We'd taken her to the emergency hospital a few days ago hoping it was nothing serious. Sadly, we were wrong. Between the pain meds, anti-biotics and anti-inflammatories she just got worse and worse. She'd given up eating, drinking, walking...it was just awful. She was suffering so and we felt it cruel to keep her hanging on just because we couldn't let go. We'll miss her terribly. She was wonderful and we are brokenhearted.
