I've been ugly crying since last night... Tying to make sense of what happened. Jeff came home to LT belly up and lifeless in the middle of her home. He dry docked her immediately and when I had gotten home it had been 4 hours and she still had no movement. I could barley understand what Jeff was saying he was so upset when I got home. We followed protocol last night and this am our loss has been confirmed. 😭 My little Turt..
LT you fighter!! Shell rot since before February, having previous pneumonia, drowning to more pneumonia, to recover and then this. She was by my side for over a month tending to her every need every few hours. We're confused, and hurt..hoping there was no suffering for this sweet girl. Her progression was outstanding, she was even starting to walk up her ramp and knock rocks off the dock for food last week. I sure will miss her quirkiness....the way she had to immediately hide when making eye contact. Rescuing isn't always unicorns and rainbows, sometimes you have to help them over to the rainbow bridge. Shes somewhere at peace with all our cat snakes in the animal kingdom. These precious animals, and reptiles are our whole world, our children. Please send her your loving thoughts and healing for our family. ❤️ #turtlemom #LT #grimfamilyzoo #redearedslider
