>Some potentially devastating news today. Simon may have cancer under his tongue. He’s been having a dirty face the past few days, which is totally out of character, and since yesterday has not been quite himself. So off to the vet today and in Friday for a biopsy. If it is cancer he only has a month or so left, she said. Pretty soon he won’t be able to eat, and that will be that. Whatever will I do without him. He’s been my constant companion for ten years. Trying not to react til I know for sure what is going on. I do think he’s in some pain, though, as he’s just laying around on his cushions or my bed, which is not like him at all. Poor baby. I don’t want him to suffer, but it would be really hard to lose him, if it comes to that.
