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 heal and 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.

The ondosetron is making her feel much better. It's anti-nausea.  Her kidneys are still crap. And this will only last a short while. But she's eagerly eating breakfast and dinner. (As long as momma's meatloaf is part of it). And still very much enjoying life.

She takes 6 meds in the morning.  5 are for making her tummy feel better.  But at least right now they're working.

That's a great drug.  I had to use it for nausea during some cancer treatment. Glad she's happy and feeling better!

I’m late reading this thread but I’m so glad you have some more time! 
She knows she is finally loved. I’m so glad you found each other.

So sorry about CC.  I am glad you have more time with her.  She is finally part of a real family.

We saw her doctor yesterday.  Her kidney values are so bad he said no need to keep checking them. Creatinine is over 12 (normal less than 2) and BUN was 102. (Normal less than 30)

He also said that she's maxed out on meds. So once they stop working we're done.  

Thankfully each day she still gets up and is ready to attack the day. I fight daily to find something she will eat. But when I find it she eats enthusiastically. She'd been on a roll with my meatloaf,  but that's waining. Tonight we try pork shoulder. 

I think I still have a week. 

But, my dad will be leaving me probably within 48 hours. 2021 is really going to suck for me.

Enjoy every last day you have with her. 

I'm so sorry this year is not going great.

Mary Pat, I'm so sorry to hear about your Dad.   You're right, 2021 is not off to a great start for many.  Let's hope it gets better. 

If you are letting CC have whatever she wants to eat you might want to try a Nathan's skinless hot dog.  In the week before Trolley passed away she was very picky about food. She was visiting on a weekend and I gave her a Nathan's skinless hot dog right out of the package after many futile attempts to get her to eat something besides Milk Bones.  She scarfed down the hot dog and came back for more.  She had been turning her nose up at everything offered including things she would usually eat with gusto.   Also give her some ear rubs for us.

Mary Pat, I am so sad and sorry to read this.  Take comfort in knowing that your sweet girl is at peace and pain free.
