"On Thursday February 27 2020, Nanners visited the oncologist for his chemo, but it did not go as planned. Nanners was weak and his lymph nodes located by his throat had increased in size. The Oncologist was blunt and told me that the chemo was no longer working and that it would not have any effect on Nanners other than a negative one. It was time to start palliative care. Friday was an ok day and Nanners was his usual self. Saturday morning I said goodbye to go to work and unfortunately, by late afternoon, my husband told me that Nanners was not doing well. He was not eating and shaking. When I got home, I saw my baby boy not being himself and in pain. We gave him the pain medication that Dr. Glew provided for him...but we knew it was time. It was time for me to say goodbye to my baby boy. My friend, my family, my soulmate. We understood each other, we were connected mentally and spirituality. He helped me become the person I am today and the reason why I have so many friends. He helped me discover what is a sentient being and why I need to respect them. He loved me like no one else. We laughed together, we ate together and we cried together. He was my world and now that his spirit is free...he is my whole universe. He crossed rainbow bridge at 11:42 am today. He had all his favorite snacks the night before and in the morning (even pancakes for breakfast). His longtime veterinary doctor and friend of the family, Dr. Glew, performed the procedure at our home on his bed surrounded by his longtime best friends the dragons, marshmallow and piggy. My dear friend Suzannah was here to help me through and laugh with us about anecdotes of his existence. Nanners crosses Rainbow Bridge and leaves behind his rescue sister Shenna, his dad Antonio, and me, his loving mother. I am grateful for his existence, his fierceness, his loving character, his paws that smelled like popcorn and fritos, his unending kisses and his loud loud snoring. Love you my dear Nanners....we adopted you at 3 years old and now you say goodbye at 14. Eleven beautiful years of my life. My dear baby boy, my son and my existence.
