About a week after my last post, we made the very difficult decision to put Mia to sleep. The cancer was eating away at her and as it was on her tongue, she could groom or eat or even really drink water easily any longer.
Even though it was a hard decision to make, I did feel relief once she had been put to sleep, it was the right thing to do – she doesn’t have to suffer any longer.
That doesn’t mean it has been easy – we miss her so much, every day. It’s the little things that make you the saddest, like not having her waiting for you when you arrive home from work – or waiting for her to jump on the bed during the night, forgetting that she’s no longer here.
I am slowly recovering though, and feeling more like I can get out and do things more and make things without feeling sad all the time. But she will always have part of my heart – my sweet, sassy, little Queen.
