Fawkes went to the Bridge today at about 6:30pm.

Dr. Kate said that he did not rip himself open - the tumors were dying & basically rotting inside him, they needed to drain, but had no where to go, so it created its own path.

She said we could probably remove the tumors and ease his breathing difficulty, but she had no idea of whether the cancer would be aggravated by the surgery to do so. She also didn't know if his wound would heal, given that he is on immunosuppressants.

I just felt like I would be putting him through more pain just because I didn't want to say goodbye.

We visited before he went, then he just went to sleep in my hand.

Dr. Kate did a necropsy this evening & is sending samples out to a national lab that deals with exotics more than the local labs.

She has agreed to post Fawkes' treatment, and the results of his necropsy on VIN.

Fawkes will be cremated, I still don't know what I'm going to do with his ashes.

Thank you everyone for being here with me through all this, this is so hard...

I'm so sorry. At least he won't be in pain...It sounded liek a tough decision..But he had already gone through so much, I know you made the right choice for him. hug2 hug2 hug2 Sometimes theres just nothing more we can do without causeing more pain. You should be happy knowing that he isn't in pain anymore, I know I would be. I think now you need to concentrate on yourself, I know how stressful it can be. Thank you for helping him all that you did, your a great mommy! heart

Gina, I know that everyone of us here on GC is crying with you tonight. It was like Fawkes belonged to all of us. We're all here for you.

I have to tell you that I think you're alot braver than I could ever be and you have earned my respect.

We love you Gina.

If you want to know what a person is like, watch how he treats others.

You'll never know what the outcome is if you don't step up and try.

If we never loved, then maybe we would never feel pain. Love anyway. It's worth it.

Gina, I will light a candle to celebrate Fawkes and the love he gave. My heart and prayers go out to you. You gave him the ultimate gift of love, to take away his pain. A pain, I know all too well, you will now carry in your heart. I pray the wonderful memories of your time together will soon help you to smile through your tears.

Soar high, Fawkes, on your new wings of gold. I know you will be surrounded by love at the bridge, just as you were here. We will do our best to take care of your mom. God bless and Godspeed.

Gina,

I am sorry to hear about Fawkes. You had a terrible decision to make and you made it out of love for him.

May your memories of him comfort you in the days to come.

Fawkes if gliding healthy and free over the Rainbow Bridge.

Fawkes time here was short but he was given an eternity of love by you.
I'm crying with you, remembering Fawkes and your struggles, and remembering my own Dawn and Winken.

Gina, yours is a story of true love and dedication for a pet turned family member!!! Know that you went above and beyond what most humans would do for each other! Much less a pet. As a Nurse, I see people with the same condition that are left to die alone, with no loved ones to comfort and care. You are a truly special person!!!! I am in tears right now, and I don't even know you.

Sleep easy little man... you will be missed...

Thank you everyone - without your support, I don't know if I would have been able to do any of this. (((HUGS)))

Now I worry for his remaining family - Zoe had JUST stopped overgrooming, hopefully she will be okay with Cino & Seti. I also worry about Cino, these last few days, he was always with dad, each time I would go check on them - I think he knew something was wrong.

There was no barking or calling last night, but I also noticed that that cage did not eat all of their mealies last night, which is very weird because they always finish their mealies within 30 minutes of me putting them in there. Of course, I forgot last night when I counted them, not to put Fawkes' portion in there - but I know Fawkes didn't touch mealies for at least a few weeks before he passed, so it shouldn't have made a difference.

I am going to continue putting the Immuny II & Be Happy herbals in their Priscilla's mix. The Immuny II is also supposed to act as a preventative, so that hopefully I won't see this in Fawkes' brother, nephew, or sons.

To John & Bo, Jen, Jaimee, & Michelle - Please be vigilant in checking for lumps on Fawkes' daughters, neices, and nephews.

If, God forbid, lymphoma turns up - I highly recommend the Elspar treatment right off the bat. I think this may have made the difference with Fawkes & would perhaps not have let him get to such a weak state. Dr. Kate believed the treatment was working, I just felt Fawkes was too weakened & having too many problems to continue with it.

Oh Gina, I am so sorry. I know that must have been such a hard decision to make. I know Fawkes is waiting for you, fully healed, over the bridge.

Dear Gina, I tried to wait til I stopped sobbing to write this but the tears won't stop. I am so very very sorry to know that sweet little Fawkes lost his battle. I hoped and prayed so hard. If love and hopes could have saved him, he would be here still, healthy and whole, because everyone here loves and grieves for him. Know that your sharing your experience may one day, save the life of other gliders. That will be Fawkes legacy. He has not died in vain.
