UPDATE: 11:36 am Central - I'm still a little stunned at the turn of events here, but Princess had to be helped to the Bridge at about 10:30 this morning. We took her in because of a loose tooth and swelling. It turned out (after x ray) that our sweet tortico girl lost her tooth due to jawbone loss. Cancer had totally eradicated the left side of her jawbone. I was shocked to see the xray. Bless her heart, she never complained about pain and ate her breakfast this morning (albeit not much). She was down to 6 pounds and some ounces. That was down 1/2 pound from last year. I held her in my arms til the end. She complained noisily by growling and the last thing she left us with was some awful flatulence. I always knew she would do that until the end.
Thanks for the kind words and Mommy is gonna go lose herself in some chocolate and tears. Our sweet girl would have been 19 this spring.
Pee Ess - our internet was down last night shortly after we posted. So we didn't get to visit. XOXO
