I'm so heartbroken!

I think my mouse Jonas is going...I don't know what to do.
I checked on him a few hours ago and he was fine, I just checked on him two mintes go, and he looks like hes blind in both eyes, hes barley moving, and there seems to be a lump on his back. This all just came out of no where, I couldn't believe it. Just yesterday he was running around and playing, and now...all this...What should I do? And he won't even let me touch him,
but hes not like running away from me, just moving. I'm sososososo sad! </3

Take him to the vet! I am sorry to say this but it may be a tumor, with an abcess he should still be able to walk but hopefully im wrong and its just and abcess or something easy to fix. Good luck, Hugs to you both!

The stupid vet is closed today.
I'm sitting here balling my eyes out.
My mommy cleaned his eyes today, so atleast he can see.
Hes barley breathing.
I think hes gonna be gone soon.

Take him out of his cage and wrap him up nice and warm, he shouldnt be alone at a time like this. Can he eat or drink?

I moved him into my room with me and I put toiler paper in there for him and stuff, just to make sure hes warm and everything. He will take a couple of bites of something, then he will turn away and go back to sleep. I don't think hes drinking though. He was walking around a bit eariler though.

Get a pen or marker and draw a line at the level the water is at, if it hasnt gone down in a bout 30mins to an hour boil some water and put a lil sugar in (to give him some energy) and add a bit of cold water then put it in the fridge or add some ice cubes, when it cooled off get a syringe or eye dropper and gently drop some into his mouth. As for the food, have you tried treats, if he isnt eating normal food give him something he enjoys, it may get him to eat something. He sounds ok, he isnt as bad as he could be, trust me, also where is the lump and is it hard or soft? Try to make sure he doesnt walk around to much but the fact that he can move is a good sighn.

The first thing I tried was his favourite banana treat, and he took a couple of bites. Then he sniffed at his actual food, but hasn't eaten much.

Well, he sounds as if he should make it until you can get him to the vet
