Just over 8 years ago when I thought my world was crumbling around me, this little furball came into my world and hasn’t left my side. She was my saving Grace- she and I have traveled, kayaked, hiked, played, and cried together in those 8 years.
Last week I was away from her overnight, I was thinking about this past summer how she was so sick for quite awhile. She rallied through it and life goes on. I had just been thinking about all we had been through when yesterday she has to go back to the vet because she’s losing weight. We have gotten to know all the vet staff well –
Turns out it could be diabetes! Well for starters WTF, what does this mean?? Going through all the info I need to know what could be.Thinking about what does life look like with a dog & diabetes?? Shots a few times a day, blood testing every day.Can I do this?? All night that is what was in my head, can I do this??
The rest of the night Grace slept on my lap while I worked. Every once in awhile she would look up at me as if to say “thank you” for taking her to the vet’s office like she knew it was to help her. I don’t know what will happen where this is going, but omgosh I love this girl.
Somehow we will kick some grass on this shit on move on together-
