Well friends, my big, goofy, black and tan Gordon Setter has cancer. He collapsed Saturday night at home. We rushed him to CSU vet hospital emergency where they stabilized him.
We had a bit of false positive news yesterday that had us practically giddy with joy thinking he was going to be o.k. but they found a lot of tumors today.
Hellooooo emotional roller coaster.
Hopefully we can bring him home today and he'll spend a few weeks with us being happy and well loved before we call our vet to have him put to death at home. At least his last days will be with us and when it comes to the end, we have a vet who will come to our house to put him to sleep. That is where he is happiest. We don't know how long he has. Could be a week, a month... who knows.
I have lots of other, sunnier news to tell you but it might be a day or two.... I worked in our yard on Sunday doing a lot of manual labor trying to keep my mind off of my Booker. I think I may have hurt myself... I am so sore and painful with screaming muscles. It worked on Sunday to keep me from bawling my little eyes out only now I'm really sad AND phyically in a lot of pain. Hmmmm - maybe that wasn't such a good plan... heh, heh.
