It is with a heavy heart that I write this. To all of my regular readers, followers and friends you may know that Cosmo celebrated his 5th birthday last week. On Friday morning he wasn't feeling himself, he was rather mopey. I had a long day with the boys, there was no school and for son #2's birthday we took 9 boys paintballing. When I got home, Cosmo was having difficulty breathing and meowing ALOT! He doesn't usually meow, we actually thought for quite some time that he was mute. It turned out he was just a man of few words. We rushed in to the Animal Hospital and it was determined that he was in heart failure. I was crushed!! It was so sudden. They gave in diuretics to clear the fluid from his lungs, kept him in an oxygen chamber for the weekend. We brought him home yesterday but the prognosis is NOT good. The vet couldn't indicate how long he had but cardiomyopathy is not curable. He is on heart medication and a diuretic. They said typically 3-6months is the most. I am sooooo very sad. I cried so many tears all weekend that I can't cry any more. I have decided to hold him as much as I can and enjoy what time we have left. He is not in any pain and quite happy to be cozied up in his bed. So my friends, I will most likely not blog as often as I would like but will try to keep you posted on stitch"y" stuff.
This is Cosmo telling me to take a break from blogging. Thank you for your support! I never imagined last week when I posted that I hoped to have many more years with my furry friend (truly my stitching buddy) did I think it would be cut short sooooo quickly.
