I don't often share personal matters here, but today I come asking for your prayers for my Mom. Yesterday, her beloved miniature schnauzer Jenny died. Jenny would have been 10 in September, and was the light of my Mom's life, and a huge part of the family. On Wednesday night, Jenny suffered a terrible seizure that lasted at least 1/2 hour. My sister and Mom rushed her to the vet. She then was taken to an animal hospital yesterday, where an MRI revealed that Jenny had suffered a massive stroke, which then caused the seizure. She passed away yesterday at the hospital, and my sister, Mom and I went to get Jenny and bring her home. It was one of the saddest, most heartbreaking things I have ever witnessed.
Jenny was so healthy and active and loving, right up til the very end. She never met a soul she didn't love. This comes as a total shock. The last time I saw her was Tuesday, and she was her usual frisky and playful self.
My mom, who is 85 and has moderate dementia, is devastated and shocked. So are we. She keeps forgetting why they took Jenny to the vet in the first place. I worry what this loss will do to her. Jenny was such a huge comfort to my Mom when we lost my Dad 8 years ago to leukemia.
Could you please pray for comfort and peace for my Mom? It really means alot. Thank you so much.
