Rosebud and Slack would make cute babies, even if they had to adopt.

The tumor in Maddie's lip has continue to enlarge and become infected with a nasty, smelly drainage. I took her to the vet last week, expecting that he'd tell me the same thing- I was correct.

She has still been relatively active- we walk every day, and she's eating relatively normally, but has lost weight of late. Still, though she hasn't reached the point of not being able to mobilize or eat/drink, I can't imagine that this horrible growth isn't affecting her quality of life. So I made the very difficult choice to allow the vet to try the debulking procedure today. Best as I understand the conditions, one of three things could happen: he starts the procedure and finds it to be way too complicated to even risk and stops immediately; or he gets into it and encounters complications he can't control (bleeding) and has to euthanize her; or he is able to remove some/most of it reasonably successfully.

She's there at the vet right now...he's supposed to start in about an hour. I held her one more time in my lap, kissed her on the head, and walked out the door with fingers crossed and tears in my eyes.

Maddie and Apogee...tears of concern here too.
Regardless of outcome, you've got a whole tribe to either hold you up or jump for joy.
We've all been there but each experience is unique and vitally painful.

Healing vibes to both of you...a loving journey

I'm sitting in the parking lot of the vet...he just called me in to look...she's intubated, and he had the tumor fully exposed so I could view it. It's huge, and he's not optimistic that there won't be bleeding complications.

I instructed him to proceed anyway. At this point, it's about making her comfortable, and simply waking her up won't achieve that.
