Not for me. Or Kenton. So that’s good, and I am thankful for that.
Any animal owner knows that it hits just as hard when your pet is sick. He doesn’t understand what the problem is, and can’t make decisions, so you have to do the best you can for your pet.
Tomorrow it’s Fitz’ turn at chemo again. He is still doing well, few side effects other than feeling a bit under the weather on “the day”. His lymph nodes are much less swollen, and the vet says he is responding well.
I hasten to add – we are not looking for him to be cured. Cures can and do happen, but vets don’t give you that expectation. It’s quality of life for as long as it makes sense.
To add to the mix, Milo is also seeing the vet. He has an ulcerated lump on his testicle, and the vet is thinking it could be a mast cell tumour. Boxers are prone to them, so she wants to remove it and examine the cells.
Let’s hope she’s wrong.
