Just want to add to please reach out on the helpline.  1 844 TRIPAWDS.   This is just too hard to try and go through this alone.  I know it took a huge amount of courage to come back and post.  We all just want to help somehow, someway.

I'm so sorry to hear this. As Sally said, this is shocking and I'm sure somewhat numbing for you. It took a lot of courage for you to go ahead with the surgery. Of course it was out of love for Shellie.

Please come back and check in with us when you are ready. In time you may be ready to prepare a tribute to Shellie with photos and stories so we can get to know her better.

My deep condolences. Hugs,

Kerren and Tripawd Kitty Mona heartheartheart

I too was just catching up on your posts and I'm so sorry for your loss.  It breaks my heart, to much suffering for our furry friends and then for their human companions.

Take care

Oh Sweetheart we are soooo sorry for you! Shellie was a very brave girl, but you are a warrior yourself! As with everyone else, I am shocked at how quickly things transpired for you! Please be kind to yourself and don't feel any guilt over what you tried to do for your darling girl! It sounds like she didn't want to make a big fuss about leaving you in this world, but please know that she will always be with you in Spirit! My heart breaks for you...

sending thoughts of love and support. Keep well during your time of grief and know that there will always be someone here to listen to you vent or just to talk about your darling Shellie!
