    Default Just lost my baby

    I just wanted to let everyone know, I lost my Abby yesterday to heart disease. I had no idea I was going to have to say good bye. My heart is empty and I've cried so many tears since yesterday. We only had her for a short period of time (1yr) but we loved her soooooo much.

    Abby had a terrible start in life with someone who abused her, it was terrible. We did everything we could to give her a good home. She was the queen, that’s for sure! Even with us taking good care of her she had terrible allergy issues and we also found she ate plastic which had to be surgically removed. We had no idea about both when we adopted her. The allergies caused her lots of health problems. Which, I was finally able to cure a few months ago with the help of this site. I was suggested to home feed her. It worked soo well!!! No more medication, no more weekly doctor visits, finally things are starting to look up for our Abby. I was so happy because she finally could just enjoy life and be at peace. Until three weeks ago, we went on vacation and came home and she wasn’t acting like herself. We first thought she was home sick, but the problem just got worse. She wasn’t breathing correctly, had no energy, wasn’t eating right, just not herself. I took her to the vet who heard some liquid in her lungs. Thinking she might of taken some water in when drinking. We had her on medication for ten days and the hacking went away but not the other side effects. I was told to give it a week see how she does. We started to notice mid last week her abdomen was swollen. I was praying it was something that we could fix. I took her in yesterday and the doctor pulled liquid from her lungs and heard her heart was weak. She said it could be her heart or lungs and suggested I take her to the hospital right away. I rushed her over to see what they could do. Wish now I took my time and let her enjoy her last car ride. That was her favorite thing to do. They reviewed her symptoms and said they felt all signs pointed to heart disease. We could have an x-ray and E.C.G done, but even with that, they thought she would only have six month to live with extensive care/medication. We made the choice that we would just put her down. I couldn’t stand to see her suffer anymore and not to make me happy. I would have done anything to keep her around if I knew she would have been okay. I sooo wanted to take her back home and spend one more night with her. She was soo upset being there and that just broke my heart. When they brought her into the room she ran on my lap wagging her stub to take her home. I knew we couldn’t do that. If I was given the right age Abby was just a little older than 3. My poor baby had a terrible life and I’m sorry I couldn’t do more to help her.

    I wanted to thank everyone for their support in the last year. This site has help us out so much to make Abby’s life as good as we could make it.
    I ask if everyone could say a little pray for my babygirl tonight. Mommy and Daddy loved you Abby with all our heart and soul we will see you again one day. xoxox

    This is such sad and shocking news. I'm so sorry for the loss of your Abby. Even though her time with you was so short, you were able to show Abby what true love is and provide her with such a caring and loving home. My heart goes out to you.

    I am so heartbroken for you. There is nothing anyone can say to take away your pain. But know that Abby knew that you loved her so very much. All we can ask for in life is to love and be loved!

    Having gone through the same thing with my sweet Trixie just six months ago, my heart is breaking for you. Trixie had the same symptoms. Abby was so lucky that you gave her a good home and the love she had never known. I am crying tears of sadness for you, but happy tears that sweet Abby had such a good life with you. <hugs>
