Very Bad Night For Oscar

Recommended Posts

Oscar has deteriorated very quickly and there's no E-vet for me to use. The one we do have here is good for broken bones, etc, but doesn't have a good reputation for anything else.


I've been giving Oscar the max in pain meds but his breathing is very rapid and rough. He could barely do the stairs when he wanted to go pee at 1:30 this morning. He couldn't go back up them after so I went to get my pillow to sleep downstairs but he forced himself to go up slowly.


My DH, Mr, not-on-the-furniture-especially-on-the-bed told me to put Oscar's quilt on our bed so that he could come up and that he (DH) would go sleep on the couch. It took a while before Oscar did get up on the bed.


When this all started at the beginning of the summer, we were told it was either a nerve root compression or a nerve sheath tumour.


My 15-year-old is away working at camp and only comes home on Tuesday. Oscar was improving when he left two weeks ago.


Please think of my Oscar man. My heart is breaking right now and I'm so afraid of what the vet will say when we get there.
