Healing thoughts/prayers going out to Happy Turtle and Labradite (as well as for your mom Lab!!) May you heal quickly and fully and be back to feeling yourselves soon.
This has been a bit of a rough one for me. Tomorrow we are going to have our dear senior cat, D.C. put to rest. His quality of life is not good, and not going to improve since he is approx. 20 years and has reached the end of his healthy years. He is too thin and weak to stand/walk much at all any longer, so it is time to say goodbye. We are having a vet come to our house to administer his shot, but I fear I am going to panic, as end of life events are a trigger for me. I know everyone says it is a natural part of life...but I just can't feel that way. I hate that loved ones have to die, and I really struggle with health/death anxiety.
On top of this, my daughter's school had a shooter threat on campus today. I went to take her out of classes and all is safe (turned out to be a sick hoax) but that is just too familiar with all that has recently escalated. It really makes for parental anxiety for something that should just be a routine part of life...ya know, your kid going to school to learn...w/o fear of them being shot.
Thanks for listening and any positive thoughts/prayers are appreciated.
