I posted this on Facebook yesterday and wanted to share it with y'all so you'll understand why I've not been blogging much lately and may not have much to say for a few days. As much as I'm hurting for and with Hayley, I know her grief is immeasurably deeper.
My daughter is without a doubt the bravest, most compassionate and most selfless person I know. She made the difficult decision yesterday to say goodbye to her beloved kitty Loki rather than put him through more treatments that had only a small chance of saving his life. Loki was only 2 years old so it was especially hard to know what was best for him. She held him in her arms as he crossed the Rainbow Bridge and the last thing he saw was her face. Hayley, you are my hero and you make me proud every day but never more so than yesterday.
