The Weeks To Come….

Nando

Nando

Hi Everyone;

I will not be posting regularly nor can I comment on all your wonderful blogs with any regularity during the weeks to come.  I am afraid that it’s physically impossible for me to do this right now.  Work is extremely busy, Nando is at the end of his life and requires a lot of time and attention. I have told you before my boy has Diabetes, he is 14 1/2 years old, blind and has neuropathy which a complication of the diabetes. He can barely stand anymore. It’s heart breaking and difficult for me to watch him deteriorate almost daily. He is still eating but that is becoming increasingly difficult for him. I cannot leave him alone for more than 2 hours at a time, I have to rush home between appointments. I do have a dog walker who is great and he will come in and check on Nando and take him out if I have to be gone more than 2 hours.

Pardon me for this, it’s a very difficult time for me right now losing Izzy just a few months ago and now Nando is failing, it’s hard for me to deal with and I just wanted everyone to know I am still around but you won’t see me posting or commenting with any regularity.

  22. I’m so sorry Suzanne, losing a pet and/or watching one decline is so hard… They aren’t just our pets, they become our family and are like our children. Try to enjoy every single minute that you have left with sweet Nando. You sound like a very caring pet parent… No doubt Nando knows how much he is loved.

    April 24, 2015
  23. This is no time to be worried about any of us Suzanne. Your priorities are in the right place. Please remember for support you have friends galore should you need them. We’ll be thinking of you anyway.

  55. Ugh. So sorry. It’s really the worst thing to go through. Don’t let it go too long – not giving advice, but we let our first one go too long, and then recently, with our last dog who we had to put to sleep, we found out after the fact that she was most likely in pain, and we had no idea because there were no symptoms of pain.

    April 25, 2015
  56. So sorry Suzanne. Dogs first, always. xo

    I really know that pain. It’s so hard to let go when its their time to cross rhe Rainbow Bridge. Soft & gentle hugs & kisses for Nando.

    April 26, 2015

    April 26, 2015
  59. Dear Suzanne,

    I am sorry to hear that Nando is so unwell that’s so hard for you. Take care. Bx

    April 26, 2015
  60. You don’t have to apology Suzanne… you are one of the few who is always so kind to come and say something sweet about my posts. Take your time, and enjoy your cute Nando as much as you can. Hugs for you and for Nando, take care.

    April 26, 2015
  61. My thoughts are with you Suzanne.

    April 27, 2015
  62. You are all so kind, thank you so much. I have Nando on a supplement that may or may not help him with the neuropathy. I have to try because the path is not clear cut at least for me to euthanize. Thank you all I count myself one of the luckiest people to have such a great support from my friends.

    April 27, 2015
  63. Sending you lots of love. I lost a cocker spaniel a few years ago to spinal cancer and she was only 4 years old. I understand the pain you are in and what it is like to loose your best friend. Don’t worry about the blog. It will be here when you are ready. Take care of yourself. Emma xx

  64. Blessings on Nando, and inner strength for you. It’s so hard to help our sweet companions move on. Love is the only way. For what it’s worth.. coconut oil, cinnamon and turmeric have done wonders for some Diabetics.. not sure you even want to try anything else at this point. Love to you.

    April 27, 2015
    • I use cinnamon but didn’t know about coconut oil and turmeric will try thank you

      April 27, 2015
  65. I am so sorry! I have experienced the pain and heartache of losing a beloved pet. I still miss my sweet dog who left almost 10 years ago. I’m thinking of you!!

    April 28, 2015
  66. Suzanne- I’m joining in with so many people who are wishing you well in these difficult days. Praying for you that you’ll find strength and grace you didn’t know you had and that Nando will find comfort in your tender, constant care. Hugs from here. xox

    April 29, 2015
  67. Suzanne, I’m sending warm wishes and am thinking of you. Nando is luck to have you. Be kind to yourself and take all the time you need.
