Tough Decisions Ahead…

We got some bad news yesterday. We had noticed that Rosie was starting to throw up what she was eating, so we knew it was time for another visit to the vet. We had a heart to heart with our vet and looked at the facts…Rosie is throwing up what she eats, she still can’t walk, and she has no control over her bodily functions. We are trying some new medicines to take care of the “bathroom problems.” We are going to give that a couple of days to see if we can make a difference there. If nothing changes with that problem, then we will probably have to put her down on Wednesday. If that gets better, we are going to give her until the end of the week to see if she can start walking again. If no change there, then we will have to put her down, probably Saturday. The prognosis isn’t good. The vet said that sometimes she will see changes in the second week, so she felt that we should at least give Rosie that chance. I am heartbroken. We have worked so hard, but at the end of the day, her quality of life as it stands right now is just not good. We are doing everything we can to keep her comfortable and as happy as she can be. She is not in any pain, just very frustrated because she has such a wild little spirit, and not being able to walk, let alone run and jump and climb like she always has her whole life is just so hard on her. Please pray for us all this week. I am nervous about going back to work and leaving her here by herself during the day. I have no choice…I had most of last week off. I think my mom is going to come and help. We will get through it. I will keep you posted.

Aww, I'm so sorry to hear this. You guys have done everything you could to bring Rosie back. She will let you know what the right thing is. Lots of love and Peace.
