    5.2 this morning. Haven't slept whole of last night and the night before as Magic was in lot of pain. His blood rest results were normal but he has fluid built up in abdomen which is related to heart murmur... beginning of the end as it is said... heart scan today but yesterday he was in tremendous pain so he was given 3 injections to get him through the night... a pain killer, an opioid and a diuretic....

    Am not sure why I am putting this information here... as if people dont already have enough of their own problems. I am sorry but I just needed to share it I guess.

    Take care all.

    @nutribolt , you posted about Magic, becauseyou know we care. Lots of us know and understand the pain of parting with beloved pets. It is the price we pay for having their devotion to us. Hurts like hell. They let you know when it is time to let them go. Be strong. Hugs.
