This might be a rough time for many of you. Do what you feel you need to do to get through it. Remember, someone is here almost all the time to talk to you.

Sara ... Thank you so much for just being here for me as always. It never ceases to amaze me how all of you can surround another with encouragement and hope when all are going through grief which I know drains one's energy so quickly.
I am having surgery done this coming week for my little Tootsie to take the tumor out and give her a few more months or so. Some people think I'm crazy to put the $1500 out, but I love her and as long as she's not in pain I want her to have a good quality of life and have her with me a little longer before it's time for her to go.
I wish you the very best for today and hope it is full of peace, light and joy.
Sorry to hear about Tootsie prognosis. We had to go through that with Diane's dog Roxie. She said she knew I was okay because Roxie didn't like men very well, but took to me right away. They suspected tumors, did Surgery they were all over. Had to have her but down without waking up. People that aren't dog owners don't understand how much of a part of the family they become. I'm sure you gave Totsie a home and Love that most dogs could only dream off. That's the best thing we can do.
Marsha.....I'm so sorry to hear this news of Tootsie. My heart is breaking for you. I wish I had that magic wand and could make this okay but all I can do is pray for peace for both you and Tootsie.
Dear Rolland ... Thank you so much my dear friend to take the time to acknowledge my sweet Tootsie and to let me know some of your private life regarding Janice and her parrot Oz. Yes, they do become a great part of our lives and I understand totally that Oz is a connection to your dear Janice; same applies with my 2 dogs with my Ernie and I. Once they are both gone that's the last connection to the life Ernie and I have and I also understand that's a frightening thing one doesn't want to look forward to. When Ernie passed away April 27, 2011 our dear comical cat Molly (10 years old) passed suddenly and no warning 5 months after that and now yet I face another loss. I'm angry to a degree and I suppose it's because I can't make her well. It's about quality time with Tootsie as nothing else can be done for her. I refuse Chemo or Radiation and not because of money, but it's a terrible thing to put your pet through with the same outcome in 99% of this type of cancer.
May I suggest that you put in your Will where Oz will go when it is your time because many people don't do this with their pets and as you know Oz will live to be a ripe old age. Just a suggestion in case you haven't.
I hope your days are more peaceful Rolland and again that you for your concern and encouragement.
My dear extended family ...
I got an unexpected call from my vet about my little dog Tootsie and the news stunned me. The tumor is cancerous (carcinoma) and spread. I have to go in to see him tomorrow to see whether to take the tumor out (fast growing) and God only knows how long she'll have or, take the tumor out and get a little more time together. I am so full of heartache as she's been such a sweet and loving companion and was part of Ernie and I and that's what makes it so damn hard! I am been crying my eyes out wondering when all this hell is going to end and I find a little peace and joy.
Thanks for those that encouraged me and kept my hopes up and I love you all for that.
