In Memory of Rajah Tajah
Born 8-19-93 Went to Rainbow Bridge 4-23-09
It has taken me a few days to write this, & it is with great sadness that I share the news that our Rajah Tajah has passed away. After months of fighting pancreatitis & possibly cancer, it became too much for Rajah. Recently, Rajah completely stopped eating after a few days of vomiting, this was the worst episode for her up to this point & she had lost even more weight, which made her incredibly feeble making her not able to keep her balance. Rajah had many episodes like this in the past 4 months but she rebounded after a day or two... this past time marked the turning point for Rajah & we knew in our hearts that this was the end of her journey & we wanted to give her dignity & release her from the pain of starving to death.
Rajah died in my arms on April 23, 2009 when Dr. Westerfield helped her cross over. Rajah's death was too quick for my liking because I didn't finish telling her all the things that I wanted to... but I think as she drifted towards the light she could still hear my voice echoing with love for her.
Before Rajah left this world, I let each of her fur siblings kiss her goodbye. Our Rudi, gave her the typical sniff & gave her a gingerly tiny little kiss on her nose. Our Rori, resident hellion puppy, sniffed her & ran off in puppy indifference... that's the 3rd k-9 child fer ya. Our sweet, soulfull Remi sniffed Rajah, put both paws on each side of Rajah's head & kissed her nose & then proceeded to clean Rajah's ears & face... something she never had done to any of her fur siblings before. I will never until the day I die forget how sweet Remi said goodbye to her sister Rajah.
I had long hoped that this would not be the end for our Rajah Tajah. We left no stone unturned & searched for any & all answers to treat Rajah. We wanted her to stay & we had fought for her & had done all the things we could think of medically, financially, emotionally... but sometimes God has other plans, no matter how much you may disagree with Him.
We want to thank all our family & friends who have supported us throughout this final journey with Miss Rajah Tajah... especially all our FBRN friends who have pointed us in the right direction when we were looking for answers that were hard to find. Until we meet again, rest in peace our stoicly sweet Rajah Tajah, princess baby girl.
Mommy, Daddy, your brothers Rudi & Rori & little sister, Remi all love you so very much.
