  • I am sorry to hear about your difficult decision.
    All I can say is allow yourself time to cry; whether it's for a couple hours, days or weeks. It is a legitimate loss and important for your kids to learn that grieving is natural and necessary.
    Be glad that you can give your loved one what (s)he needs. You are making the best choice under the saddest of circumstances.
    Take care.

  • OMG! I feel so sorry for you. Please accept my condolences. I wish I had something profound to say that would make it better, but all I can do is offer my heartfelt sympathy. Message me when you need to talk about it.

  • I'm sorry. It's hard when you have to put a pet down. I was inconsolable when I put my cat down. I got him when I was 10 and he was put down when he was 14 after suffering with renal disease. It does get better after a while. I still miss him a lot though.
