Living on Borrowed Time

The vet just called about Nicky. Like I said yesterday, I expected this call but that doesn't mean I'm prepared to handle it.  He's not expelling toxins, so we're living on borrowed time. I'm driving out now to bring him home and hope for a day, or two, or three. Whatever I can just. Just a bit more time before we have to face the inevitable.

I will take him to a friend today for acupuncture.  It's another long, three hour, car trip.  He won't be happy about it.  But perhaps it will help give him some relief and that would be a salve for my heart -- something that won't heal its brokenness, but will be a temporary comfort.


  1. I know it's hard. But the best thing you can do for him is put a smile on your face and love on him. If it is the end, make it a beautiful thing for him, instead of one of sorrow and sadness. You can be sad afterwards, let him see you happy so he's not worried about you.


Thanks for stopping by...I love your comments!
