The Thing You Hope You Never Hear
"You know, bone cancer is pretty common in these guys."
Yes. I know.
I've been telling myself about infected toenails, splinters and sore paws. This is the dog that once cost us $300 for an ultimate diagnosis of carpet burn on the footpad.
I still feel like I was looking at some other dog's x-ray. And that my dog will turn out to be fine and that he has more than 90 days to live.
There's an outside chance that for some unknown reason he just has a really bad infection. God, I hope so, but I fear not.
This morning I went for my surgery followup where the doctor told me he was able to free my left ovary from where it had adhered to my bowel and that I should have a lot less pain from now on.
And you know what, if I could go back and let them hack my guts to pieces and sew ovaries to bowels and kidneys and lace my innards with glass if it would save my dog I think I just might let them do it.
