Spending quality time

What a week.  Happy days when Sasha came home, and seemed to be healing, slowly but surely.  Then, panic-stricken terrible days when she took yet another downturn over the weekend -- lethargic, out of it, breathing heavily.  Turns out that now her liver appears to have suffered some damage.

We've decided no more hospitalizations, no more heroic measures.  We just want her to be comfortable, enjoy however many days she'll give us, and try to make each precious moment count.



To that end, we took her to her favorite beach.  She can't frolic like a puppy in the sand anymore, but she can certainly take in the ocean air and watch the waves.

  3. What a hard decision, but one that I know she will appreciate. I'm sure she would much rather be home with you than in an unknown, probably scary place. I'm thinking of you every day, and praying for you. I've been through this twice in recent years, and it never gets easier. As much as it hurts, you have her best interest in mind. I know that however much time this sweet girl has with you, it will be exactly like the life she's always had - overwhelmingly full of love. My heart goes out to you and your family. *HUGE HUGE HUGS*

  4. Gosh, that is such an extremely tough decision, but the right one I think. You are an excellent Mama and we raise our glass to our dear friend Sasha. Enjoy the beach, sun, and any naughty foods you possibly can girlfriend. We all love you.
