Default Grieving pet mom

Hi...Im brand new here. Im looking for support or encouragement about my sweet Lily's condition. She is a 5 yr old mini doxie....the joy of my lonely life since she was six weeks old. Yesterday her back legs stopped working during our morning walk...I had to carry her home. Thru the rest of the day she didnt even attempt to get up and refused food or water. When I picked her up, her backlegs just dangled...I got her to the vet this AM and after exam, he cooly said she needs to be put down and surgery would be a waste of money. Since I said I was not emotionally able to have her euthanized today, he gave her 3 days worth of steroids, antibiotics and pain RX. ....she recieved a dexamethasone inj. and ampicillin inj too.He said if she has not improved in 3 days she needs to be put down. I am horrified and hurting, cant stop crying...she is my best friend. Has anyone out there experienced a similar situation that had a positive ending?? How can I possibly do this? She is all I have in this world. Please?
