We are keep Espresso comfortable each day. It is one day at a time. I have arranged for a mobile vet to come and put her to sleep and take her to the pet crematorium when the time comes.
I thought it was time yesterday and left work early to go home to be with her. She was bright eyed and perky so we went for a slow walk.
I had a long talk with my vet who thinks it is best not to try and change her medications as she is not a science experiment.
I did make one change that has made all the difference. Her worst time in first thing is the morning as she is so stiff. I set the alarm for 6am and gave her the rimadyl and we both went back to sleep. I heard her stirring an hour later and she was up looking for breakfast so I feel good about this addition. I also will be late to work for a while so she can go for her slow walk every morning and smell the grasses...
Thanks for all your support.
