Well, Diego had his stitches removed this morning. Everything appeared to be as well as could be expected. His reconstructive surgery appears to be healing well. He seemed to have his curiosity and energy that he has had for the last few days. One concern though was that he is still losing weight despite his apparent increase in appetite. I also picked up copies of the lab results that have been taken since this started and posted them in his case files folder.

After I got home from work this evening though it has been a different story entirely. My wife said he hadn't been up at all today and although she has gotten him up several times and tried he is refusing to eat or drink. I did manage to get him up and coax him into eating a good bowl of duck soup and drink some water. He has suddenly become lethargic and reclusive. Although this morning at the vet his temperature was normal to me, this evening he feels unusually warm and his breathing is obviously labored.

I would welcome any suggestions anyone may have if you are able to see anything from the lab work that may indicate something else. However, with everything he has been through in the last 3 weeks I am not going to put him through a lot. We have no way of knowing just where this cancer may be in his system and exploring is not an option. His remaining quality of life is my only concern at this point.

Sure, I'm hoping for a miracle and that by my getting him to eat and drink this evening he could suddenly get up and be the happy go lucky fuzzy he was 3 weeks ago. But in reality I am at the point that I'm afraid that in the morning when I get up to open their cage and feed them that I will find he has left us.
