He had a bleed on a tumor/tumors that culminated this past Sunday evening. I think it started bleeding before we had our non-chemo visit this past Thursday. He was acting very lazy and Sunday we took him for a walk (together - thank God) and he collapsed 4 houses away. SU was able to carry him back for 2 houses then had to put him down. He managed to walk the remainder on his own and then came in and went in his cubby and breathing was very low, inside of gums white and inside eyelids so we knew he was going through a bleed.
I did not sleep much Sunday night and Monday am he was much improved. He is again much improved today.
I think we have decided that whether he leaves today or in six months we are going to be just as devastated either way. I don't want to put him under anymore duress. When the bleeds occur he just gets tired and does not hurt. For him if it is going to go wrong medically it does (from past experience) so going the chemo route I don't think is going to work....just more stuff to go wrong that is wrong already.
PS: I just looked on the sofa and he is wheels up with SU - that is a good sight to see!
