Here is a beautiful poem to help you make the right choice...

If it should be that I grow weak,
And pain should keep me from my sleep,
Then you must do what must be done,
For this last battle can not be won.
You will be sad, I understand,
Don’t let your grief then stay your hand.
For this day more than all the rest,
Your love for me will stand the test.
We’ve had so many happy years-
What is to come can hold no fears.
You’d not want me to suffer so,
The time has come, so let me go.
Take me where my needs they’ll tend
And please stay with me til the end.
Hold me firm and speak to me,
Until my eyes no longer see.
I know in time that you will see,
The kindness that you did for me.
Although my tail its last has waved
From pain and suffering I’ve been saved.
Please do not grieve - it must be you
Who has this painful thing to do.
We’ve been so close, we two, these years-
Don’t let your heart hold back it’s tears.
