Diego's unwell weeks

February - James Wiggins

A small, grey degu (a rodent) rests on a ledge.
This month was really stressful because Diego took a tumble and during his checkup (he was fine) they found a growth on his shoulder. Everything pointed towards cancer, including things said by the vets. They took him in for a biopsy and then I watched as the stressful week took it's toll on him. He was sleeping, barely moving and really struggling. The tests came back as it being no concern and he was sleepy from the medication. He's an old boy now but, as I type, is running on his wheel happily.
