    Default Billie

    sigh - well now Billie is unwell. She is at the vet hospital right now for overnight observation. We did xrays and ultrasounds and her cancer hasn't spread - though she has a dodgy looking kidney and an enlarged adrenal gland.

    Atm the biggest issue is protein in her urine - but we will deal with things tomorrow. For now she is heavily sedated and on pain meds at the vet.

    SIGH

    I know she is on borrowed time - she was given 6-12 months some 15 months ago - but I adore her and I really don't think I will cope well losing another beastie so soon after the boys.

    Jeepers Occy, I am so sorry. I hope Billie had a comfy night tho I guess you had a restless one. She has had extended time with you for sure and that is something to be grateful for. However, it doesn't make it any easier for you. Sending healing vibes to Billie.
    The more people I meet, the more I like my dogs.

    I just don't know what to say Occy. I feel for you so much.

    The year I lost three in 8 months ripped my guts out. That was Herne my first Deerhound, Mary my first Pug and Mancat the dog-like cat I bottle reared. I don't think I'd ever felt so weak and empty before. Not even when my mother died.

    Hugs Occy. Thinking of you.

    Billie had xrays and scans two days ago - whilst her cancer hasn't spread, she has kidney damage and likely has a cancer on her adrenal gland. She has gone downhill quickly - I believe that the death of Flash was the final straw. She now has pneumonia. I think I will be saying goodbye this afternoon. I just don't know how I will cope without the bed hogging and snoring, without the dancing for breakast and dinner - and any time I was in the kitchen and without the little face waiting for me when I get home from work.
