Goodbye Lacey. Play Hard at the Bridge.
« on: May 25, 2009, 11:19:12 AM »
Little Lacey passed away last night. She was my first true  :heart: rat and I already miss her dearly. She was sick, but seemed to be doing better. However she had just the other day started breathing weird. I'm so upset, but I haven't lost my head. I'm getting a necropsy done first thing tomorrow. I really thought she was going to make it.

In her last weeks.


Lacey when I first got her.

She is gorgeous. That first picture just makes me melt. Losing a heart rat is incredibly tough. I am so very sorry.

Oh no...  :'( My heart sank when I read the subject line. I am so sorry for your loss, Drache.  :'( Poor little Lacey fought so hard for you, and you did everything you could to help her. I am so sorry that she passed. I am so glad you had a few more days to spend with her. I wish she had recovered fully for you..but sometimes no matter what we do, it is just their time.  :(

I hope your heart heals soon..play hard at the Bridge little fighter Lacey.  :heart:

I got so sad reading that subject line. I had really hoped she would pull through for you.
Play hard at the bridge, pretty Lacey.  :heart:

Well, I finally got closure at around 7 tonight. I found out that Lacey had a massive brain tumor and there was nothing that could have been done. The vet said it was so huge that he was surprised she lived at all. It gave me a little peace knowing that it was just her time. And although I didn't get to say goodbye properly, I think she knows how much she was loved.
