Re: The Recovery Process
I am raising a glass to your Eich tonight as I toast my own sweet Lucy, taken by hemangio this Christmas. It is a vile disease, an invisible demon and you are right, we are tormented by the fears of how the end will come. It steals our peace of mind as well as our beauitful babies.
Writing about your beautiful boy can be therapeutic. It honors him and keeps him close in your heart and mind. He's a radient beauty.
There is no timeframe on grief, only small steps we can take when we are ready, and it's okay to take steps back too. There are triggers everyplace and emotional landmines around every corner.
Among it all, are the smiles of memories of our loved ones, of a love we would have traded nothing for. The love lives on, it warms us when they are gone.
What hemangio does NOT take is the love, and the spirit of your beautiful dog. He lived well even when sick and was loved as he passed.
I don't want to preach spiritual beliefs, but I believe that our dogs are such pure, loving souls that they MUST move on to a place where we shall meet them again.
My heart and thoughts go out to you.
