Sometimes Life Just Sucks…

…and there’s nothing you can do about it. On a personal level, the only thing that can possibly be worse than watching someone you love die, is knowing that a second someone you love is about to die and that you cannot be with them, too.

    • Yes, partially. I have been in my hometown for a couple of days because my step-dad is on his deathbed. He was taken off of life support yesterday, and we are just waiting for the end. The day I left, Cros started rapidly going downhill again. He was diagnosed with Lymphoma this morning and passed away about 15 minutes ago.


      • Maedez I’m so sorry about Cros (read your reply above). Wish I could give you a hug. That’s tough.

        Your step dad will be in my thoughts and prayer.

        You’re right, sometimes, life just sucks…


  1. OMG i am so sorry:( Soooo sorry. I don’t know what to do or say except that I’m sorry for your huge loss. I know how you loved your sweet dog. I could feel it thorough your words and if I could feel it I can only imagine how much love your baby felt pouring off of you and into him. Please know that I’m thinking about you. I’m sorry about your stepdad as well. Peace to you friend, my heart is heavy for you.


    • Thank you so much! Our Cros was a very special boy. I was (and am still) so sad that I could not be there for his last moments. I know that I could not be in two places at once, but it was so hard! And my poor husband has had to deal with this whole thing largely by himself, as I am still out of town. Losing Cros a few hours before Charlie was just too much, but we are all coping somehow.
      Thank you for your well wishes. I really do appreciate it.


  2. Oh, you’ve got your hands full. I’m so very sorry. Cros loved you very, much and knew you adored him. May you find some peace this weekend.



    • Thanks! I still feel a bit guilty but, you know, a person cannot be in two cities at once. Crosley’s death does not quite seem real yet, as I have not been home. I am sure it will hit me the first time I walk in the house and he does not greet me at the door. 😦


      • Losing my dog was harder than losing family members, but I think it was because my dog was in my life daily, so a bigger void was felt. Let yourself grieve, it shows how much you loved him.


      • It has been really hard, especially for my husband who has had to do everything himself. I am still out of town, and won’t be back in Cinci for another 10 days. I work from home, and Crosley was such a huge, integral part of my day. It will be weird for awhile.

        I have grieved a bit, but I know that the full process will start when I get home and see that he is not there. Thanks so much for sharing your experience with me.
