Thank you so much Sandi for the beautiful words of comfort. The second guessing is really difficult. My husband was so sure that we had to do it for Max, so that he wouldn't suffer, so I am lucky that he is strong.Ohhhh Kathleen---biggest, longest hugs to you. I KNOW it was the right, & most loving thing to do & please do not 2nd guess that!
My, how hard to lose one so precious---we all feel your pain. May God comfort your weary heart & may you feel our circle of compassion & love holding you.
I want this not to be true but am trusting that God will hold you & welcome little Max into His very own lap.
When you are doing better please let us know--we are here on the bench, holding your place warm.
Much love & many prayers.
Thank you so much Pat. I will remember what your daughter said and try not to think about what else might hav happened, and instead try to focus on the happy memories. Thank you - this really does help very much. I needed this reminder.Oh Kathleen, I am so very sorry for your loss. I am trying to type this though tears for you but not having much success. My daughter recently said something that may make you feel a little better - "the only way to win the what if game is not to play at all". You did what was best for Max even though it tore your heart out. You freed him from pain and suffering and that was the ultimate gift. Rest in peace sweet Max. Prayers for you and your family.
Thank you so much Maggie. So many of us have been through it and know how much it hurts. That is why this community is so special. We all understand how deep the love is. Thank you for all you do to keep it running.I’m so very sorry! i know how much your heart is aching!
Thank you so much Paulann for your comforting words. It really does help so much.Kathleen,
How I wish this was just a very bad dream and in the morning you would wake up with your sweet little Max snuggled up next to you.....wagging his tail & smothering you with kisses like only he could do. It just doesn't seem fair that he was taken away from you so suddenly and at such a young age. I'm praying God will comfort you and wrap His loving arms around you like only He can do at a time like this. Please know we are praying for you and are here for you........Words seem so inadequate - I'm just so very very sorry - I wish I had the power to make your aching heart mend/heal....that will take time. I am asking the comforter to flood your thoughts/heart with all the wonderful years of happy memories you and Max shared together.

Thank you so much Dee. We do have such a special deep connection with them. At least I know that I loved him deeply very single day and he must have known that.I am so sorry to hear about max. I am writing to you trying and to hold back tears that’s not working. I am so sorry that you are hurting and no words can mend your heart but know that it’s never goodbye it’s see you later max. I believe we will see our little babies again that capture our hearts so close like no other those little paw prints just imprint in our hearts forever and has such beautiful meaning, maybe not now but in our future we will see them again. So sorry. Dee
