I'm Sorry

But it's another woe is me post.

Smokey has cancer and in a best case scenario, I could have him for another year.

But let's back up to the hell that has been my life. Last weekend, Smokey had diarrhea that turned bloody. Now when I say bloody, I mean pools of blood. It looked like someone was murdered in my house there was so much blood. I called the vet and we went to the emergency clinic, they tossed it up to the meds he was on for the tumor and they sent us home with some medication. The next day was no better, in fact it was worse. I called the emergency clinic and told them that they needed to admit him. They did. Turned out he was hemorrhaging. He was suffering from something called HGE.

It was very scary. But I do have to say that he is doing much better and has made a nice recovery. Now we just have to go back to treating the cancer.

Needless to say I'm very sad, but I will treasure every moment I have with him just like I have treasured the last 11 years with him. I wish I had some digital pictures from when he was a puppy, he was the cutest puppy ever.

Anyway, hope you're all doing well.
