Poor Duncan!!

At 6.30 this morning he had 2 big sneezes... I jumped out of bed and there was blood EVERYWHERE!!! I spent the next hour scrubbing it out of the carpet, off the walls and closet doors, off the bedspread... Later today I have to give him a bath, because its also all in his coat (on his chest and front paws)

Poor little guy!

And he's been very lethargic this morning ~ I'd bet his white count is in the cellar.

But he remains my sweet, loving little baby boy!!

5.29 pm Update ~

Duncan has had 2 more hemorrhages this afternoon. The part that scares me the most is that all the blood is coming from his left nare ~ the side OPPOSITE his original tumor. Could the tumor be spreading?? I talked with Dr. Sandy this afternoon; we're going to call Dr. Fidel(the oncology specialist @ WSU) tomorrow morning. I know they told us to expect some bleeding from his nose; maybe I'm just being paranoid...

So hard to separate 'mom' from nurse... and bless Dr. Sandy's heart! She is endlessly kind and patient with me!!
