More sad news

What a year 2010 has already been! Last Thursday when little man was admitted to the hospital, my husband took our 10 year old lab to the vet. He hadn't been eating really well the past few weeks. After he dropped off Cody at the vet he came back to the hospital to stay with little man and I.

Several hours later hubby received a phone call from the vet. The vet had put a microscopic camera in Cody's stomach. He said, "I'm sorry to have to tell you this but Cody has cancer. The cancer has spread to every organ in his body. It's not just on his liver, it's through his liver. It's everywhere. " My husband was absolutely crushed. My husband had bought Cody as a 6 week old puppy before I ever was in the picture. Cody was my husband's baby. They went everywhere together and did everything together. Before hubby and I married Cody slept in the house and was treated like a king. But because of my allergies and because he shed too much, he had to start staying outside after we were married. My family gave me a hard time about Cody. It wasn't that I didn't like him, it was just the shedding I didn't like.

On Saturday hubby decided to go pick up Cody from the vet and take him home for a few days. That way we could have a little bit more time with him before we had to put him down. Monday we had to put Cody down because he was in so much pain and wasn't eating. We were hoping to keep him at least till wednesday but putting him down was the best thing for him.

I have never seen hubby so upset. These past few weeks have been tough! But I will continue to say God is good!

  11. sorry to hear about Cody. :( We lost our lab, Coby, in 2006 to bone cancer. She was 13. It is sad losing a pet. Especially, when they are your children before you even consider having them. :) Heck...our powder room still has her pictures in it...and her box of ashes. :)

    I'll be thinking you and your family as you go through this sad time.

    Take care!
