Pools of Sorrow, Waves of Joy

March 19, 2008

So, it’s been a while since I could bring myself to write here again.. Actually, it’s been 2 weeks to the day since Celeste crossed Rainbow Bridge. While I’ve been mostly okay, there are times when I realise that she is really gone forever and then I just break down all over again. Thankfully, those times are growing father and father apart.

I’ve been through this before, as some of you know. The summer before I adopted Celeste, my cat Sophie had to be euthanized because she had an inoperable throat tumor and couldn’t eat or drink. So, unfortunately, I know from experience that the hurt never really goes away, but it does lessen with time… and lots of it.

Don’t give up on me, yet, as I will have good news to report in the next day or two. I just needed to let everyone know that I am amazed by the support you’ve shown me and am touched by your kindness. I am truly blessed to have friends like you. Your words of support and empathy got me through those really rough spots.

Thank you. Really, truly. 🙂

Glad to hear you’re doing okay, I can only imagine how diffcult it’s been for you these past couple weeks.

Looking forward to the good news as well 🙂

I am glad that you are feeling better. I knew that you would update again, once you were feeling a bit better. Have not given up on you! Not to worry…!!

I know it doesn’t help at all, but…

Yesterday my cat was acting off. He was very quiet and panting. I was going to make an appointment in the morning, but I had your story with Celeste in my mind, and I felt nervous, so I took him to the emergency place. Turns out he had a blockage, and they had to get a catheter in and give him IV fluids. He was there all night, and he’s staying at my vet tonight. My vet said I did the right thing and it might have been too late if I’d waited.

I just wanted to tell you that my reading about what happened to your cat probably saved Jolee’s life.

Anyway, I hope you’re feeling a little better lately!
