It has been a difficult week with Sam. The high hopes that I had for the prednisone to make a difference for him has been dashed because it made him very, very sick. We took Sam off of all the medications to give his stomach a break, and have restarted everything again this morning. The tumor continues to grow and is affecting his eye even more this morning than yesterday. The picture below was taken on Monday and seeing it today, reminds me of that. I know that Sam's time with us is nearing its end. But we all know that sometimes when we think that, it may not be.
