She wasn't even able to blink effectively; the vet had to put moistening drops in her eyes. She has lost another six tenths of a pound since the 29th and was only 4.4 pounds today.
With no other options available to her, no improvement in her condition and no way to ease her suffering we did the only thing we thought we could and had her put to sleep. We buried her in my parents' rose garden this evening.
Thanks everyone for your thoughts and vibes. I know we did everything we could for her and although I'm OK with it I REALLY miss her a LOT.
Boy, this is hard.
