Sometimes I want to be selfish, and wish he did slow down so I could have had some warning, preparation for this day, but I knew that wasn't what was planned for Bandit, he came in this life with a bang, lived out his life a bang, and ended it the same way.


Definitely sounds like he went through life on his terms, with the great care and guidance you provided wub

You are welcome Joanne. I was going to pm you to let you know, when I first found out, but I was in shock of it all. Finally decided to just post it here.

I am still having a difficult time taking it all in. So sudden, for something I never thought would happen to Bandit.

Every once in awhile, a feeling creeps over me, making me wonder why I couldn't do more for him. I know I couldn't. The neuro called me Friday to see how I was doing, so nice of him, and we had a long talk, not the first one, but a good talk. When the MRI was first done, he was surprised to see how well Bandit had been doing up until that last week, due to the size of the tumor, one would think Bandit would have went downhill a lot sooner then he had.

Tumors are horrible things:(

The suddenness of the brain tumor, it really hits like a wall of bricks, and then you realize how well they have been doing for so long.

No second guessing...
