mojosmom: (Lilith)
I have just come from the vet's, where I had to have Lilith put to sleep.  I have seen her slow down tremendously over the last few weeks, and at first put it down to old age (she was about 16) and her arthritis.  But then she stopped eating and drinking, and she was too weak to walk far without stopping to rest.  Yesterday, I took her in, and the vet said her stomach was very distended, and took x-rays, which showed a lot of fluid, signifying either a tumor or organ failure.  They kept her overnight to see if IV fluids and meds helped.  They didn't.  And she was hurting.  So I to made the decision to let her go, and held her and petted her as she went.

She had kept me company for more than fourteen years.  I am going to miss her terribly, but I know it was the right thing to do.
