i came home yesterday to find my precious Tabitha trying to walk on very wobbly legs. She'd been fine when i left the house that morning. When i picked her up she cried. I got her to the vets straightaway and she felt a lump in Tabs stomach so I had to leave her there overnight and they are due to xray her an hour from now. Tab had a malignant tumor removed from her foot in jan but it was completely removed and wasn't the type to have secondaries. I feel so bad for putting her through this again. She's sixteen now and i don't want her to be in any pain. The vet is going to ring me with the findings and discuss options whilst Tab is still under anaesthetic. I have a horrible feeling i'm going to have to agree to her being put to sleep. I so wanted to be there with her when it happened but it would be cruel to wake her up just to give me time to get there wouldn't it? I know i'm imagining the worst case scenario and she did still look quite bright yesterday but I'm sick with worry. I thought i'd be prepared for this but it's just happened so suddenly.
