In Memory of Bon Bon
This week, the Rainbow Bridge has added yet another sweet confection to its candy box. Sadly, Bon Bon has lost her brave struggle with the histoplasmosis that had ravaged her petite body.
After spending weeks in the hospital on IV fluids and receiving potent antifungal medications, Bon Bon was still showing no improvement. Rather, she continued to lose weight, vomit and her blood pressure was plummeting. The consulting specialist in the animal hospital stated that her condition was so advanced, that even if she survived the weekend without succumbing to multi organ failure, her prognosis was still grim.
Here are some tender words from Bon Bon’s heartbroken foster mom: “We decided the best thing to do was let her be at peace. She has struggled so much and with no sign of improvement. I didn't want her to suffer anymore. I held her and she gave me a kiss on the cheek. It was very quick. She can finally be pain free. I am having her ashes returned and she can sit with my kitty Tux on the shelf, forever at rest.
Thanks to everyone who prayed for her. Her little body just couldn't handle anymore.”
And thank you, all of our loyal sponsors, for allowing us to get Bon Bon the love and medical attention she so truly deserved.
