    Today has been very rough... My poor dog.

    He comes home from the surgery whimpering, and then just collapses on the floor. He remains pretty much unresponsive for 4 hours, at which point we call up the doctor, and have her make an emergency trip... put him on a board and carry him to the car because he can't stand without wailing. Carry him out of the car, and then... suddenly he's freaking out and walking...

    The vet suggested it was the adrenaline of being back at the vet, especially if he doesn't like the place (and he doesn't). When we brought him back home, he whimpered and collapsed onto his bed pillow.

    I'm monitoring him, but I don't want to wake him up. He's really confused, depressed, and scared right now. I had to put a t-shirt on him to keep his brother from messing with the stitches from where they removed the tumor.

    I wish I could do something nice for him....

    i think just being with him and petting him gently would help. my mom's a dog massage therapist but since she lives here in chicago, i can't offer her services.

    What @eversonpoe said. And, of course, talk to him. Hearing your voice will reassure him. Also: pets usually hate the smell of the vet office so being home on his own bed pillow, with his brother and you, surrounded by familiar sounds and smells will help him.

    The best of luck to all of you!

    Retina detached again. Eye too full of blood for doctor to determine how bad. FML.

    I really need to do this. My drive on my old Mac died last year with all these all photos. I kept the drive and eventually have to find someone to bring it back to life. I wan't those photos.



    And cramps. >:|

    I'm so sorry, @Jinsai . Much love to you and your little one. Hold him close while you can. Mine is 13, and I know I'll have to go through this before long. We're here for you.

    @Jinsai I believe your dog knows you tried everything to help him. And you're still helping him by being there for him right now.

    I am so sorry for the both of you. And yes, FUCK YOU, CANCER.

    Thank you... This has been incredibly hard. I picked him up from the doctor, and he's in shock but cheering up.

    I asked the doctor if there was anything I could do. He gave me this sinister look and said "If he likes cheeseburgers, give him a cheeseburger. If he likes to walk on the beach, take him to the beach. If you think he loves you, love him back. That's really all you can do. Normally, no people food is the rule, but... that won't beat him to the finish line here. Make him happy and make him feel loved."

    I gotta stop crying...

    I'm very sorry, @Jinsai . I treat my dogs like they're family. My buddy Jack is 12, and he's a husky, so I know time is a factor.

    Speaking of which, my grandfather died about three hours ago. I was there though he was all but gone when I saw him. I didn't say anything to him because of that. The last time I spoke to him was Father's Day. It was nice so at least I can reflect on that.

    I was not expecting this. I was expecting to hear my friend passed any minute now. He's at the end of his battle with cancer. So I'll likely be at two funerals this year...probably this month.

    This is the worst fucking timeline.

    We're mutually unhappy on many parallel levels. Let's hang in there.

    @Jinsai , I had to put my doggy down on April 25th. She was diagnosed with cancer last July, she lasted WAY longer than the vets expected. We treated her like she was in "Doggy Hospice" the whole time, spoiled her and made sure she was as comfortable as possible until "the time" would come where we'd have to make the "decision." I lived with constant anxiety, wondering how I would know, if I could handle it, etc. Things turned VERY fast, and I was making the decision suddenly; the finality gutted us, and I felt guilty for weeks, read a bunch (too many) pet-loss and grieving books.

    The biggest advice I can give is: I highly recommend researching at-home euthanasia in your area. It was TOTALLY worth the added expense, if you can afford it. My dog passed away at home, in a dog bed (actually, it was her sister's cat bed but sister kitty didn't mind, kitty actually stayed with me and watched our dog transition) and my dog left the house in that bed. I did research in advance so I wouldn't be doing it at the time, when there is no time and I most likely wouldn't be firing on all cylinders. I used Pet Loss At Home, they were awesome.

    My heart goes out to you, this is the hard part about loving: saying goodbye.

    Two weeks after my dog died, my mom's (best friend) kitty was sick and I had to help put her down.

    My Mom looked at me, her late cat there in front of us, and through tears she said, "honey, this is hard, but life is hard; and this is part of life."

    It's stayed with me. Nearly all our family is gone, as is G's. The kitty who was with me when my dog passed was since diagnosed with cancer.


    @Swykk , my condolences in the loss of your grandpa. So sorry.

    @allegro , thank you, and I'm sorry you had to go through that. Your mom's right though, this is part of life. I feel like I've reached some kind of acceptance. Today I can probably get through without dwelling on it constantly. I was sort of selfishly terrified that I was going to be panicking constantly, waiting for the other shoe to drop... but you'd never know he was sick from how he's acting for the most part.

    The local vet, if your pet is part of their "family," will come to your house to help put him/her down when the time comes. My last dog they didn't charge me, and then sent me a follow-up Hallmark card. It was nice of them, as horrible as the whole thing was. Silver lining here is that this apparently isn't causing him pain, and that when it takes him out, it should be quick and mostly painless. If it gets complicated and he starts suffering, I'll put him down.

    And, with that, my good friend just died after a five year plus battle with cancer. He's no longer suffering.

    In other news, fuck everything.

    I'm sorry...

    Hang in there and try to stay positive... this has been a dark test of a year. We're overdue for some good news, surely.

    This is on a different, less awful, level to some of the stuff that has been discussed on this thread, but it was fucked anyway.

    I live in a shared house (each person has their own room with it's own bathroom and some of kitchens) with about 10 other residents.
    Yesterday i opened one of my drawers and a rat leapt out before running to the bathroom and slipping into one of the many open holes the landlord has failed to cover up.
    I reported it and the landlord (rather then doing anything to get rid of said rodent) offered me one of the other larger rooms in a property a few houses down. When i went to see it (same day) the place (that had just become available as the resident moved out the day before) was a dump and clearly being used by a junkie (the amount of used needles, the smell of weed and just state of the place) and i just wanted to cry. There was a sock on the ceiling...somehow, i didn't want to ask.

    I've now spent the first hour of my work day looking for rat traps and hoping i can find a new place with the limited money i have.

    woke up today to find my dog covered in vomit again, rushed him to the vet... they say it's not good, and offered to put him down now, or to drain the fluid again. We opted for the latter, but now we know that we need to put him to sleep before he gets uncomfortable again. So much for the possibility of him making it for a few more months, it's looking more like we're going to need to do this in a couple days.

    Fuuuuuuuuuuck this... And now I've gotta go handle sound and DJ a wedding. Game faces everyone...

    I accidentally fell in love with someone. Then I did everything I could think of to fall out of it as quickly as possible. Never going there again. I hope he didn't figure out that I had feelings for him. Not sure if he felt the same.

    @Jinsai I'm so so very sorry. Try to enjoy the time you have left with him. Tell him how much you love him. He'll understand. <3

    As for my fucked up day: I moved into my new apartment last week, got cable and Internet connected; insane high speed and upload/download unlimited only to be faced by a BSOD when opening my computer. Something called "bad pool header". Managed to enter it in safe mode which is better than nothing since I don't have money to buy a new one yet. First world problem, I know but I need the sucker to make my address changes and to pay my rent, among other things.
