Lucie passed away early yesterday morning in bed as peacefully as was possible.
A week ago Monday, she had her regular checkup and besides a growth on her ear was reported in good health. Quickly after she got sick. Really sick. She was refusing all food. Drinking much more. Having trouble walking - escalating in not being able to walk at all. Not being able to hold her pee. Sleeping even more than usual.
On Wednesday she had a full body ultrasound. Wednesday night we found out she had: an insufficient heart valve, enlarged pulmonary hypertension, fluid around the heart, lung cancer, pressure on the ribs, enlarged kidneys, a lump in her bladder, and was in cardiac arrest.
That night she ate a little chicken. She got hugs and a belly rub. Over night, she had an episode, which I think was a heart attack. I calmly pet her and she moved to one of her positions in bed. I told it was okay to let go and within two hours she did.
I want to thank everyone personally who sent prayers, rosettes, and well wishes. I'm afraid I'm going to be unable to, though. As some of you may know, I'm battling ovarian cancer. I had my chemo on Wednesday and it makes me unable to concentrate on anything or sit still. Being on the computer is very hard under those circumstances alone, but I do want to let you each know how appreciative I am for your wishes and notes.

I am so sorry Lucie and Trista. I love you and you will be missed. Love, Josh and Kristin
Our prayers are with Lucie Goosie. She was a beautiful dog, and had a loving and beautiful home. Her posts on STAFU were full of spunk. You brought her alive for all of us in virtual dog world. Raja Babu and I feel that we knew her. Our prayers are with you also. We know that you will beat ovarian cancer.
We will keep you in our prayers.
Angel Raja Babu, PC and Mom
Hugs and Love and Prayers to you...and your precious Momma...xoxo River
Oh my goodness, we are in shock to hear about Lucie, I am so sorry for your loss. At least you were with her and let her go. She was such a lucky girl to have found you. Her last years were so full of love thanks to you. How is Lottie dealing with not having Lucie around? We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers. Linda, Romeo and Juliette
