I've been trying to hide it, but she can see The End now

I came home, afraid. It wasn't as bad as it could have been, but it's a bit worse than I had hoped for. Eddie can't use any of her legs any more. The leg which first showed the problem now has sores on every toe. She seems so frail. She was happy to see me, tail wagging and reaching up for affection... but it fades pretty fast now. She's looking past me now, she can see things I can't see and she's ready to go there.

I'm spending every minute with her that I can. Tomorrow I'm going to take her back to the hospital to see if there's anything we can do. But I think that I'm going to have to consider letting her go real soon now, maybe tomorrow.

I'm not ready for this. But I think she is, and I have to respect that.
