Thank you Sandy. I don't mean to sound like one of those MTV Sweet 16 kids who gets the Mercedes but wants the BMW. I know I've had him a good long time, and almost a whole year after the bloat miracle. But I look at him and think, other than the ticking time bomb, he's pretty darned healthy-more like 11 than almost 16! And that is why cancer sucks in animals and people.

Joanne-I forgot-I started him on the predisilone this morning. He's on Tylan powder-I wonder if that is "enough" of an antibiotic or if he needs something else. I'll ask about the B12 and they did say if I wanted to do fluids, that we could-did you do sub-cutaneous ones?

Jean, Kramer looks as handsome as ever. I'm sorry to hear that it might be quick, but I hope you, Kramer, and the Packistan can make it long and good.

to you and diamond-studded Kramer.

Big hugs to you both! I love the picture of the diamonds. Poor guy though - snow with a shaved tummy! brr!

I know you are not that 16 year old ungrateful kid and it's wonderful that you've had him for such a long and happy life, but I also totally understand that the longer we have them, the more they intertwine themselves with us and our hearts and the more we wish they would live forever. It sounds like you and Kramer are taking good care of each other now, as always, and we wish you guys the very very best.

King Kramer will reign in your house, your heart and all of ours forever through your sharing him with all of us...no matter how long his physical body keeps going. I can't imagine how hard this is on you.....

Yes - sub-cutaneous fluids. Kramer is starting from a much better place than Niko. By the time they figured out what was wrong - he really looked like crap.

This is the same as Basu. He bounced back but only for a couple of days. He enjoyed eating scrambled eggs with sweet potatoes. And my neighbor's sister's golden had this and stayed with her another 4 months! So hopefully Kramer will be like that. He had bad days but he also had really good days where he was running around like a puppy!

Enjoy the snow Kramer!

Thank you SO much for taking time to give us an update.

Tell us all you want, I do not know any of this....I know it can sometimes help to come here and get it all out. (I am SURE you know that).

I LOVE the pictures. He just looks so handsome. Trying to do the heavy sighs and hold back the tears and be as strong as he is being.

I just feel like he is going to hang with this for a while. He just looks to good and strong.

I just ache for you and what you are going through Jean. Your first born? That is to sad.
Take care of yourself. I am about ready to flee my responseabilities here and fly to NY and give you both a big hug!
Thinking and praying, because that is all I can do.

With much love, Kelly

Sending hugs out to you Jean, and many prayers for King Kramer. Kramer does Liberace! LOVE the diamonds pic. My heart goes out to you, Jean. This hurts. I do love that he dined at McD's and loved his burger (or fries? Far be it from me to assume to know what His Royal Hunkness dines on!). I just know that you will have the best support from your vet on this, Jean, in guiding any choices you may be making. I so wish that I could help. Can clotting agents help in a case like this, or does nobody do that with dogs? (I am one of those nuts who thinks "Why NOT have kidney transplants for cats?" etc.) Prayers and good vibes coming your way for you and Mr. Diamonds.
