Braun's mommy here...

Sick 2 my stomach typing this. Braun was lame last couple of days & I heard him yelp couple of times/holding his left front paw up. Ws diagnosed w/arthritis but I thought he must have broken/fractured his paw or something. Didn’t post anything about it b/c we just got the great news of his lump being fat & didn’t see the need to worry everyone over what I was sure was something small. Braun got xrays today. Got the call when I was @ grocery store & lost it. Literally sat o/floor w/phone t/my ear crying like a baby. Diagnosis: Bone cancer. I think vet said squamous cell carcinoma. It was apparently pretty far along & lameness is a symptom; a late one as is the case with my Braun Boy. I was told 6 months @ best. All we can really do is manage pain until it is time.Respiratory distress is another symptom we have 2 watch for b/c this type of cancer goes to the lungs. I have cried until I have no more tears. God is taking a good one from me…my sweet Braun Boy!

Braun, if Ernie George says that they're not ready for you at the Bridge, you stay with your Mom and give her lots of love.

We're sending you love and good thoughts.
