Special prayers tonight for Munchie and you. This stuff can be so draining on us as caregivers...even just the emotional toll, which is huge.

Really hope he feels better.

My trick for making the sub qs quicker is I would actually squeeze the bag, really hard. We used a small needle for Ruby's comfort so the bag needed a big squeeze.

Poor Munchie and you . Hope he starts to feel better after some sleep. You need to look after yourself too. Munchie is so lucky to have you as his Mum. Thinking of you and hoping he improves today.

Oh, Louise, the tears are streaming down my face. I'm so sorry for your loss! You did everything you could for Munchie and I'm sure he knows and appreciated it. Glad you were there to provide him comfort as he made the transition to the rainbow bridge. Wishing there was something I could say that would provide you comfort but I'm certain your heart is breaking at this time. Thinking of you! Holli

Hugs to you....

Oh Louise, I am so sorry. How you two struggled for so long with the cancer even before the diabetes. Poor guy just couldn't do it anymore. Your staggering grief will be twofold as I know his recent care must have consumed most of your waking hours. Nothing to do now except try to bear the pain.....
I am glad for you and Munchie that he was home and he was in your arms.
I hope you come here whenever you want a shoulder to cry on.

Tara

Louise, I'm so sorry to hear this. You did everything possible for your little angel and I'm sure he knows that.

Godspeed to Munchie and many prayers for you. No doubt, you'll be reunited one day in a better place.
