Two weeks ago our young dog died suddenly of cancer. We took him to the vet thinking he had a sore leg and next thing he died in surgery to remove a burst tumour.
The last two weeks our other young dog who had given blood for his brother stopped eating properly. We thought he was grieving his friend as the events coincided. His lethergy and refusal to eat got bad after two weeks of decline we took him to the vet. He has cancer. Lymphoma stage three
yesterday we had to decide chemo or pallative care for him. Hardest decision.
i have gone numb and seemed to have shifted into get things done mode. I havent cried yet really. Just butterflies in my tummy.
i feel a need to protect my husband who is not coping. He takes antidepressants already, but yesterday he told me he was in the supermarket and just stopped. He felt like he wasn't real and nothing around him was and forgot where he was for a moment.
He wont stop crying which i think is good and normal but i was a bit concerned about this other event. He cant make any decisions so i have sort of taken over
id like to know what this is other episode was and if there is anything i can do to help him. I think my grief will come when its over in the mean time i need to help him.
