Mackie update 😩 Doc tells us “ Mackie is suffering, he has a really aggressive cancer that is affecting his eye, ear and face to the point that he can’t see or hear from that side. He also has a really serious condition affecting the protein in his body called protein loosing enteropathy. This condition is extremely difficult to manage and can be fatal. His increased and over the top WBC with his mass indicates leukemia/lymphoma which is probably the tumor on his face 😩 Sadly it has spread and surgery is not an option 😩 “

All of that being said, we have asked the good Doc if we can send him home for a day or two or...so that he can know and feel love and she said “yes” however she also told us no more then 2-3 days as he is suffering. We will send him home with pain relief meds to keep him comfortable ❤️ We have the most amazing and loving foster in place and Mackie will be heading home tonight ❤️ Whether it is for an hour, a day or a week, Mackie is going to know love , that he is not alone, that his life matters AND, most importantly, he will have a home right up to the end to call his very own ❤️ tw, LNPB
