With tears in my eyes and hoping the keyboard won’t short out from the moisture ~
I wanted to let you know that the veterinarian just left our house. Tiger had to be put to sleep because it turns out he was getting liver failure or a tumor, and his eyes and gums had already jaundiced.
I talked to God about Tiger. I seemed to sense that God was saying, “Don’t worry, Tiger will be with Me, and you will see him again some day.” I don’t care what theology would say about that, I’m going to believe it.
Meanwhile, Micah seems upset by the goings-on tonight (and “Mama and Daddy crying, and where is my brother?”) but was comforted by the veterinarian’s assistant, who gave him a wonderful, calming massage, got his shots caught up and put him on a better food plan.
Thank God for loving, traveling vets.
This was one long day. I woke up with a very bad headache so called in sick to work, then the letting go of Tiger tonight. I slept with Tiger all morning, and he didn’t leave the bed all day.
Dave said a wonderful sentiment about Tiger that I will translate into a poem post in a couple days, hopefully. If you don’t see me tomorrow – well, please just pray for dear ol’ Debb and Dave, please, and even “Baby” Micah. Thank you!
By the way, I have another prayer request for you that I don’t have time to put in Prayer Corner yet. Please pray for Alex as he decides his future course for his college career and struggles with numerous things.
