It must have been the happiest day of their lives, and it did, but without some emotion. A couple got married in February, while their wedding was set for May. But the date was brought forward due to the serious illness suffered by the family dog. A canine that has only a few months to live, at best.
Estelle and Danny were impatiently awaiting this May 4, 2019. The couple, together for 4 years, had to live the happiest day of their life in the heart of spring. But they brought their union forward by more than 3 months. Thus, it was in February that it took place. At issue: the health of their dog , Bruce . The two thirty-year-olds thus passed their preparations after the numerous examinations of their animal, which led to enormous sadness.
A first successful operation
Let’s go back in time. In early December, Bruce was taken to the veterinary hospital . His owners are worried about his white gums and his tongue turned blue . He was first diagnosed with pleural effusion . An urgent situation well controlled by the veterinarians, who manage to evacuate the liquid accumulated in the lungs. However, this is only the beginning of the problems …
A new analysis puts a name on the evil that is eating Bruce from the inside out : cancer . A first operation would be able to determine the stage and the degree of aggressiveness of the tumor. A risky operation, with no certainty that Bruce will survive it. “ I was told to say goodbye to him ,” recalls Estelle , in remarks granted to Unilad. He survived the operation which lasted 7 hours . A first short-lived relief. Health professionals had to remove ribs from her in addition to her cancerous mass. And ten days later, another blow of the club.
Maximum 6 months to live, more likely 4
