I think the question you are wanting to ask me of the reason Storm was put down is “Why? Your other post mentioned she had some issues but that was part of the healing process.” I have more than one reason but it was mainly because it seemed the same thing was happening to her other paws.
To say it was a difficult decision to make is such an understatement. I have talked to my mom about this subject several times knowing what I should probably do, making the choice, but then not actually going through with it.
I kept hoping (and wishing) that she would finally get a break. I kept thinking that this would be the last problem–at least for some time. But that wasn’t the case.
Storm and I (mostly Storm) had been through hell from April to the beginning of this month. I honestly don’t know how I got through it all. The help of my mom and my sister kept me sane on the really scary parts. But overall it has taken a toll on me mentally. I am dumbfounded how it hasn’t started a shit storm with my Lupus and affected me physically. I think even though these last few months have sucked, it has brought me closer to my mom and sister. These last few months I have seen just how much they love me. I am so blessed to have them in my life.
Although painful at times, love is a wonderful thing.
