Vana passed away last night. In the beginning of February, the vet found cancer in her lymph nodes that had metastitized from her intestines. She was on a course of treatment, but after many weeks of it, the cancer persisted and was still in her blood. My Mom took the most amazing care of her. She went to great lengths to get her to eat and even got her to gain some weight in recent weeks. Unfortunately, yesterday afternoon it seems that she probably had a stroke. She died peacefully in the night in my mother's arms. I am so sad and have so much regret that I wasn't there with her and that I am so far away, but I know she was in very capable, loving hands. I have no doubt that she was loved by everyone who knew her. She was a sweetheart. I will miss her terribly.
