Day 4 - We want her to get better

We really want her to but I think we may really have to accept the reality that Xin Xin may not pull through at all.

When we visited her this morning, her breathing was ragged. X-ray showed that there is water in her lungs. It also showed a kidney stone approximately 0.5cm in her kidneys. Surgery does not seem to be an option. There seems to be nothing the vets can do except to hope that the stone will break down and perhaps be flushed out. We really wish that will happen but deep down, we know we are hoping for a miracle.

The drip is painful. Everytime she moves her foreleg, she will meow in pain. It really breaks our hearts. There is just nothing we can do for her at all. We sang to her, we told her that Yuan Yuan is waiting for her back home, we told her to be strong, we told her Chang Chang is waiting to fight her back home, we told her that we want her to still be the first to greet us whenever we reach home.

Our home is suddenly very quiet without her presence. I am not sure if the 4 of them noticed her absence. We do. Very much.

Awww thats so sad! I know how it feels to be in this position. My cat had a hole in the heart and there was nothing that could fix it. We knew that he would not live past 3 :-( and he sadly suffered a heart attack, too him to the vet but it was too late to save him and they suggested we let him go. so sad!
