I haven’t shared this on the blog yet, but about a month ago we lost our “Main Man Milo”.
He had a ‘blockage’ (sort of like kidney stones) back in February and we were able to get him flushed before his blood became septic (to the tune of $1,800).
The blockage re-occured again in May, and short of a surgery to re-route his urine stream, there was nothing we could do. The surgery would have been another ~$5,000 and was very invasive – essentially routing him from a boy to a girl tract. We couldn’t afford the surgery, or to see him suffer – and he passed quietly at home at the ripe old age of 3.
Needless to say, we were devastated. Even Hubby shed a tear as we buried him in our backyard.
A dear friend knew of his passing and made a remembrance gift to commemorate his short life.
It’s a tiny little bottle with a heart suspended inside.
The time and attention to detail that she put into this – from the invisible thread, to the twine-wrapped neck. You know the design work could only be from Amazing Amy.
What an incredibly thoughtful and creative gift.
It sits on my bookshelf as a reminder of the little life that was lost (and of the value of friendship).
Thank you Amy.
Rest in Peace Milo.
Have a great one.
