Happy gotcha day

Posted by letumrun, 15 September 2009 - - - - - - · 1,687 views

Pneumo its your gotcha day, I am remarkably sullen and sad.  I feel as if I let you down so much today.  Thw sun was so warm today, you would have loved it so.  I miss you, I wish I could have done more, I would do anything to feel you curled up against me again.

"Nothing can make up for the absence of someone we love, and it would be wrong to try to find a substitute, we must simply hold out and see it through.

That sounds very hard at first, but at  the same time it is a great consolation, for the gap, as long as it remains unfilled, preserves the bond between us.

It is nonsense to say that God fills the...

For every kiss you have given and every time your tail wagged, every bad mood you have forgiven, the time - too short we had,

run free.

Your life became painful, a decision was made to let you go.  
My heart won’t stop breaking, “It was for the best” - yes, I know.  

Now you are running, the breeze is your friend,
as I feel it wisp by me I am reminded...

This site has given me so much time to reflect on all that life brings about.  My last blog entry was about Pneumies birthday.  We never actually thought he would make it the day we adopted him.  Despite all odds, and ant medical reason, he made his birthday and in to the month of July.
Sadly, his time is coming to an end.  My heart is so heavy, but his...

Its your party! Pneumos birthday

Pneumo turned 6 today and we are pleased as punch to celebrate!  As I have stated before he has taught me so much about making the best out of bad situations and grace under pressure.  He has been a gentleman through each breath, even on his bad days.  I am not sure I would have been so good natured and kind if I had to fight the same fight.  But he...

Pneumo struggles

What do you do when you cant breathe?

How do I hear the echoes of my fathers respiratory failure in every breath Pneumo takes?  I know this entry is crossing a boundry for me.  It is going from letting you know about my dogs, and my superficial me to me releasing all that is pent up since my dad died.

I hear Pneumo breathe all night long, just as I...

Numb but the tears don't stop

My fathers death is so new, but we HAVE to keep moving on.  My daughters 5th birthday was Friday and her birthday party with all her classmates was yesterday.  Paste on a smile and muddle through.  Its a good thing I am numb to things I suppose.  I hardly remember the funeral, just hundreds of people standing in line for hours to pay their respects to...

I have always found it strange how we refer to dying as passing away or losing someone.  As if I misplaced them and I will find them soon.  Dying, though it may be a natural part of the life cycle, is not natural to accept.  This morning that became rather evident.

My father died.  He struggled so long with MSA, and gently he stopped breathing.  Our Lord...

When we adopted Pneumo we knew his health was not the best.  His breathing is gettin worse and worse and he relies on his inhaler more and more these days.  He is up to using his rescue inhaler 3 or 4  times a day now.  I hate to hear him struggle and our vet told us if it helps use it to help make him comfortable.  We use it as frequently as he needs it. ...
