RIP Roxy Laroo 7/9/99-12/6/10 Today I had to let my baby soar... she fought it 'til the end and passed with her ballie in her mouth, her head in my arms and her Daddy holding her face. "Roxy, you're a good girl. I love you"
Today has been the hardest day of my life. My Roxy has been battling cancer. The cancer was discovered Oct 8th, 2010 and at that point it seemed she had reached her limit. I cried and cried and she rallied for me. I got her on an appetite stimulant and she started to eat. She defeated all odds and held on and on. We spent 10 days in the Keys and she was thriving. She was so happy living in the moment. We then returned home and she was content for another month. Again she lost her appetite and she was fading away. She was so fatigued but she kept on living for me. She dropped from 60 lbs to 35lbs in a matter of 3 months. I tried everything to get her to eat. I cooked EVERYTHING AND ANYTHING. Tried this and tried that... her appetite stimulants stopped working (I even tried to double the dose). She had gotten so skinny but she still was so happy to see me. Lastnight I put a twin mattress in the living room and we slept together. She didn't get up not even once. She had rough nights. I knew today was the day so we started the day with a smores poptart and milk and a frolic on the beach (even though it was freezing). I feel so lost and empty. I lay in her bed and just breath her in.
