Off to the vet this morning with Hamlet. He's developed a cough this week, and his paw is swollen. The vet felt thought that his lungs didn't sound as clear as they did last week. He has a little bit of a temperature, so we've put him on antibiotics. We both don't think that the cancer is encased in the tumor alone and think that it probably has spread elsewhere, but we've no way of knowing. But what I do know is that given everything, Hamlet really does to seem feel pretty good. He has a great appetite, he still wants to go on walks with us, so we're just going to ride the wave and be thankful for each day!
On the way home, I saw this little pedestrian crossing the road alone, where there was no crosswalk. I knew he would never make it across 4 lanes of traffic, a median and survive in a construction zone, so I stopped and picked him up and brought him home. This makes 4 terrapins I've moved off the road this year. This little guy was in a hurry to be on his way, so we let him go at the edge of our woods and of course wished him 'good luck!'
