I will spare you the details of this latest blow here, only to say in a manner of just a few hours today she became very sick. It was clear something very bad was happening and happening very fast. We took her to a nearby emergency vet where it was very quickly determined that her kidneys were as close to failing as they could be. Not just her kidneys, but other organs as well. Nothing could be done for her. We made the decision to do what was best for her and to end her obvious suffering. That was accomplished just before 6:30 this evening.
This is devastating for both Scott and I, but worse for him. Years ago, when Sandi was first diagnosed, she and Scott picked this cat out. She was a rescue from the City of Plano Animal Shelter. She was very skittish around people, but her and Scott connected within seconds astounding the shelter staff. Sandi later said to both of us that she wanted Scott to have something to love and a buddy after she was gone so he would not feel so alone.
Krystal was supposed to be here long after Sandi passed and to help him with the grieving process. She did and to a certain extent she helped me too. Sandi loved that cat tremendously and was able to hold her just before she passed.
Now this has happened. Another thing that wasn't supposed to happen anytime soon.
Thank you for your prayers, thoughts, and support for the past six years plus as Sandi did everything she could to be here with all of us. She is now free and not hurting anymore. I am still trying to pay off her past treatments at Medical City Dallas Hospital as well as at Texas Oncology. While the hospital can't handle direct donations, if you can help and would prefer to donate directly, please contact Debra, the financial counselor at TEXAS ONCOLOGY in SUITE 220 of Building D at Medical City Dallas Hospital in Dallas, Texas. We thank you for your prayers, thoughts, and support for the past six years plus as Sandi did everything she could to be here with all of us.
