I am overwhelmed. My mother is in palliative care dying from small cell lung cancer and my best friend for the last 10 years(my dog)is also suffering. He also has cancer and it has caused him to develope hemolytic autoimmune anemia. He hasn't has much of an appetite for the last 6 weeks. I cook him roast beef, chicken, everything I can think of to get him to eat. I haven't had him put to rest yet because he still had that light in his eyes and was still swimming everyday. In the last 2 days he seems like he is in discomfort. I know I have to take him and have his pain put to an end. I am overwhelmed by this. He has been the very best friend I have ever had in my life. I don't know how to get through this and knowing that I am going to lose my mother in a very short time makes it even harder. Does anyone have any ideas of how I can get through this? I don't know how or if I can get through this. I am having meltdowns every half hour.
