I couldn't find the right words


So I made my dear friend a card. Early this month a new lump was found on Kizmit, over her spine and the vet can't do anything but make her comfortable and as pain free as possible.

My friend is the strong silent type, broke the difficult news via an email and I can envision her sitting at her computer sobbing her eyes out, much as I am now thinking about it.

I can't make the hurt go away, I can't turn back the hands of time, I can't do anything but stay here for 'the call' and hug her as tight as I possibly can.

This pet is loved so much, she'll enjoy as many of the little things she can and then...the greatest responsibility of all and the hardest for a pet lover.

What a difficult time your friend is going through! There's really nothing that makes it easier or less painful, but I am sure your presence will be a great comfort to her. She should also take comfort in knowing that she gave Kizmet a very good life.

My heart aches for her because I can just imagine how I would feel if one of my babies got sick :o( You did a lovely and thoughtful thing Berta. I just hope something can be done.
