It is so hard though. I know Buddy is sound in mind. He will never give up. I just hate to have to think I am the one to decide for his own good. Should I keep him going while his body says no but his mind says yes?
I'm sorry, but I am just looking for something to make me feel better in thinking on what Buddy needs since I know he will be fighting until the end. I know he will never give up. I just don't want him to be suffering in his quest.
After Buddy's trip to the vet today, we are attacking the problems in a different way. Different food, vitamins, meds and, yes, the feeding tube.
Buddy was very fiesty at the vet today. He wants to live and we are going to damn well in doing that! He has sores on his butt that need attention to now, and he sure hates his treatment of that, but as long as he is fighting that too, I am happy.
Tonights feeding was very chaotic with all the preperations and Shomie sticking her nose in to see what was going on. Buddy ended up throwing up all his food. However, when we get the routine down, I am thinking it will work out for now.
Buddy wants to live and I am going to do whatever I can for that.
We go back to the vet on Monday.
Glad you have decided to keep fighting since Buddy has too. You tell him we'll be back in August to see him, so hang in there.
And we can come and get nosy Shomie too, if you want. Dave sorta likes her. I guess cause she didn't bark at him like she did me.
