Baby Girl passed away today.
She lived a long, long, happy and adventurous life of nearly 18 years. Due to complications of breast cancer, it became necessary for euthanasia today. Allowing common sense and intuition to guide us, we trusted Baby Girl to let us know if it was time for euthanasia or if she would prefer to die on her own. That sounds weird, but some of you will know what I mean.
In the last couple of days her efforts changed from being okay to obvious endurance of pain. We had decided that we would at least wait until she stopped eating, which would be the most practical sign of her being done here. She hadn’t eaten since last Thursday.
Cyprus made the difficult decision today, took the day off, and comforted Baby Girl through her last moments.
