Sleep Peacefully, Steve

I can’t believe I’m writing this post, but we said goodbye to Steve today. It was very unexpected. She wasn’t acting right this morning, so I brought her to the vet this afternoon. Long story short, her liver and what’s left of her colon are failing. They could do a couple of surgeries, but we would be putting her through a lot of pain and trouble for what amounts to a band-aid. We’d be right back in the same spot in a few weeks or months. I couldn’t do that to my Steve. She’s been my nurse, my rock, my best friend through so much. It would be selfish of me to make her suffer so I could get a few more days with her.

Nothing will fill the hole she has left. I love her so much.
