michele as per parents this is our most difficult decision. I don't know if it is harder when it is suddenly thrusted upon us or if it is harder when they are in decline and we need to find the right moment before they suffer. Your heart will tell you if the time is right.
