I want to start off by saying that our 6yr old Great Dane Kita was our life. She grew up with our little ones and protected not only them but us too. We took her to the beach with us not knowing she was sick because our pet sitter had backed out. It was the best blessing ever. Because 9 days from the day we went to the beach our favorite girl would be gone. We noticed she wasn’t eating as much but just put that to the trip etc. When we got back it was a whole different story. She had completely stopped eating and had trouble moving. We took her to emergency on Tuesday the 18th of July.

We were told she had high calcium levels. They put her on iv monitored her overnight ran billions of tests and only on Wednesday we were told they need to do a biopsy but she could come home and it’s probably not good news. Kita came home Wednesday and we got the news Thursday that she had extremely aggressive cancer (lymphoma).  I just about died. I felt empty and lost I couldn’t believe this. I couldn’t stand putting her through chemo and radiation when it was so aggressive it wouldn’t have helped and I was being selfish. We then were referred to Compassionate care because we didn’t want our baby resting in an unfamiliar place without us her family. This was the BEST decision I EVER made!!! I cannot even begin to explain to you how amazing this place is. From the receptionist to the amazing Dr Jessika. Dr Jessika is a whole other story. Wow is this an amazing woman.

From the moment she pulled up to our home I instantly felt the warmest feeling and connection to her. I grabbed her hand immediately and we walked to where Kita would be buried. She was more than happy to do this. She is truly an angel. She came in, gave us time, was patient, and explained everything to us and our 3 children ages 9, 7 & 5. This woman gave us so much peace it’s to the point no words can describe. My children said their goodbyes and went to the bedroom with my husband. I held my sweet girl and spoke softly to her while she passed in my arms. Dr Jessika was my angel that night and will continue to be my angel. I have soooo much love for her and what she does. She was exactly what I needed at this time.

We asked her to stay with us just for a bit because we had a connection to her. A connection I cannot explain. I don’t care if you think I’m crazy but I swear I saw my Kita’s eyes in hers when I looked at her. I couldn’t help but grab her and sob uncontrollably. And this amazing angel of mine held me up and comforted me. I am amazed at her strength and kindness during this time. I will NEVER EVER forget what Dr Jessika did for me and my family. I am forever indebted to her. My heart is so full of love for her. I thank you all so much. Words can NEVER EXPRESS my gratitude for your kindness and your love!!! I am deeply appreciative of everything. The Greens love you beyond words.
