    Default Sydney's Struggling a Little

    I havenít written about Sydney in a while, but he is struggling a little and Iím struggling a lot. His good days still outnumber the bad days, for which I am VERY grateful, but I do see the decline little by little. I miss taking him on our long leisurely walks or racing him down the hallway. I miss him being awake most of the day.

    I just HATE heart disease so much and watching him go through this is killing me. I know I am doing everything and anything possible for him, but I also know that he wonít get better. I love him soooooo much.

    For some reason today Iím having a really bad day dealing with all this and needed to let it out and I know you guys understand.

    Sending hugs your way. I think it makes it so hard to face the health problems in these little dogs because they give us so much love. Sydney sounds like a wonderful dog, and he is very lucky to have such a caring mom like you. It is good to hear that the good days still outnumber the bad. I hope your day brightens up a bit

    I'm sorry Joyce it is so hard to care for our wee ones when they are struggling with these conditions Please know that you and Sydney are in our thoughts.

    He is lucky to have such a fantastic carer. He is taking life at his own pace which is great, and whilst he's still having more good days than bad then you are doing ok.

    Many of us have been where you are, and know the agony, it really helps to be able to share and support each other.

    Sending my best to your little guy. I don't own a cavalier but I can still understand how it feels to have someone you love sturggle. My 4 yr old son have a small surgery yesterday. It was a very tough day doing everything I could think of the comfort him thur the whole thing. He is fine today he's his same old wild child self. I could only imagen how it would feel if I had to worry watch and comfort a child or a much loved dog with anything on-going. Just do the best you can and its alright to have a bad day yourself every once in a while. Hope you and Sydney has a great day together very soon.

    Thanks all for all your kind and loving support. It made me cry, but maybe that was a good thing. I've been holding it all in and crying made me feel a little better.

    MomObvious: sorry you son had surgery and glad he is on the mend. It must have been very worrisome for you.
