Big Tommy From 06

Looking at snapshots of our boy Big Tommy. He is very under the weather this week. I apologize in advance if I am slow to answer e-mails for the next few days. Yesterday was hectic as we went from our vet to a diagnostic clinic across town. They are unsure at this point what is causing fluid to build up in his stomach and chest. He was a strong happy playful dog last weekend and now he is pretty darn sick. Please keep your fingers crossed for our big headed boy. He is 10 and the Alpha of our little pack. He sings songs when you pet him just right and sing his name to him. I hope he is singing again soon.

Thanks Leigh. I am afraid it is going to end up being a cancer that they can not treat. That is what it is sounding like. They are always with us such a short time, and you never get better at dealing with loss, no matter how hard you try. I think this time I am going to stay in the angry stage for awhile. I have lost a Mother and 3 pets to cancer ,sort of tired of it. Sorry for the negativity dear readers. I know everyone over the age of 10 has been touched by cancer, I am not alone.

Thanks guys. The update is that it is a tumor on the heart, and they can not do anything about it. All we can do is let him live out his days and try to keep him comfortable. He is very tired, but at least a few times a day he does something that is like his old self. He still has some spirit left and the prednisone is helping make him feel better.
