The Long and Bumpy Road....
Well....I think a great name for a new Super Rollercoaster ride with all kinds of ups, downs, twists & turns should be, "THE RAZZLEMEISTER".
Steve had taken Razzle for his appointment this morning and I called during and after to find out everything that was going on. He told me all the good news.
He didn't tell me the bad news until I got home.
Being the sweet, caring boyfriend that he is, he didn't want to upset me at work. But when I got home he told me that during Razzle's X-ray this morning, another tumor was found. It most likely is exactly the same kind of "harmless" lump that we just had removed last month. The problem is, Razzle's heart could not handle another surgery, so there is nothing we can do except wait...and hope for the best. The last tumor was rather aggressive and had grown quickly. It also had started to "invade" some important organs. So...we have to hope this is a slow growing tumor. Or, let's get crazy for a moment and hope that it just GOES AWAY!!
I spent a lot of time with Razzle tonight, much to his chagrin. All he wanted to do was squrim away! But he's eating, he's active, he has so much life. His X-rays showed that even the congestion in his lungs has improved. Why this tumor?!? We are trying an antioxidant mixture that I will give to Razzle once a day in hopes that it will dissolve or at least greatly slow down this tumor. I'm not ready to give up on him yet, and apparently, neither is he.
