I'm so sorry you couldn't save her. Please don't feel as if you failed her, you did all you could! ((Hugs))

I am so sorry for your loss.

I'm very sorry Michelle - I believe everything happens for a reason even though we aren't always privvy to the reason why.
Please don't beat yourself up - you didn't fail her - you provided her a loving, caring home until the very end. That's all any of us can do.

Hugs ~

I'm so sorry, Michelle. I've been there and it's a sad place to be. It does make one feel helpless (even with a resident vet). Remember, you loved and cared for her while she was there.

Oh, Michelle, I'm so sorry to hear about Brava! I pray that you find comfort through the Good Shepherd Himself.

So sorry to hear about your loss of Brava....this is the hard part of owning and caring for our animals...sometimes our best just isn't enough. Rest easy knowing you did everything that you could....and she is no longer in any pain or distress.

Thinking of you as I believe we have all been there in some way. Time heals all wounds. She gave you a wonderful lamb to keep her memory in your heart:)

I am so sorry. Just like everyone else has said, you did what you could for her and you certainly did not fail her. She was very loved the short amount of time that she was here.

Becky Utecht said...

So sorry Michelle. You did everything you could.

Please don't blame yourself.

You have a vet on-site! He did everything he knew to do, and you did everything you knew to do.

Sometimes bad things happen, despite the most conscienscious care.

The loss is heartbreaking. Please try not to take on too much guilt in addition.

I am so sorry Michelle. She was a pretty ewe and made a gorgeous lamb for you. I hope you get an answer to what happened so you can rest better knowing you did everything you could for her.

I knew I'd cry. I did. My heart goes out to you. Rick is awesome and yes, you are so fortunate to have him. That would have so much harder were you alone.
