Commemoration Tyra

7 posts in this topic

I lost Tyra on Sunday night.  She started to have seizures on Saturday afternoon and by Sunday night she had had 4.  We took her in to the vet and her heart was failing and she was not getting enough oxygen. This caused her to seize.  Her gums and tongue were almost blue, but the little one was alert right to the end.  I have cried non stop for 3 days and tomorrow we get her ashes back.   Right now, I am missing blocks of time, so my doctor thinks I may have had a mini stroke because of the grief.  I miss my little girl so much, and Missie and Quincy are so lost and quiet.  My house feels like a tomb, it is so still.

My prose isn't eloquent enough to truly express my toughts so instead, I want to share this little poem from Julia Napier.

 

If it should be that I grow frail and weak
And pain should keep me from my sleep
Then will you do what must be done
For this"”the last battle"”can't be won.

You will be sad, I understand
But don't let grief then stay your hand
For on this day, more than all the rest
Your love and friendship must stand the test.

We've had so many happy years
What is to come can hold no fears
You'd not want me to suffer, so
When the time comes, please let me go.

Take me to where my needs they'll tend
Only, stay with me until the end.
And hold me firm and speak to me
Until my eyes no longer see.

I know in time that you will see
It is a kindness you do to me
Although my tail, its last has waved
From pain and suffering I've been saved.

Don't grieve that it must now be you
Who has to decide this thing to do
We've been so close"”we two"”these years
Don't let your heart hold any tears.

My heartfelt condolences to you and your hubby, Shay.   2_huggers 

 

As dbg said, a few of us have recently been in the same position so we know the difficult pain you are going through. It's so hard to make that final decision but it was the last act of love you gave to Tyra and I hope your sorrow is soon replaced by all the wonderful memories you have of her.   2_huggers

As for possible strokes, have you gone to the hospital and have tests done?  k_shok

I have been tested and had a few MRI's.  The last mini stroke that really screwed me up was 12 years ago. It knocked out my speech for 8 months and my short term memory for about 3 years.  I am not worried about the future, I know some day this will kill me and I accept that.  I live each day to the max, and I hope I go out laughing. (or having hot monkey sex)

 When I am really stressed, my speech slurs and I lose blocks of time.  Just a part of that stroke thingy...
