Response to fizzgig (Original post)

9. My heart goes out to you and your older baby.

I cried reading your post because I've been in your shoes. Wish I could give you definitive advice.

I kept my 17yo girl alive 6wks after I should have helped her go, when her quality of life was probably worse than your girl's. But who's to say if I was being too selfish.

Your girl is still purring - that's something. Take it day by day. You'll get a sense when she's in constant pain and any intervention is very temporary.


A little dark humor, hope it's not too inappropriate...remember...day by day. You'll know when she's suffering too much.
