Not going- anywhere for- awhile!

|My Mom just called me. Molly is headed to the vet again. For the past two years, we've had a fight with all kinds of issues with Molly including arthritis, hip problems and allergies.
We knew the past few weeks have been very hard on her. The medicine and supplements aren't working, and the vet is having a hard time helping her. She's in so much pain right now. She can't move much without any kind of help. She'll whine or yelp and then "apologize" to us.
The vet warned my Mom that it might be time to let Molly go. Her pain won't go away, and she's [the vet] afraid that the suffering is just going to get worse.
Molly is our family dog. She lives with my Mom just a couple of hours away but, she's always been "ours". Molly has been my friend since I was a young teenager. She's kept me company so many times, and when I'm at my Mom's she still sleeps at the foot of my bed. We've always had a special bond.
My Mom's heart is just broken right now. She doesn't want to let her "baby" go. My brother feels the same way. I do too. We're doing everything we can to keep Molly going, and keep her pain and suffering free. But, the vet is concerned that it might be time to let Molly stop pain and suffering all together.
I am so heart broken right now. Molly's brother Mungo had to be let go a few years ago. He had a bad cancer and after a ton of treatment, his poor body finally gave up. Letting Mungo go was so hard for all of us. Just the thought that I may have to let "my special girl" go is so hard.
