Hi, Tracy, thank you so much for your comforting support and encouragement in my grief adjustment journey. Indeed, my beloved Noah is always and forever a heartbeat close to me, along with each of my beloved companions. They do give us the courage to reach beyond ourselves to embrace other relationships be they with other four footed waifs needing a Forever Home or people with whom we can share a mutual friendship.

I hope today is treating you, your precious Tang, and Anne kinidly, my friend.

Peace and blessings,
moon_beam

I haven't been here for quite a long time and just swung by. I saw you post about Noah and my heart sank. Very sorry for your loss of him as I know how precious he was to you. Having lost my soul dog to cancer I know how evil this disease is and how it steals the ones you love.

Gosh it must be so hard for you moving from your lovely home. As I get older and nearer to retirement it is something I ponder and worry about what will happen as I live on the land all 200 acres of it. I was having lunch with an older retired friend of mine today as he was feeling down as he is thinking of selling his land and moving and I know he is struggling with that concept.

I am glad you still have the presence of 4 legged friends in your life to greet you even if they are not your precious babies. I don't know how I would cope personally, probably not very well.

My best wishes to you as you have always been a comforting presence when people have lost their precious companions and are struggling. No doubt Noah is there with you in spirit and I also hope one day we will all be reunited with our beautiful animal spirits.

Hi, SummerHolly, thank you so very much for sharing the physical loss of my beloved Noah with me, and the major adjustments in my life without his sweet physical presence with me. When I moved into my beautiful home I thought it would be the last place for me in this physical realm. It brought peace to my very senior companions who shared my life at that time, as well as to me and the beloved companions who shared it with me as the years passed by. I would have those years over again if I could - - if I had the power to turn back Time, but then it would mean watching each of my beloved companions endure the ravages of illness that eventually led to their transition from this earthly realm. The memories I have of those years bring comfort to me as does the hope of being reunited with them in eternal joy. Adjustments in our older years are not easy for we realize that we no longer have "all the time in the world" and our physical bodies are not as nimble - - or healthy - - as they used to be. I am so sorry for your friend who is facing the adjustment to his "new realities" and will keep him in my thoughts and prayers that his heart will know a peace in his "new normals".

I cannot believe that my beloved Noah's one year angel-versary is quickly approaching in just about 37 days. It is true about the saying "Absence makes the heart grow fonder".

I hope life is treating you kindly, SummerHolly. Thank you again so much for your comforting support and encouragement.

Peace and blessings,
moon_beam

Today is exactly one year to the date when my beloved Noah transitioned from this earthly realm to join the angels and his fur family in heaven's perfect garden. So much has happened during this year, so many changes in my life each one with the agonizing reality that my beloved Noah is no longer physically here to share them with me. The changes haven't been positive -- the major one being having to move from the beautiful tranquility of our home in the woods to this stark barren environment of the senior condo. Because of this I am thankful my beloved Noah is now with the angels not having to adjust to this barren environment. I know he and his fur family have tried to ease the adjustment for me by sending the other residents' fur companions for occasional company, and for this I am thankful. But they can never "replace" my beloved Noah and fur kids who blessed my life with their loving devotion. The other residents' companions can never soothe the constant emptiness that is now in my heart and life.

My health is stable at least for the immediate now because of medication that has eased the severe pain that consumed my and my beloved Noah's life for 9 months last year. I am glad we had enough time together last year when he didn't have to hear me screaming and crying in excruciating, agonizing pain. I am thankful the last weeks of his earthly journey I was once again able to hold him close to me in my arms, when I could once again feel his sweet precious body close to me, close to my heart. My desire was to get better for HIM - - to be able to continue to have a good quality of life together with HIM. I am thankful for not being in excruciating pain anymore - - it's just not as meaningful now as it was during the last weeks that I still had my beloved Noah physically with me.

There is nothing that can change what happened last year - - and nothing that can ever take away the deep sorrow in my heart when my beloved Noah finally let me know on the night of November 9, that he, too, had been suffering for many months with a hideous illness that would take him physically from me 2 days later - - November 11, 2017. My brave beloved Veteran - - My heart forever belongs to my beloved Noah, and each of the wonderful companions who shared their earthly journey with me. My only hope now is to be reunited with you in heaven's perfect garden - - it is the only time when I will know complete happiness again.

Peace and blessings,
moon_beam

I hope you are doing okay. It really sounds like such a traumatic year with huge changes in your life that continues. There really is nothing good about getting oLder and losing ones health especially if animals mean everything to your life.

I often also think that I will only be completely happy again if I am reunited with my lost dogs and in particular my heart dog Holly so I totally understand that sentiment.

Hi, SummerHolly, thank you so very much for your most comforting support and encouragement. My beloved Noah, and each of my beloved companions, continue to watch over me and have interceded on my behalf with other condo residents who have precious companions and graciously share them with me with visits. If it were not for these precious souls I know my life would be very bleak here - - it has been, and continues to be - - a daily challenge in adjustment.

I hope today, and every day, is treating you kindly, SummerHolly, and I thank you again for your comforting support and for keeping me in your thoughts and prayers. It is very much appreciated.

Peace and blessings,
moon_beam

At 1:52 a.m. I received a call from Noah's overnight physician from the ER hospital. A "quick" ultrasound was done on Noah at some point after I left visiting him, and fluid was found in his abdomen. A sample of the fluid was taken which showed definite bacteria - - which means something in my precious Noah's abdomen was perforated or leaking. This is always considered a surgical emergency, which I approved.

At 2:20 a.m. the surgeon called me to let me know that there was nothing she could do for my precious Noah. His stomach had ruptured from multiple tumors and there was nothing but dead tissue in place of his stomach. The only thing that could be done for him was to mercifully transition him from this earthly realm. She agreed that she could keep Noah comfortable under anesthesia until I arrived to be with him when the drugs were administered. I arrived at the hospital around 3:20 a.m., and around 3:30 a.m. Noah joined his beautiful sibling baby sister Abbygayle and adopted big kitty brother Eli in heaven's perfect garden.

Needless to say my heart is aching right now and the tears are flowing, but there are so many things I am thankful for - - one of them having had the honor and privilege of being his human caregiver all the 14 years of his sweet physical life. I will get a pawprint and his ashes back sometime within the next week.

I want to thank each of you for your comforting support during this time of great sorrow,



Peace and blessings,

My dearest Moon_Beam, I'm devastated about Noah. You have comforted all of us for so long, we so feel your loss. I hope you have vids and pics, it really helps when you're in that space that hurts so bad, you can barely stand it. I never understood how incredibly hard your job is here, until I started replying to fur moms / dads on the site. I have such respect for you, you have comforted so many. It's wonderful to see the response you got from everyone. All my life we have had fur babies, just spent the last 3 yes without one. It's so hard, but you'll get through it.

Take care my friend

Hi, Bue's Mommy, thank you so much for your most welcome comforting support and encouragement. Even though it has been 1.5 years since my beloved Noah joined the angels I miss him and all of my beloved companions every day. But they have interceded for me by providing friendship with the precious companions of some of the other residents here in the senior condo community. My life is so different from what I thought it would be at this point in my life, - - it's a daily adjustment to the "new reality." But I am blessed with the many treasured memories I share with my beloved Noah and all of my beloved companions, and am comforted in knowing they are now restored to their former youthfulness in the company of the angels.

Thank you again, Bue's Mommy, for your kindness and thoughtfulness. I hope today is treating you kindly, Bue's Mommy, and please know you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Peace and blessings,
moon_beam

Hi moonbeam hope your life in the senior condo is going well. I just now realised this forum is sunsetting. I would like to thank you for your kind support on the loss of my dogs Holly and Kobi in the last years. I pop in to the forum every now and then and sometimes wonder how you are doing with the adjustments that you have had to make over the last couple of years.

Hi, SummerHolly, thank you so much for your most welcome note. The adjustment to the senior condo is still a "work in progress". One of my neighbor's cats has befriended me. Buster comes by on a daily basis to visit me and keep me company until he decides it's time to go home. He is such a sweet natured boy, and I look forward to his visits. I also take care of my brother's and sister in law's cat Scarlet when they are out of town. This has helped to ease the emptiness with the loss of my beloved Noah. I'm thankful I can take care of Scarlet but doing it enforces my reality that I am not physically capable of taking care of another precious companion on a full time basis.

It saddens me that this wonderful forum will be sunsetted come January 1, 2020, but I do understand Marc's decision. I thank you so much, SummerHolly, for your kindness and thoughtfulness and comforting compassion in sharing with me each of my losses. As always, I hope today, and every day, is treating you kindly, SummerHolly, and please know you are frequently in my thoughts and prayers.

Peace and blessings,
moon_beam

Hello moon_beam,
I haven’t been on the forum in years, but this thread caught my eye because you were so incredibly helpful and comforting when I lost my dear Wolfie. I read your devastating news about Noah. Sending you my very belated condolences on the physical loss of your precious boy. I hope you continue to feel his presence in your daily life and that life is going well for you.

I’m so sorry to see that the forum will be sunsetted in a couple of months; I hope most, if not all, people here join the Facebook group. This group and the special people here were a huge source of support in my time of need-truly a blessing.

Take good care,
Kelly
