Oh boy. So much has happened in the past few days and weeks. Steve and I moved into our new house. We LOVE it. It feels more and more like "home" every day. I misplaced the USB cords in the move, so though I do have some pictures to share, they will have to wait. This post, unfortunately, could not wait.
Horrible news. We had to say goodbye to our sweet Miles on Wednesday morning. His health took a bad turn and we ran out of treatment options and funds. I cannot recall a more devastating event in my life. Being that he was only 1 1/2 years old, we continued to hold out hope for his eventual recovery and remission from IMPA (Immune Mediated Poly-Arthritis). To recount all that his little body had been through to this point would take forever. His life was short, but so full of love and purpose. The pain of his loss is so fresh, it's hard to imagine ever getting over it, though I know we will with time.
We leave for a 2 week Disney vacation on the 15th. We're looking forward to some advanced healing and rest only The Happiest Place on Earth could provide as well as a fresh start to our unplanned future without Miles.
I can't have my baby Pug back. So the next best thing is getting another one, right? Hold me back, Stevie, hold me back.
