Took my dog to the vet this morning. Thought she'd just ate something that had upset her stomach.

Vet thought it might be her liver giving up... She said we're talking months here...

My best friend is slowly dying and I can't do fuck all about it.

I'm supposed to call the vet at 1 o'clock to hear what the tests say...

I'm honestly afraid of calling.

I'm so sorry to hear this. I know how much your friend means to you. My thoughts are with you. <3

Just talked to the vet.

The dog's pancreas is acting up. If she doesn't react to the medication in a day or two she'll need to be put to sleep.

I don't want to keep her alive just to keep her alive for my sake so I'll follow the vet's recommendations. If she doesn't get better by Wednesday I'll have her put to sleep.

And even if she does get better she'll only have months left before I'll still have to make that decision.

I'm taking time off work to stay home with her. I don't want to spend time at work if these are her last days.

I'm falling apart here.

Lorca and apple pie (lorca is a stew from Argentina that my daughter made. haven't a clue what's in it but it sure was tasty.)

My last dog went to the vet to have a biopsy on a very small lump on her throat. She was fine when I went to get her but in the time it took for the assistant to get her out of the recovery cage she died suddenly. Enjoy the time you have left with your friend, don't worry about how long it will be, as all we have is now and every now can be an eternity unless we waste it worrying about a future that may never get here. I will keep you both in my prayers.

Oh hon, I am so sorry. I agree keeping her alive to make you feel better isn't right, but it doesn't make it any easier knowing this ahead of time. Hugs to you and your four-legged friend. <3
