R.I.P. ratty baby

My rat had been sick for about a week now. She had R.I. it came on really sudden, one morning i got up and she was coughing/wheezing really bad. We left it for a day, then took her to the vet. He gave her an antibiotic shot, and some baytril for me to give her. She got a little better over the next few days, then she went downhill again.
we took her to the vet a few days ago, she had a steroid shot and some food to feed her.
the past few days she hadnt been able to walk properly, she'd fall over, out of bed and stuff... She hadnt been eating so i had to give her liquidised "sick kitty" food, to give her a boost. she didnt like eating it so i had to force feed her.
Today i knew it was her last day, i aactually wanted her to die, i knew she was suffering. She was lying on the floor of her cage, in an awkward position so i moved her, and left her for 5 minutes. When i went back, she had died.

i know she didnt die just from the R.I. her breathing had gotten so much better.... i just dont know what happened..
i just wanted to talk about it i guess... i feel so awful..
oh yes! i may be wierd... but this wierdo comes with new, improved Live Journal action!
