Tuck's liver mass is a carcinoma. He isn't in pain, but it's inoperable. It could be weeks or days, the vet says, if his bile duct gets blocked by the tumor.
So we're taking it day by day. I appreciate every hour I have with him, and while he sleeps most of the time, when he's awake he's still my boy and he brightens up when I show him his favorite baby, a raggedy old stuffed squirrel he has always adored.
Yesterday I came across a woman with a Havanese who reminded me so much of Tuck as a baby that I almost started crying in public. She understood completely and let me hold him and pet him.
I go back and forth between thinking I won't get another dog and wanting to get one right now, as a comfort to Tuck, and me, and the rest of the family. I check the rescue sites thinking that there might be a Havanese is need of a home right now, but so far without success. Which is, of course, a good thing. Every dog deserves a loving home.
I'm babbling. Back to try to get some work done.
