The end?

1 Oct

Short post today. I feel the end might be getting close now. We’ve switched J to a new, stronger pain med, but he’s hardly getting up any more. He’s had a little to drink and took a few bites of food, but no more. He did just sit up to look at me, though, so I think I’ll go make him some scrambled eggs and see what happens. Feeling really torn today between carrying on in the hope of a few more good days and releasing him from this struggle. Strange to think that he came home with us on a sunny October day almost nine years ago and he may be leaving on the same kind of beautiful fall day. Wow, time moves fast. More in the days ahead…

    I am so very sorry. I can feel your pain. I know how it feels having lost my 14 year old beloved dog to cancer. I will be thinking of you in the days ahead. You have loved Jasper in everyway that you can and done nothing but the very best for him.

    Thinking of you. You and Veronika are the very best parents Jasper could have ever asked for.

    We are thinking of you here in massachusetts today. Wish there was something I could type to make you feel better, but thank you for providing such a loving home and family for Jasper, and sharing his journey with us 😦
