Unexpected loss

April 19, 2009 | By NephraCat | 2 comments

My buddy Alex

My Alex was 9 years old and seemed to be inperfect health, when one morning I woke to my husband frantically calling his name. I looked down at the floor in front of the bed and there was Alex...gone. He was already cold and rigamortis. He was laying like he was just sleeping. We had just brought him to the vet for a check up a couple of months before and he was in great shape. When we called the vet and brought him in they were just as shocked as we were. They did the autopsy free of charge because they wanted to kinow what happened as bad as we did. All they ended up finding was that nothing was wrong with him and told us that it had to have been a massive stroke. I'm thankful he never suffered but it happened so fast we never got to say goodbye. That was 4 years ago now and it still hurts.

I am sorry for your loss and time may make the pain fade but never go ... remember all the fun and good times you had with your baby.

I am so sorry for your loss. The hurt does not go away but it does fade. I still feel the hurt from when our first little girl died and that was 13 years ago, but then I remember the good times and the hurt goes away. We will see them again. Try reading animals and the afterlife, it is a great book and it has helped me with out latest loos, our beloved Doc. Doc was daddys boy and I really miss him on my lap and trotting around the house. I know the hurt expecially when it is as sudden as it was with your Alex. Not being able to say goodbye is really hard but plerase read that book, that will help. Take Care.
