Comments... Ms. Abigail was on Morphine IV's for the last almost 6 months of her life. She would go into the vets every 10 to 14 days and get her Morphine treatments. I spent countless days and nights, sitting on the floor with her, because she would be paralyzed and unable to walk. She had a very short, pain filled life, but I loved her more than anything in this world. I loved her very much, and I miss her.
