My sweet Nando passed away yesterday. I had to make the decision to help him. He was suffering and the decision was clear for me. Nando’s Doctor was very kind, she made a house call yesterday to check on him, she said that he was hanging on for me and I needed to give him this last gift and free him from his pain. My heart is broken I know I did the right thing but it is never easy. For the past 3+ weeks he deteriorated tremendously and caring for him was all consuming. I could not leave him alone but thankfully when I needed to go out I had friends that helped me take care of him. It will take time to come to grips with the fact that Nando and Izzy are no longer with me. Thank you all for your kindness and support. Izzy and Nando and their best friend Daisey are all together now free from pain.
