Smithduke,it's strange you should say that.
My Sammy who had cancer, would in his last few weeks sleep right by my head,something he never did before,but he was very,very sick in the end.
It was almost like he said good-bye to me.
I am not saying that's what Howie is doing,but I believe they can feel something is up and he gets great comfort from you.
With all the love and good vibes
we are sending him,I am sure he'll do great with the chemo
something that was not an option for my Sammy.
