Lucy underwent surgery this spring to remove her gallbladder before it burst due to mucocele covering the organ. Unfortunately, her recovery was very complex and ten days later she had to have a second lifesaving surgery after she became septic. She spent a whole week in the ICU. Lucy is strong and made a recovery to her normal self.
Six weeks later, Lucy is in the ICU again and fighting for her life. After three days of testing, the vets discovered a bacterial cyst on her liver. She has been in the ICU for five days trying to fight the infection.
Lucy is a part of our family and we want to do everything that we can for her. Her initial emergency surgeries and ICU care to fight her infection was more than we could have ever budgeted for, at $8100. And now, just four days in the ICU again is over $4000. Of course, we don't want the cost to be a reason she doesn't get the care she needs to recover.
Since letting our friends know about Lucy being in the ICU again, they ask "what I can do to help?” It's a really hard for us to say this, but right now the best way to help is with our medical bills, praying every night for us, and sending good energy and thoughts.
We are determined to give Lucy the best care so she is able to recover and come home. Thank you for to everyone who has reached out. All the support and sympathy has been amazing.
**If we end up getting donations that surpass her medical bills, we will donate it to Peace Of Mind Dog Rescue, an organization I volunteer for.
