Hollybells, how did your piggy do today. I hope it was good news.

Thank you for asking. I didn't want to take over your thread. While things *might* be ok and clear up with antibiotics, they may not, and we're not in a position, after just over $200 today (even declining a few things), to spend $600 - $800 more if that's the case.

And in the midst of this (sensitive - death mentioned) ...



So wrestling an indignant piggy who is NOT a fan of her antibiotics - she has a spectacular shriek we've never heard before that she launches into when the meds get near her nose - three times a day for the next ten days seems a bit daunting but we've muscled through 2 doses today.

That is so much to deal with Holly! Will pray for all of you as you deal with the stress of the death of a loved one, death of a child too soon and for you headaches. And of course for your indignant little piggy.

You made the right decision. Diabetes/high blood sugar is a very painful way to die.

Each time a pet of mine dies it is so hard and so sad. It is a part of life though. I think it's good for children to experience it, helps prepare them a little for the grieving process when a human loved one dies.
