Death, Again

It's been a terrible week. I've only done a couple of pages - not even one scene.

I've been taking care of my dog, Jordan, who finally had to be put to sleep yesterday. He was in third stage kidney failure, and the vet only gave him a couple of months at best. And that didn't include the other things that had begun to happen to him.

I had to give him mercy.

It's done a lot to me, though. Maybe by tomorrow I'll feel like writing. Today and yesterday, I just feel blah.

Here's hoping.

I hope you feel much better, and I'm so sorry to hear about your dog. It's such a tough thing to go through, but it's usually for the best. I'm sending all my good vibes to you today, and I hope the muse blesses you soon. Take care. <3

So sorry for your loss. Your focus is where it needs to be so don't try to rush your grief. The writing and ROW80 peeps will be here when you're ready.

I'm so, so sorry for your loss. It's so hard to lose a pet, especially when you have to make the decision to put it to sleep. But remember you're blessing him by not allowing him to suffer.

Take care!

I'm so sorry to hear that, losing a pet is not something people really understand unless they've been through it. I hope you feel better soon, but don't forget to take your time.

Thanks, everyone, for you wonderful words and good wishes. It's been a miserable several days, but you've all helped.

Things would have been much more difficult without you.
