    My Mia - Osteosarcoma

    The tumor in Mia's mouth doubled in size over the past 2 weeks and in the past couple of days, she's been eating only sporadically, and that's only when I fed her with a plastic spoon. Her spirit declined over the past couple of days and this morning, DH and I made the very difficult decision to let her go. We realized that we were holding on for our own reasons and that giving her a narcotic pain reliever twice a day just so she could manage to eat and stay around for us just wasn't fair to her.

    She gave us 11 years of pure joy. She was such a good girl! Goodbye, Mia. You will always be in our hearts!

    I'm so sorry for your loss.

    It sounds like you were blessed to have her, and she was just as blessed to have you.
