No Odds At All

Moomin is now at a 24 hour facility.  No one knows what is happening but none of it is good.  My daughter drove him to Portland late last night after he screamed in pain when touched and began stumbling and exhibiting "stroke" behavior.  Some loss of use of his hind legs.  She is an emotional mess, exhausted and in pain.

No heroic measures.  Even if all goes well, only weeks or a month or two left.

Sometimes medical intervention just makes things worse.

One of the most agonizing decisions we ever had to make was to put our 12 yr old Akita to sleep. There comes a time when you have to decide if you are doing what is best for you, or what is best for your beloved pet. You always wonder when you'll know if it's the "right time." Trust me, you'll know.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your daughter. I know how hard this is. Remember to breathe.
