I do want it understood that this is not the "easy way out" for me... it's damned hard and I've already been second-guessing myself 50 times, just typing this. I haven't made a final decision yet... but my heart is telling me to switch over to the oral meds and just let Mick enjoy his remaining time w/us... he so LOVES life... and I so LOVE him.
Christine, this is so touching. I have to believe he knows you are trying to help him, and apologizing for his fear or maybe assuring you he forgives you?On January 09 2008, 12:34 AM, amazincc wrote:And the killer was definitely the palm leaf he picked up in the parking lot on the way out of the vet office... he was still shaking, but he picked it up, carried it to my daughters car, jumped in the back seat w/me, nudged me - and gave it to me.
My heart absolutely went to pieces over that...

He is still bringing her a leaf every day even though he doesn't feel good and it makes her even sadder - that he is still thinking of her despite being so sick.

When Riggs was really sick last December they gave him an injected anti-nausea drug, they may not be able to do that for him, but you might want to ask. I also know that in people they sometimes put in a shunt so that you don't have to try and find a vein every time you have to do chemo, is that a possibility? Maybe that would allow them to make the visits shorter and possibly less stressful?
I know you're getting a million suggestions from every side, which is dizzying.
A few years ago, I lost my very young cat to liver failure. There were a few treatment options that would have prolonged his life and possibly saved him but they would have been extremely stressful for him and lasted for 6 months or longer. I completely understand what you are going through with that decision. It is not easy, there is no "easy" in this situation.
