Kuriko is dying

I knew it would come sooner or later... she's something like 17. But it's tearing my heart out anyways.

We went back to the vet. Her thyroid levels are normal now, which means the medicine is working, but now she's almost totally stopped eating. So the vet gave me some medicine that is supposed to make her hungry and taught me how to give her subcutaneous fluids (and I am a huge wimp with needles).

She'll eat a little bit, but she's weak and moves slowly. She can barely jump into and out of her box. She just seems so old now, so tired.

I don't know what's worse... the waiting, or the wreck I'll be when it finally happens.
