Yesterday at 0800hrs in the morning I got the call. Something was wrong and he couldn't stand up. Rushing my way out to him with this sudden reality of being totally disconnected from everything in order to stay focused. He had been given painkillers and tranquilizer. I sit by his side and manage to get him to walk. It's starting to feel better.
But then right before 1300hrs he doesn't want to stand up as we are out walking. We manage to get inside and he just lays down.
As I'm calling the vet, I'm told "I think he is about to die". In that moment it's like you can feel and hear your heart breaking. He is fading and you can't do a thing. After 30 minutes he is able to lay on his belly and chest instead of the side, that's better at least. 30 some minutes more and he stands up..
Yesterday was filled with tears, hopelessness, desperation and fear. As a part of you is fading away you are no longer a part of whatever is going on in those other parts of your life, you simply don't care.. All you want is for your friend and family member to feel better.
He is stable now and we hope nothing happens the upcoming days.
