Like a mother knows her child better than anyone.... you will know when it the "right" time to let him go. If it's not now.... fight for him! At least you wont be asking yourself everyday IF you did the right thing. Follow your gut...not your heart, but your gut.

Thanks! I'm really considering acupuncture as long as we make it that far.
Max has another appointment at 9 so I'll bring that up as well as ask the doc the hard questions. Today one family member was laying the guilt trip on me heavy about being selfish and not just helping him go without even trying to see if he could recover, because part of the time the pain has been so bad.
Several others around me seem to think I can't understand that he's old and could die at any moment so they've been telling me how he could drop dead even when he was fine. Me, I say what's wrong with being optimistic? After all, there were those who told me to put him down when he was diagnosed as epileptic 15 years ago, you know, because he couldn't have a good life.
Sorry if I'm being morose. I think I've had about three hours sleep in two days. It's just all frustrating, stressful and heartbreaking.
My boy is sleeping right now. The Buprenex from 3 a.m. is still working.
Anna, Max and Cocoa
