Air is black. Lungs are supposed to be full of air. Mushroom’s lungs are full of badness and tumors. The little white circles you can see? Tumors. My heart is breaking.
He’s been coughing for a little while. We were treating him as kennel cough with antibiotics and a steroid to help with inflammation. The cough improved somewhat, but his breathing has continued to be labored. Last night he didn’t want to walk up the steps. This morning he didn’t want to eat until I put cheese in his food. Mushroom lives for food. That he didn’t want to eat was a bad bad sign.
So we took xrays and there’s really nothing to be done but keep him as comfortable as possible with cough medication and steroids. A week, maybe two. And that’s all I get with my sweet sweet boy who has never wanted anything but to be good.
It’s just not fair.
