Saying Goodbye to Winston

On Friday morning the test results came in for Winston. They were not good. He was severely anemic. His gums were white. The vet explained that due to his age and his kidney disease he would only get worse. There wasn't anything to be done for him. I had noticed that he was eating less and less. He was listless and lethargic. The spark in his eyes and his spunky sense of fun was gone. His legs would suddenly give way. All this happened within just a few days. I didn't want him to hurt like this anymore so I took him into see Dr B one last time on Friday. I'm not sure I can ever forget looking into his eyes and knowing that he couldn't see me any more. The vet told me that if I had waited a bit longer that his passing would have been very difficult. I know that I'm missing some facts here. Quite possibly I am not making much sense. My thoughts are all over the place and none of those place are good. He was my little bear for 17 years. I spent my time, resources and my heart, gladly, to make him healthy and happy. Now I can't do that any more. How can your heart can feel both empty and heavy at the same time.

Update Winston March 4

Hello, A quick update about my little guy. It is not good news. He is severely anemic. It is causing his weight loss, loss of apetite and the weak muscle spells. I am leaving a lot of information out because I am in shock. That, along with his age and his kidney disease, is not good. I'm waiting to hear back the vet to see if there is anything that can be done and what steps to take next. Thanks for your kindness everyone.

Purrs, Good Thoughts and Prayers Please

Hello, A quick post for today. I brought Winston in to the vet just now. They will run blood tests and take xrays. Last night, for lack of a better word, the little guy had some sort of "episode". I contacted the vet and when they got back to me they asked that I bring him in. Winston will more than likely spend the night there. Hopefully, they will find something that can be managed or remedied. My heart feels very empty. I hate leaving them at the vet's office. Thanks for your time. ♥
