Well, we have an answer to our sweet little Finnegan's Eating Problem, and it's not good.
We had x-rays and more bloodwork done. It seems our little guy has a huge massive tumor in his stomach, and it's probably on the spleen too. There isn't much room for food anymore. Not a good prospect for surgery. The prognosis is grim. He is only seven years old. It breaks our hearts.
We will do what we can to keep him comfortable, and our final act of love will be done at home with a visiting vet.
The way he runs and and plays with Binney, you would never know. He can be spurred into active fun, but then he goes to rest afterwards. This was filmed tonight:
That is all I can say
without bursting into tears
as I type.
On to other things---
We had a delightful week of time with the grandkids who isolated and tested negative to spend time with us. I will do a post about that later....
Well, seven of our eight special order replacement windows came in. The shipping company or the store lost one somewhere along the way. It was one of the two dining room windows. If they can't find it, they will have to reorder it. That means another 6-8 weeks.
We were up at 5:30 a.m. on a frosty cold morning... and went up to the Marinette Menards at 6 a.m. to pick them up at the special order door before any other people were around. We got 5 on the trailer and 2 in the back of the Saturn. Then we came home by 7 a.m. and popped back into bed for a while. Brrrrrrr~!
We decided the master bathroom window was the first candidate to get replacement. With all of the air leaks, the moisture builds up between the main window single pane glass and the makeshift aluminum storm window. When the temps get below 32, this window is all frosted up for the rest of the winter.
It sure made a difference
and looks much lighter and brighter.
Tomorrow... the Master Bedroom window, that is the next in order of severity which is needing replacement. It will make a huge difference in our heating and air conditioning costs as well.
As for tonight, I am going to go and hug my dogs...
