A Very Bad Day

I’ve spent more time on the phone today that I care to think about talking to the specialist and the local vet.  They have test results but nothing is jumping up and shouting "THIS IS THE PROBLEM".  We can do more tests and we can try different treatments but the bottom line is that they have no idea what it wrong with Luci.  They have no idea if there are serious irreversable complications from whatever it is that they can’t diagnose.  They can’t explain why a 4 year old dog that was perfectly fine two weeks ago is suddenly not eating, not drinking, and not getting any better no matter what they try.
 
She’s my baby and she’s in pain.  I don’t like that.  They don’t have any answers.  I don’t like that either.  They want to use her as a guinea pig while they test different theories and treatment options.  Well, that just ain’t happening. 
 
I can’t ask her to continue to fight if there is no hope that she will get better.
 
We made a very difficult decision to end her suffering.  
 
Luci passed away today at 5:45 p.m.
 
It’s been a very very bad day.
