Leo Update

Leo has been on a chemotherapy level steroid treatment for the last few days. He is more alert and appears to have more energy, but I can feel all his bones under his skin and his diarrhea has gotten worse. It is pure liquid now. He is insisting on sleeping under the covers now, something he never does, and Pele is hovering over him very protectively. She doesn't even fight him for the coveted boob snuggling position. He is having trouble keeping himself clean and is very unsteady on his feet. I talked with the vet this morning and she said that if the medicine was going to help hm, it would have done so by now and that I have done all that I can do.

So, he has lost his fight. She wanted to know if I was ready to bring him in today, and I have to say no. I think I will bring him in at the end of the day Thursday, so I can take Friday off to cry.

I am so very sorry. *big hugs* Logan also says he is sorry, he might not be a cat type of dog, but still when a person is not doing well, he is right there. We both send our condolences.

Heather,

Betsey, Ross, and I wish you strength tomorrow. We know it will be a difficult day for you and Pele and Leo, but Leo knows how much he has been loved by you and Pele and you've given him a great life.

Saying goodby is so difficult. I am so sorry about Leo. Memories of him will comfort you and will keep his spirit alive.
