With great sadness I write that Molly went to the Rainbow Bridge today. She had a rough night, and this morning she wouldn't eat; at that point I knew something was REALLY wrong, because Molly loved to eat. I took her to VHUP, where her labs revealed she had developed diabetes as a result of the Cushings and that she was in Diabetic Ketoacidosis and also had pancreatitis. She was in pain and I did what I needed to do to keep her comfortable. She died in my arms. Maggie and Gus are doing fine; the are certainly looking for Molly and spending lots of time licking my tears.
Today, I learned AGAIN that I have the most wonderful, caring, loving group of friends in the world. Thanks to Elizabeth for being with me. Thanks to Trish, for taking Molly to VHUP with me this morning. Thanks to Heather and Meg for the long walk with Gus and Mags tonight. Thanks to Ellen for sitting in the ED waiting room with me. Thanks to Lori, Robin and Wendy for the phone calls and the offers to come hang out with me. Thanks to Jane for calling our vet, Justin, at home. Thanks to Justin, for calling me when you were at home sick.
Special thanks to Dr Daly at VHUP who took wonderful care of Molly and me.
I know Molly is with Maxie, eating all the greenies she wants, patiently waiting for me at the Rainbow Bridge. I will love you always Molly.
