as many of you know, my friends, sara & gordon, lost their husky, eli tonight due to his lungs being infected. sunday, sara noticed eli was having trouble breathing so she rushed him to jefferson animal. x-rays confirmed the diagnosis of pneumothorax. after inserting tubes in the chest, eli was getting continuous suction. tuesday he seemed a little better so the continuous suction stopped and he was monitored. another x-ray showed a spot on eli's lung. he was scheduled for surgery wednesday morning. sara and gordon took him to blue pearl. after 2 big masses were removed from eli's lungs there was still more infection. the likelihood of him making was zero to none. sara and gordon had to make the hardest decision and do what was best for eli. although eli did not make it through surgery his parents still have to pay for his medical bill. they should not have to deal with the loss of their baby and this huge medical bill, so i made this page on their behalf. even if you donate a dollar it will still help, and even if we do not reach our goal, it will still help them. thank you for visiting and please continue to pray for eli's parents.
