Help Chica with life-saving surgery

Hello all, For those of you who have been keeping up with this story, we rescued our sweet girl Chica in September. We drove 24 hours one way just to pick her up. She walked into the house of a kind man in Texas who lived directly off the side of the highway looking for shelter. He was unable to take care of her and reached out online for someone to adopt her. We fell in love and drove down and our little family was completed. We have been so grateful help her with all of her health complications. We bathed her, dewormed her, and we are in the midst of her heart-worm treatment. Just two weeks ago we found out the news that she has a severe diaphramic hernia. The doctors and surgeons believe she was hit by a vehicle. She has scarring on her ribs and basically all of her internal organs are pressed against her left lung. As of two days ago she had to go in for emergency surgery because she was vomiting profusely. They did the surgery and Dr. Kirk said it was the most severe and complicated diaphragmic hernia he has ever operated on. Almost her entire liver, spleen, gull bladder, and half of her intestinal tract was pressed against her left lung. She’s in recovery as of right now but her future is still unknown because the immediate 24-48 hours after this procedure is the most crucial. With how long she is in recovery and the surgery and emergency bill, we are paying over $3,800 on the low end and over $5,000 on the high end. We ask our goal to be $3,800 just to cover the minimum expenses. We are trying our best to save our baby with what we have.
