She had a cancerous tumor on the right side of her head. We first noticed it last spring and thought it was an infected bird peck. But it never would heal. In September, the vet diagnosed cancer. She could operate, but it would only grow back, so we decided to take her home and enjoy her as long as we could.
This last week she has done nothing but sleep and drink a little milk when I brought it to her. We knew it was time, and took her to the vet for the last time this morning.
We will miss her so much.

Life is full of ups and downs. My mother had two serious problems within 3 months of each other: a bad fall and pneumonia, and has recovered from both at age of 96 (her 97th birthday is in two weeks); a fire that destroyed most of our lawn and gardening equipment and the shed they were in; a new granddaughter one week old today; son's engagement; and a sick cat who is sleeping her last hours away beside me.
I am happy and excited and ecstatic about the good news, and deeply sad over the bad news. They don't cancel out each other, but it's hard swinging back and forth.
(edit) I just read this on the blog of one of my cyber friends, Wisteria and Roses:
Though great losses have rocked our world through the recent years, a house built upon The Rock withstands the storms; and the family within the standing home rises up to celebrate in the midst of the torrents.
So true, thank you for the timely reminder, Debbie!
