My baby girl "Q"

by Leanne

My boyfriend and I just lost our baby yesterday. She was diabetic and we had her regulated and in good health for about 2 years. Over the Labor Day weekend she stopped eating and she was vomiting; all she wanted to do was sleep. We took her to a hospital and they put her on slow drip insulin she started to improve on Sunday so they took her off and put her back on injections but her sugars skyrocketed again. They also did an ultrasound on her tummy and found her liver and adrenal glands were extremely swollen and it created an insulin resistance. We could not afford to keep her in the hospital and we could not leave her there anymore. We brought her home and she just declined faster. She would not eat and she just wanted to go outside she was not herself. She was suffering so we had to put her to sleep. Everyone at the vet's office was so supportive and understanding but it's so painful and now there's a huge hole in our hearts. I just wish I could have done more for her. Heaven has a new angel.

My baby girl "Q"
by: Doreen U.K.

Leanne I am sorry for your loss of your baby girl. A Pet in our life whether dog, cat, birds etc. bring such joy and comfort and their loss is still felt in a very strong way. I have lost pets and the grief is different but very painful and hard to bear.
I am thankful for all the memories I have of my pets and I have such wonderful memories.
Try and keep a pet journal and write out all your feelings and memories. Even writing out letters to your pet will help your grief. You will have these memories forever.
In time when your grief has healed, don't rule out buying another pet. You have so much love to give. don't waste it. Keep giving a pet a home with you. But don't hold them so close that you would go through such a difficult grief. Hold them loosely knowing that you can enjoy a good relationship with your pet but that you may lose them one day. You will mature this way and your acceptance of your loss won't last as long as it could when an attachment is so strong.
