My beautiful, sweet Meka is gone...

Wednesday, November 21, 2012

My beautiful, sweet assistance dog, Meka, is gone.

I have not even begun to know how much I will miss him.

Today, we consulted with the doctor at the Veterinary Emergency and Referral Group. We were seeking clarification with regard to whether Meka's condition was one that was amenable to treatment.

We did get that clarification. He became worse during the visit and it became obvious to us that he was not going to get better. In fact, his health was rapidly deteriorating.
He was having focal seizures, and during the exam, began exhibiting difficulty with his right front leg that was completely new.

We decided that, in light of these developments, we didn't need to go further with diagnostic procedures. Early this evening, we went back to Hope Vet, where we gave him freedom from his pain and from further deterioration.

We stayed with him until he was gone.

Of all the hundreds of photos we have of him, I think my favorite is the one below. It was taken when he was with us in North Carolina. He loved running on the beach.

It is how I will picture him, occupying himself until it's time to come meet me at the Rainbow Bridge.

    The picture shows how happy and carefree Meka was at his most playful and simple delight.

    Pictures bring happy memories of your time together. I know how precious Meka's companionship was. I am sorry for your loss. Di. emoticon emoticon

    I tear up over this blog as I've been through this with a cat I loved. I know what this will mean to you and am sorry for your loss.
    I am happy, however, you didn't allow the
    suffering to continue.
