My Beautiful Buddy Has Brain Tumor
by Debra Denike
Yesterday morning I woke up to what I thought was my 9 yr. old Wheaton Terrier "Buddy" having a bad dream. I leaned over the bed to calm him and relized he was having a seizure.
I talked to him and put my hand on him for what seemed like forever. When it was over, he stood up with foam around his mouth and growled at me with teeth exposed. Then barked agressively at me. I called the Vet and was told that since he had just had a full blood workup and everything was fine, that it was a brain tumor.
24 hrs later he had another grand mal seizure and then walked in circles and banged into walls, while barking at my husband and I. Eventually he recognized us and settled down. He had such a lost look in his eyes. Later in the day he was back to himself again. Today so far he is happy and eating well.
I don't know how long we'll have left, but I won't let him suffer.
Another Vet has told me he could go anytime once the seizures increase in frequency. And she says we'll know when his time comes.
God Bless my Buddy for all the happiness he's brought into so many lives!
