Help Save Lady

This is my furchild Lady, she is old body young soul type of kitty. She loved giving face nuzzles and head rubs all the while trilling in happiness at you. Sadly a week ago Lady had some unknown accident happen. During the accident she injured her spine, at first they thought it was  soft tissue muscular injury.  We took her home and she was hopped up on the drugs they gave her and she ate that night. After the meds ran its course she stopped eating entirely, even though she was on a pain killer. That cost us $620, Then we took her to another vet after she urinated on herself and stayed lying in it, she didn't move an inch. While all that happed she was clearly under stress and developed an Upper respiratory infection and she still wasn't eating. At this point I began to syringe feed her 8-10 syringes of food and water 3 times a day. She fought me so i thought she was getting stronger. We put her on the muscle relaxer again that was another $400.  She started to walk around and seem to get her footing again. For a brief 5 minute moment she even was her old self marking me with her mouth and trying to trill as she headbutted me. I thought she was get better, I think now she was saying goodbye to me. Today she was not able to walk, stand, eat or drink. She stopped making any noise other than self soothing purrs. Her new pain meds ran out on her after a day in a half, we couldn't afford the nearly $200 it would cost to get the full 5 days so we payed $67 and got what we could. The doctor was suppose to write a prescription for the meds to filled in the pharmacy, that vet did not call us back that day. So lady had to wait in pain the next day. What makes this all the worse is after we waited, and finally got the prescription written out. We came to find that no pharmacies within 2 hours of us filled the specific medication we needed. So for 12 hours she layed in pain. I made the call and rushed her to the Emergency Veterinarian. I have been saving for awhile now for an emergency. Today, that emergency happened....But I didn't save enough. Just for the overnight stay with an MRI tomorrow and nothing else the cost is $3500, If she needs any other treatment or surgeries it will be be another $3000-$4000 at the very least . I don't have that money, This is where I hope you lovely people of the internet come in.  If you can find it in your heart to donate anything to help me save her and get the treatment she need during the holiday season, I would be enormously grateful. I know during this pandemic we have all been hit hard. But I need to save her she is not only my pet, she is my therapeutic animal as well. I am a disabled vet with PTSD, I don't know what I would do without her. please help, anything, anything at all I will be forever grateful for.  All this money will go to funding lady medical treatment and if there is anything left spoiling her as much as I can. If after that there is anything left I will donate the remaining funds to a local animal charity. 

Thank you for reading, Thank you for donating and if you can't donate please spread the word.

Having a merry Christmas and happy holidays.
