Dougie

Had to help doug cross the bridge tonight. Cancerous bone sheath tumor - very rare - no surgery avaiable - prognosis 2 months in increasing pain. I could not watch him suffer in pain any longer. Pain meds were not managing and he was always looking to me to stop the hurt. My heart is broken he was such a love and I miss him terribly.

My blog about grief The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not get over the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

My heart goes out to you, Kar. No one loved Doug more than you did, and you did everything possible for your sweet boy, don't ever forget that. Someone once told me that missing someone is a way of keeping them with us, even when they are not. I hope you can find some comfort in that. Take care of yourself. :grouphug

 

Godspeed sweet Doug :gh_run

Oh no, I didn't want to see this. I'm so sorry! You did what was best for him even though it hurts like hell. Sending you a ton of cyber hugs.

This is a tough one---a rare type of cancer, and he was just going to be 6. Damn, it just doesn't seem fair. I know these past weeks have been so hard for you, first not knowing what was wrong, and then seeing him in pain that you couldn't take away. Your decision must have been heart wrenching, but made because you love him so much. Run free without pain, sweet boy.

I'm so sorry you lost your precious Dougie, much too soon.

I am so sad and sorry to read this. He was a such a young boy.

Take comfort in knowing that Dougie is at peace, pain free and running once again with the wind.
