today was not the day to say good-bye

But it will be, soon.

Jerry Lee went to a new vet today. She was wonderful, but had sad news.

Jerry Lee has liver cancer.

The vet gave him tons of shots and sent us home with lots of medications. She said he'll be comfortable and not in pain while on the meds and that we will know when to bring him in.

I cried off and on during the day, but when we went outside to go potty awhile ago, I lost it. I sobbed uncontrollably. Jerry came and sat by my feet. We sat for about a half hour until I was calm again.

This may not be eloquently worded, but...this just sucks.

I love this dog so much.

Oh Frankie,

I'm so sorry.

I'm bouncing off you again, when you have a chance, please send me your physical address.

Frankie, I know there aren't words I can say to help. I'm sorry.

And it does suck. Really sucks.

Oh, dear.

There is not much to say but sorry.
Our dogs are such a part of our families! May you and Jerry Lee have peace in these coming days...
