Marx Update 6/15/10


Recommended Posts

Sorry I haven't posted sooner with an update on Marx, here goes:

 

Dr. Couto emailed back and said Marx's xrays (chest & abdomen) look fine (thank goodness!). He suggested chemo and another surgery to remove the remainder of the area that had unclean margins. DH and I were tossing around the idea of another surgery, we didn't want to do chemo......well, yesterday everything changed :( Another mass has shown itself as have multiple red spots that will turn into masses that look like blood blisters on his left side. I called a dear friend Amanda (Guinessthegreyt here on GT) to vent and have an outsider listen, and offer input on the situation. DH and I talked about things and have decided that we will not subject Marx to another surgery or surgeries, or chemo. I know others may not agree with this decision but it's what we feel is right for our beloved Marx.

 

He is still his same old man self, not acting any differently. We will take things day to day and enjoy whatever time Marx will bless us with presence, of course that means extra spoiling and lovins. :blush

 

 

So my GT friends please keep Marx in your prayers and pray we have the strength to continue to make the right decisions for him and not be selfish.

Praying for all the missing greys!

Of course you will make the right decisions. It will hurt like hell. But you'll do it out of love. :bighug

Continued prayers for Max and prayers for you and DH to have the strength to make the right decision for all of you. Does not matter whether other people agree or disagree about your decision, it is your decision and whatever decision you makes it comes from the heart. Thoughts of all of you right now!

Sometimes the most loving decisions turn out to be the hardest.:grouphug:grouphug

So strange not living in Atty World. I was a love struck handmaiden to your every whim.

Ain't that the truth!

 

And regarding what others think about your decision Karen, I've never known you to care what other people think about you, now sure isn't the time to start. Only you and The Saint know what is best for your pups. ;)

You know your dog, and you know what's right for him, it's not for anyone else to judge IMO. I hope you have lots more happy times together, sending you both loads of hugs.
