    I should get the results anytime NOW… it seems to be taking forever. Regardless of the results at this point, I'm afraid that its time to let her go I'm down to giving her chicken broth in a syringe and giving her prednisone & pepcid to keep her calm. She did sleep last night, which was a first… and she does not seem to be in a lot of pain, no whimpering or crying out.

    Between my crying fits and the sinus infection that still seems to be lingering, I think that I bruised a rib… it's extremely sore, no bruising though. I have a doctor's appointment on Friday, so I will be seen by that point.

    I'm staying home today to be with her, and waiting for the vet to call. I'll keep you guys posted...

    THANK you so much for all your support, it means a lot to me and my girl right now

    Thank you… I agree, this isn't fair Roxie has lived a VERY long life for a boxer… at least I don't feel like she was cheated. I just wish that I could of bought her more time...

    I made the decision last night to bring Roxie in this morning to be put to sleep… Yesterday she was refusing the syringes of chicken broth, and she was stumbling all over the house determined to walk. She is favoring one side and it's throwing off her balance… I'm honestly afraid she's going to fall and bust her stitches or worse. Last night I made a bed on the floor in the living room so I could lay right next to her… she would wake up every couple of hours whimpering and trying to get up. I also thought she was going to have a seizure at one point her body started shaking so badly…

    I can't let her suffer any longer… there is no telling how long she has had this tumor, or been in pain. She would never even survive chemo at this point, she's ready to go home. And I've got to find the strength to do this, and I will… been thru it many times before unfortunately. Lily is staying home from school and coming with me so I won't be alone. I don't want her to be afraid of death, it's a part of life...

    Please pray for my family, and for my baby girl… she is ready to go home…

    My prayers and love go with you and Lily today Tracey. Roxie is going to meet her brothers and sisters at the Rainbow Bridge where she can run free. She lived a great life and you gave that to her. God Bless.
