Our loving pet dog Chevy died 3 days after I got home from the hospital. A renal tumor previously not seen suddenly sent her into renal failure. The vet spent the night with her at bedside but her gallant efforts did not succeed. We spent an hour with her before she passed

Her passing came suddenly. We are moving through the grief. It's not really possible to deal with it....but were keeping on. I think that I wept so much that my right eye became inflamed so it's to the eye doctor on Monday. There is a storm in my life. I am grasping the challenge. I did go back to work and things went well. It was actually good to have the distraction.

Thank you all so much for your kind words.

I'm so sorry about your dog. I know how hard it is to lose a pet.
Hang in there.

Oh I'm so sorry about Chevy. An unexpected death is the worst. Hang in there, and take care of yourself.

I'm sorry to hear about Chevy.
It's profoundly relieving to read that you are safe and recovering.
Rest well.

How is your eye WhiteCell? My iritis gets triggered with stress so I thought it might be what is happening to you given how stressful the last while has been for you.
Take care.

Point of fact I had a new flare and had to see the Ophthamologist. She added an antibiotic and increased my other drops. It was very stressful.

Thank you for your question.
