…sometimes making lemonade will not cut it!
Our worst nightmare came true last Thursday night when we arrived home to Jordan clenching his stomach in pain again. We took him straight to emergency where he had his previous operation and they took him in to run extensive tests and monitor him overnight. His liver was inflamed but they knew there was more to it so the next day he was referred to the specialist who looked after him after his operation and they ran more tests.
The news confirmed was not what we wanted to hear or expected to ever hear. Our boy has prostate cancer and it is bad. The vet called me on Friday while I was at work to let me know. How I kept it together all day is beyond me. I was numb.
When we picked him that afternoon, there was more bad news. Apart from the issues with the liver his adrenal gland is 4 times the size it should be. If operated on a rupture can occur on the main artery killing him on the table.
Any animal owner knows that the time you have with is short and we knew the day would come but not like this. Our days a very limited with him right now but we wont know exactly how long until our consult with the specialist on Thursday to plan our attack.
Right now we are savouring every precious moment with our boy. If you love your animals make sure you so show them how much you care because at any moment they can be taken away from you.
