    Such heartbreaking news. I'm so sorry.
    Every moment is a treasure and I know you and Joey will wring every one you can from the hands of time. ((((((Huge hugs))))))

    The gap between the day Fiver injured his leg to the day I had to let him go was one week. I hope you and Joey will have much, much more comfortable time for making memories together.
    Thinking of you. xxxxx

    He is eating a nice selection of herbs I got him & seems more himself this evening


    I'm glad he's liking his herbs and is feeling more settled.

    Thank You.

    His appetite is back to normal but he has been limping ever since he came back from the vet . He appears in good spirits - he likes all the extra pandering. managed to forage for him today - loads of cow parsley, some ash, willow, dandelions, sow thistle, geranium & blackthorn (he does prefer herbs over the free stuff though)

This wasn't news to me based on some email communication with Frances & just how it looks (to my eyes its not grown much though). He had 4 or 5 xrays & unfortunately the tumour has already grown in to his bone. His xrays showed some Spondylitis but nothing else sinister. Ruth didn't feel he was a good candidate for amputation & I totally respect her opinion.
    They were able to xray Joey with just sedation. Biopsy wasn't taken as it wouldn't change outcome & would have required full GA & messing my little soldier about more. Frances has seen 3-4 of these tumours in rabbits - they are not as innocuous as I was led to believe at first consult (not in rabbits anyway). She was consulted yesterday & being sent his xrays

    So we are just going to keep Joey for as long as he is happy & comfortable . He has been prescribed metacam & tramadol (to use if pain seems worse). At the moment he is unhappy, he has been out of sorts since getting back yesterday evening. As with 12 days ago, I think its just he is a sensitive sausage & hates the travel. This has given me more confidence in decision to not amputate (btw Graicee, Mimz mum...thanks for your kind thoughts - couldn't face going on that thread to reply).

    I don't think we'll have Joey long. He's had a good, long-ish & happy life so far & I don't want him living his last days with unmanaged pain or feeling sad
    i feel really ashamed i never saw this thread before. poor Joey. i don't know what to say but he will be in my thoughts always xxx
