Allies and Reinforcements; FYI from Harper B

"Tears are the silent language of grief"


Grief -- What Else? And Pictures.

You cannot prevent the birds of sorrow from flying over your head, but you can prevent them from building nests in your hair. (Chinese Proverb). How to do that -- prevent the nesting? I suspect we just have to keep marching...

The One-Two Punch

My dad is/was a boxer (the human kind -- you know, involving gloves), and perhaps that is why I think the best way to describe how I feel is this:

Reflections on Reflection; Our Babies

“Give sorrow words. The grief that does not speak whispers the o'er-fraught heart, and bids it break.”

(William Shakespeare)

Missing: Cadi-Bug; Later -- Updates

I am completely and totally leveled and devastated by the death of Cadi -- it is a different grief experience to lose a relatively young dog and to do so abruptly. I am traumatized by it all, replaying the events of the day over and over, and trying to learn and make sense of it all -- but it is senseless. Mostly I just cry...

She's Gone

We never made it to the van and I have not slept. Blood from the tumor was filling the lining of her heart. We drained it, trying to keep her going until the Specialist could see her this morning and hopefully operate. But it refilled too quickly, leaving her in a panic and requiring that it be drained again and again.

Evening Update

Cadi, Harper and I are having a campout tonight in the van in the parking lot of the Pet ER - Galen is home with the other dogs since Dear Husband is out of town.

Dear Universe: WTF?!

Cadi was suddenly not okay - called World's Most Awesome MT vet, Mikelle - she met us at the clinic. Something is wrong with Cadi - maybe her heart.

More Indecision, Zeke!

So I think I am all decided and Terri Z. says Asia absolutely must go -- WAH!!!!!!!
