Just a quick note because my heart is breaking, and I want to go sit with Mike. Joanne is coming over around 1:00 to send him to the Rainbow Bridge. Oh my God... I don't know how I'm going to handle this... He's been my entire life for over 12 years (almost 13).
She said the diabetes by itself could be controlled, but his body is eating itself (Ketodosis?) and he does have the beginning of Cushings. He's so weak, but somehow he did manage to make it to sleep next to my bed last night. I wanted to sleep next to him, but there was no room to even squeeze next to him and the furniture he was comfortable sleeping next to.
Please pray for my boy. I know he will go easily... he's worn, tired, sick and weak, but thank God, Joanne said he really is not in pain. And and please pray for me that I can deal with this... and poor little Gidget is going to miss him terribly. She's been so good since he's been sick and hasn't even bothered him. She tried to give him some whisker kisses this morning, but he didn't feel good enough to accept them. Before he leaves us, I'm going to pick her up and let her give him all the kisses she wants to (whether he wants them or not)... she loves him so much.
I can't type anymore. Going to sit with him. She'll be here around 1:00 (maybe a bit sooner). Michelle will be with me when it happens.
Please pray for us.
Love You All
