Well, the news isn't good at all. Doc has a 4x4x4 cm right atrial mass (inside his heart). Without a biospy, the cardiologist can say he's 99.9% sure it's a hemangiosarcoma, and even in the 1% off chance it's benign, it's inoperable anyway.

Doc is twelve. If he was, let's say 4 or 5 years old, I'd feel ripped off by the powers that be. He and I have had a good life together and we still have some time left together before he let's me know it's time for the last goodbye. Also, another way to look at the situation? Let's say the cardiologist said "this cancer is treatable, we do a surgery, we do radiation, chemo, etc" and of course you're left sitting there having to make a really tough decision.

My decision was made for me on the spot once you hear the word "inoperable". I do a daily monitioring of his heart and respiratory resting rate and that will tell me exactly how far along the disease is progresssing. His abdomen was tapped and relieved of the fluid build up (3 liters were removed, talk about a build up!) and he's back to his chipper self, for now. I'm smothering him with love & attention, I think he thinks he has already died and gone to heaven.

Here's a pic "grandma" took of us the day after he got his belly drained, he felt sooo much better after that procedure! I love my little buddy.

That is a beautiful photo... he is a lovely looking dog. I'm so sorry that the news was bad... my heart goes out to you. I'm sure if he could talk, he'd say he's had a great life, and it's all thanks to you.

Kymmie I just saw this thread. I am so sorry that you got less then good news. Regardless of how old they are when the time comes, it isn't old enough. Give that darling boy a hug from his friends here in Wisconsin. Spoil him Rotten and listen to his whispers. He will tell you when the Angels are calling him.

He is a beautiful boy and I think the Picture of the two of you together is frame worthy. There is so much emotion on both of your faces. Bless you both.

Thanks, gals. It's great that I know you are here for me to vent my sadness. I love the pic, it's the first time my mom has ever been able to figure out how to take a good picture, and the only pic I have of just the two of us.
I had to have one of the two of us before it's time to say goodbye. I look at the pic and think, Aww. Then I look at the pic and think about him being gone and my eyes start burning. I love my little buddy so much.

Me too! (except the contacts part).

And that is a very nice picture...but it has kind of a sad, melancholy feel to it. Your mom really caught the emotion.
