We got the lab results back tonight for Cisco. It’s cancer. It’s fast-acting, fast-killing cancer. He’s gone from relatively healthy (Cisco has always had his share of problems) to full-system meltdown in just barely a week it seems. We brought him home tonight and he’ll stay with us through the weekend. The vet barely even offered treatment because of Cisco’s age. Our vet – who is near and dear to us – had a Boston Terrier he had to put to sleep last week because of the same cancer. So we trust him when he says that Cisco is not a good candidate for treatment. We know he’s not anyway.
So, we’ll spend the weekend with him. And Monday, I guess, depending on how he’s doing, we’ll take him to the vet for the last time. He’s so pitiful and sick, but he’s still Cisco so we’ll spend the next few days trying to say goodbye.
