Welcome to a day in my life. I can't guarantee that this will be an exciting read for anyone. My life is filled with all the mundane activities of a stay-at-home-mom just trying to raise her three sons to be the best men they can be.

Saying Goodbye


Yesterday we said goodbye to our beloved Oliver.

Last week the vet was finally able to determine what was wrong with him. He had Intestional Lymphoma. He was in the end stages. She put him on Prednisone to help him feel a little better in the hopes of giving us a couple of weeks to say goodbye. We had 5 days ... for which we were very grateful.

He will be terribly missed by us all. He was such a sweet boy.

  1. Sorry to hear about Oliver. :(
    We lost our own grey tabby last month. It was a tough thing for the boys to go through. Our pets are such an integral part of our lives... so sad when we have to say good bye.

  6. I'm so sorry to hear about Oliver Barbara. I have two "boys" of my own (dogs) and am just dreading the day I'll have to do the same. They are both 13 and I love them with all my heart! We give so much of our hearts to our pets and they become a part of our families. Hugs!

  10. Sorry that he will no longer be under foot and lazing around. Pets certainly have a way of become a big part of our lives.
