This is my precious Jennifer. She has been my constant companion for the past decade. I have been through tremendous trials and tribulations over the past few years and she has been my best friend, and greatest confidant.
Jenny hasn't been feeling well the past few weeks. I took her to the vet and he just couldn't figure it out what was wrong so we had an ultrasound done. The news was bad, very bad.
My darling Jenny has cancer. It is inoperable. My vet, who is wonderful, called the specialists and they want to do all kinds of tests, biopsies, etc. It's really not about the money (between 6 and 7 thousand dollars), but it's going to really have the same outcome anyway. She is somewhere between 13 and 16 years old. We don't know because she was a rescue. I can't put her through this, it will be torture.
We have decided to keep her comfortable and pain free. She is on meds that I give her every day which will temporarily shrink the tumor. Eventually, it will stop working.
The vet thinks she has a few months. I plan on making them great months. She had a horrible start to life but when I adopted her I gave her a wonderful life, filled with love and compassion.
I will miss her more than I can ever say. My heart is broken into little tiny pieces.
