I will probably return to posting when it helps more than hurts, but just now I can’t do it.
July 1, we lost my beloved Charlie to a sudden onset of dehydration and pneumonia. Fluids for the dehydration went to his lungs and made the pneumonia worse. Antibiotics caused liver failure. Nothing but heroic measures could have given him a slight chance of prolonging his misery.
Respecting his wishes, we brought him home with Hosparus providing hospice care.
He was active on Friday, ill on Saturday, hospitalized on Sunday, in ICU on Monday night, came home on Tuesday, and died on Wednesday.
I miss you all. Each one of you who comments or whose blog I visit is a spark of joy in an already dark soul.
