Ice, the Senior Rescue
Posted 13 July 2009 - 07:58 AM
After giving her the best years of her little life, this is her reward.Boston Terrier Rescue nabbed her and called Leslie. Ice (Izzy) has been here 2 weeks. She has been seizeing and peeing every hour and a half (thank god for potty pads) I had bloodwork done cuz I was very suspicious of an endocrine problem. Diabetic type seizures frequently during the day and night no matter how frequently I gave her snacks.
The results are in and they are not good. Izzy has a diagnosis of insulinoma. Not curable and probably advanced.
I have live experience with this cancer as I lost my 1st greyhound girl Tessa to this.
I dread making that final car ride to the vets. Izzy deserves so much better than this fate. I'll keep her with me for just a little longer so she can get filled up with lovies and have a bit more sunshine time. Some times it really truly sucks to be a rescue caregiver.

But, mostly bless you for giving this girl a loving ending to her life. Yes, I know how much it sucks to be a rescue care giver. Stay strong and know you are giving her so very much. Hugs

You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion". ....

with them, how real the emptiness is, how profound is the silence these creatures leave in their wake."
