Audrey Vaught, 12/08/03 - 01/09/17

At age 5 Audrey was diagnosed with immune mediated thrombocytopenia (ITP)  but after a 8 days in the hospital  and several blood transfusions finally got to bring her home.  At age 10 the platelet disorder returned after having dental work done and spent 2 1/2 weeks at blue pearl animal  hospital  in Louisville Kentucky. We never gave up and I finally got to bring my baby girl back home once again.  She's a fighter after surviving two episodes especially at age 10. Three years passed and for the most part she was doing  very well until on December 30, 2016 she was diagnosed with chronic renal failure. Started the subcutaneous IV fluid treatments at the hospital and her labs did improve so I thought that I might get some more time with my baby girl.  However, after bringing her home for a few days she began to develop edema in her abdomen and begin to show very little interest in food.  On Monday morning as I got her ready to take her back to the animal hospital I took a picture of her wrapped in a new blanket that her aunt Sandy gave her.   I cried as I knew that I probably would not be bringing her back home as I could tell she was getting weaker everyday.  We arrived at the hospital and after more labs and another ultrasound things had gotten worse.  It was obvious that we had no more options and no more hope and I just couldn't take her home when she wasn't eating and so lethargic. So at 6:15 PM on January 9th, 2017 she passed peacefully in my arms as I whispered into her ear her favorite thing " Audrey go bye bye" and "Audrey go for a ride."   It was only a few short moments that I could feel her body become lifeless as I held her and cried.  After 13 years and one month we took our last ride together.
RIP Audrey, daddy ❤'s you! My life will never be the same.
