Caesar needs prayers. Our big white happy go lucky boy is not doing well. He has been having some health issues and slowing down more and more. Then I found a lump on his side. We called and made an appointment with the vet for this Thursday.
For the past few days he has not been eating or drinking much at all and yesterday we could not stop shaking. We called the vet last night when this was happening and were told that we would have to call the vet school and they would just observe him overnight and then do something in the morning. We kept him home with us so that he would be comfortable and feel safe (and not be locked in a cage where he would freak out) and got an appointment for later today (Wednesday).
It was a rough night for him, myself and for Jeff who had to go to work and was worried about him all night long. This morning Caesar seems better and asked to go outside to lay in the sun. This is a huge improvement over last night when he could barely move his hind end. He is out there now enjoying the outdoors and will be checked out later today by the vet.
Not going to lie...I am just barely holding it together at this point. We lost a beloved dog, Brandi, in the past to cancer and I am so afraid that Caesar may have it too. We also just lost our Doofy cat suddenly and I am still mourning his death. Aunt Norma next door is not doing well at all and her family is all coming to see her before it is too late. My own Josh and Lauren are making the trip home Sunday to see her too and Jaysn and Rachel are coming over Saturday to see her. Chris has been coming over as much as he can. One of her sons shared with me that he would be surprised if she made it to the end of this month. So heartbreaking. I'm spending a lot of time with her and Uncle Bob trying to be a support to them and help them out as much as I can.
Please keep everyone in your prayers...this is a rough time for us all. Thank you.
