Where do I begin?Everything seems to have gone haywire!I guess I will start with my beloved mother in law.She had a relapse from a previous stroke.We rushed to her side and were thrilled to see her sitting up giving the nurses grief(they love her)Our grandsons son was born(that makes us 4 greats)our AC did a nosedive,the car broke down,Our new roof sprung a leak,Our pregnant daughter fell from a rotten porch at her home..scary!She is ok!!We got the car back and on the way home it stalled at a red light and had to be towed back to the garage.The 100 degree temps have not been kind.To make all matters worse my darling loved old dog Mocha had a cancerous tumor removed,she got better,fell ill again and after a week of suffering,We decided to have her humanely euthanized/put to sleep.I was really hurting because she has always been my heart.I was sitting beside her,she crawled into my lap,licked my face,layed down and died.At first I thought wow she is content.I rubbed her side then realized she had quit breathing.That has been a week ago and my heart is broken.I had prayed for God to take her and he answered my prayer.My husband bought her for our kids but she picked me.We had her 16 1/2 years!!A lot of well meaning friends have said I'm acting like I'm mourning a person.Get over it!! they say.I Loved that dog,she was my shadow,always waiting when I returned home,always my shoulder!!A lot of you can relate.I just don't know how to heal from her loss.I've prayed,volunteered at the no kill shelter which is really hard seeing all the waggy tails.My husband bless him has suggested we get another dog right away to take my mind off of our loss.I'm sorry dogs are like people there are not two alike.Hopefully I can get back on track at Sparkpeople and lose a bunch of weight!!I could use your prayers Sparkies!!
