    But I still like to keep everyone up to date.

    Yesterday, maybe two hours before work, I was checking up on Kana and I noticed she'd lost obscene amounts of weight. I frantically called vets, checking to see if they did reptiles, but no one did. I called my boss, freaking out, saying I needed to keep an eye on her and bring her to the store, but that was an absolute no. I finally got a number for a vet in West Chester and Matt said he'd take me there this morning.
    My appointment was at 11:45. I went there expecting the worst and the worst is what I got. She had a 3" abscess in her kidney which could only be removed by surgery. I made one of the hardest decisions of my entire life and had her put to sleep. Usually they do two shots: a sedative and then the final dose. The doctor gave her the first one and that was too much for her body. She was too weak and she died in my hands. I cried my eyes out and held her against my body.

    This was my little girl. It would have been three years in October. She was the cutest little baby. She was bright yellow when I got her and fit into the palm of my hand. She's my angel. My heart hurt so much to see her in this condition and it was beyond difficult to let her go, but she'll be up there with my mom.

    Thanks for reading, guys. It means alot.

    That's so sad, Hannah! You must be heart-broken. I'm so sorry. If something like that happened to my BP Monty, I'd be crushed.
    Take care of yourself. It'll take time.

    Sorry for your loss, she was beautiful and at least you have some very nice pictures to keep of her. If she was that week she probably wouldn't have survived the surgery.
