A note from Buttons' Mom...
This blog has been quiet lately in part because Buttons herself quieted down a bit. In February Buttons was diagnosed with primary pulmonary hypertension and secondary heart failure. The pressure in her lungs was basically causing her heart to fail. Her cardiologist said that our goal was to get Buttons to her birthday with quality of life. We passed that goal in September.
Over the last few weeks, however, Buttons has been having more and more trouble with her tummy. Yesterday, our regular vet discovered a large mass in Buttons' stomach. Buttons was in pain, and it was time to let her rest.
Buttons passed peacefully in my arms this afternoon, the 6th anniversary of her Gotcha Day.
Rest in peace, Princess Buttons. Rest in peace...
