Roxy as crossed the over the rainbow.

Hey all. First I would like to thank you all for your continued support, love, and prayers for Roxy, my mother, and myself. We greatly appreciate everything you all have done. Some of you went above and beyond. And for that, I am eternally greatful.

But sadly, Roxy passed away today at exactly 12pm.

She was shacking and in a lot of pain last night. Even with pain meds (strong ones) she was not comfortable. I tried feeding her, we thought it was her blood levels dropping, we tried meds, etc. Vet saw how white she was. Once they got the pain meds in her, roxy turned from shacking and unable to relax, to relaxed, but shacking and eyes rolling in the back of her head. She began throwing up all of the food I gave her. Unable to drink. Because of this, I knew it was time to have her put down.

Upon my request, I held her in my arms, thanked her for being there for me when no one else was, or when no one else wanted to be. Thanked her for being such a princess, and that I was blessed that she was going to soon be my angel. I told her it was okay to let go, and to go to heaven to the good Lord above. It was as if she understood. Shortly after her heart rate started to drop. Mom arrived from work, we signed all paperwork needed, the vet techs came in and said their good byes as well (she seemed to have an impact on everyone), and we all were in the room while I held her and let her go.

I felt her soul leave her. It was heartbreaking but relieving at the same time to know that my baby, my daughter, my everything, was in a place where she would no longer suffer, or have to en dour such horrific surgeries.


You will forever be missed. Mommy loves you with all of her heart and soul. Thank you for being in my life for almost three years. You died so young, but gave so much. You were stronger then I think I could ever be, and endoured such horrifc pain. More so then anyone could. And I thank you for trying your best.

My close friend Kristen came over tonight. It felt good to see her. She brought over a really good glass of wine. Even though I had a glass before moving on to hard core vodka. lol

I am numb. Going to bed without here is weird. Looking around and not seeing her is weird. Wanting to call ROXY!!!! and she not come is weird. To know that my daughter is gone... is weird. She should be here in my arms right now. I feel at peace knowing she is at peace. But I feel heartbroken, lost, confused, annoyed, pissed, wanting, etc.

Nothing I can do will bring her back. Nothing will ever fill this void. Time will only make you numb, but never heal. She was my one and only. And for that I am thankful for. I was spoiled by her love, attention, and devotion. It just pains me to see her the way she was before letting her go to the good Lord above.

Time to try and get some sleep. I feel sick to my stomach to try and eat, or sleep, when I know she had such a hard time doing so. Feel selfish almost. I donno. Hard to explain.

Thanks all.
