Meet Our own deaf
1/3/2011-We got sad news today
Unfortunately, this email is written with great sadness and TREMENDOUS heartbreak...we had to say good-bye to our sweet Ginger baby yesterday. We found out on Thursday that she had very advanced cancer in her adrenal glands in addition to a large tumor that was wrapped around her vena cava cutting off blood supply to her hind legs. This apparently also had metastasized to the liver. She had been having difficulties with vomitting and diarrhea kind of off and on for the last month--she would have it for a day and then be better for a week and then it would show up again...every time we thought we had solved the problem until finally we knew something was not right (especially since in the last week she began having a harder time walking). We took her to the emergency vet hospital Wed night and they suggested we see the internist at the other hospital in Springfield on Thurs. So, we took her in and the vet was expecting to see test results lead to Addison's disease or Inflammatory bowel...but the ultrasound shocked us all. Over the rest of Thurs and Fri she began telling us she was too tired to keep going and we quickly began noticing her having an even harder time walking and getting up on our bed (which you know was really HER bed)...So, Saturday we made the difficult decision to let her go and be free of the pain she would continue to endure at greater and greater degrees.
Marc, she was our best friend and the best part of our lives....and we THANK YOU with all our hearts for giving us such a precious gift! We know this will be just as hard on you as it is on us...we have cried and cried since we got the news and the crying has only gotten worse since having to say good-bye. A lot of sleepless nights are ahead as I wake up frequently realizing my best bed partner is no longer beside me and I have lost my most precious and sweetest shadow. She truly was a one of a kind dog/person who stole our hearts the minute we left your driveway!!! So, please know that we will be thinking of you as well....but always remember she was treated like the queen she truly was and will ALWAYS be Loved...and GREATLY missed!!!
My husband and I put a little tribute to her on our blog page if you would like to read it....the web address is www.6metersrus.blogspot.com
May Ginger rest in peace knowing that she made our lives better just by being a part of them!!!!
Thank you again for giving us the greatest gift we could have ever received...her unconditional Love and the continuous joy and laughter that came with it!
Erica and Rhonda
It's been a long road, more than 2 years,
but we finally made it girl!
