So, I know I am most likely going to be mocked for this but, I am sad today. We lost another member of our family last night.
We have had this little beauty for almost 6 years. During that time, she grew from the size of a looney to the size of a baseball. She never complained and just spent her life just being. In the last year, she developed a number of infections which I fought to cure. I spent hundreds of dollars on medications on her (whatever you do, don’t tell Alex that).
I thought we had turned the corner on her maladies last month when she began to swim erratically again. She would lie on the bottom of the tank upside down fighting to breathe. She would rally and start to swim upright again only to succumb to the effects of her maladies. Last night, it just got to be too much for her.
We will bury her in our backyard along with Lucky – our budgie and Caramel – our lion head bunny.
I will miss her.
