Heart Broken

October 16th, 2022 at 05:41 pm

I did buy that car yesterday. And then the day took a horrible turn.

We went to my niece's and while there, my sweet Bella began struggling to breathe and foaming at the mouth. I took her to the closest emergency vet where they immediately put her under anesthesia, intubated her, and took xrays. The vet said she had advanced pneumonia and it was too late to treat her. I feel horrible because I hadn't even known anything was wrong. We stopped at her favorite park that morning and she ran about happily. She devoured her breakfast. She seemed perfectly fine and healthy. And now she is gone. She was only 5.5 years old.

I can't stop crying.

Now I have to go home to a place that will feel horribly empty and unbearably sad.

    Oh, honey. I'm sorry. I think when it is sudden and you aren't expecting it, it hurts more. Or maybe it just always hurts. Pets leave a hole in your heart when they go. Take your time and grieve. After a while you'll be able to smile at memories of Bella, but right now it's okay to cry yourself out as much as you need to.

    So so very sorry for your loss Petunia… it’s hard enough to say goodbye when your fur babies are older but when they are younger and seem healthy is even harder.. I’m sure your baby Bella had the best life and if she had her way she would have lived out her days with you. Please take as much time as you need to grieve, you have had so many ups and downs before she even got sick {{big hugs to you}}

    I am so, so sorry. This is very hard to take when she is so young. Well, it's hard any time. Take care of yourself, Petunia. And take comfort in your memories. Our hearts are with you.

    Thank you everyone for the kind words; they really help. I am OK, it just hurts so much.

    I am so sorry for your tragic loss. Out of the blue like that is so much harder to handle; perhaps there is some comfort in that she did not seem in discomfort until the very end. May her memory be a blessing.
