My heart breaks for you and Gus. You'll know the right decision to make, I know you're torn on what to do right now whether to try the specialist or not. But like Jessegirl said, take one day at a time. Sending prayers and hugs to you both.

Gus is still with me. It's been rough this past week and and I would sworn Friday/Saturday that he would not still be here. However, he seemed to perk up a little yesterday, not much, but enough to me, that it was a sign that it's not his time yet. Sugar is off the meter, but that is not surprising given he's not eaten much and what he has eaten is pure junk carbs, and unable to potty much even though he's drinking a lot when I carry him to his water bowl every 1-2 hours. But, he did stand and take a few steps outdoors yesterday and today. We went to the vet today to see if we what we could for him, if anything. My vet was sick and worked us in before she was going home sick. So, we didn't take time to do bloodwork or any tests. Just gave him subQ fluids, injection of pain different stronger antibiotic, and pain meds, and sent more meds home. We're treating as though pancreatitis right now (hip tumor aside). Anyway,my hopes is that he begins to eat more and gains some strength. We're just taking it a day at a time, and trying to stay comfortable. Prayers for the both of us as we continue on his journey with us for however long that will be.
