First I want to thank all of you for your concern for my dog Lilly. Thank you for your encouraging words and all your prayers, it means so much. Unfortunately I had her put to sleep today. I took her to the vet today expecting for her tumors to be removed and have her back home at least by tomorrow.
The vet called me this am and said they were unable to insert the trach tube due to tumors being present in her throat. He said he was surprised that she could even eat.
He had her sedated and advised me to go ahead and have her put to sleep. He said she may live a few weeks, but would eventually not be able to eat and would have difficulty breathing, and this would really cause her to become apprenhensive and panicky.
I have cried all day, wondering if I made the right decision. And I left her alone and didn't even get to tell her goodbye. I feel like I was to protect her, not to make the decision to end her life.
It will be hard, because I really loved that dog and she was my buddy, always waiting for me when I walked in the door.
But I have to tell myself that she had a good life and was full of life, she was so gentle and a gift from God.
I did pray that she wouldn't have to suffer when she died, and they reassured me that she didn't. But it's still hard.
