Hi,

As some of you know, Harley has been suffering from chronic ear infections and we have been preparing for his bilateral ear resection surgery.

He went in yesteday.

Five minutes into his surgery, Harley went into cardiac failure. There were 6 attempts at CPR and shots of adrenaline.

Harley passed away.

I have no words to describe how I feel. Empty, shocked, heartbroken, guilty. I am devastated. I love him so, so much and now he's not here. I would give anything in this world to have him back.

Thank you..

It's just such a shock. When the treatment options are 'surgery or neglect' it really isn't an option. His ears had gotten so bad, and I just wanted him to be comfortable, I would do anything for him. I didn't care how much it cost, as long as it meant he could live healthy and happily.

And then this.

I just can't bear the thought that he died there without me. I feel sick that maybe he thought I was leaving him there when I dropped him off and what if he thought I didn't love him anymore. I never left him anywhere.

I miss him so, so much.

I've learned over the last few months that the guilt we feel when they go is perfectly "normal". Even when we have done everything we possibly can. You did everything you could for Harley and he will know that.

Like you said, it was surgery or neglect, you had no option because I know you wouldn't have seen him suffer.

Please try and not beat yourself up. You left him there because you were trying to help him. Harley would never think that you didn't love him Hugs Hugs Hugs
