If the mass continues to grow, it will cut off all of Dudley's airflow, and basically choke him from within. It will also continue to get closer to his heart making operation even more difficult and dangerous. To give Dudley the best chance or survival, the mass needs to be removed as soon as possible. It isn't a cheap surgery....it will end up costing anywhere from $7,500-$10,500. First step is a CT scan to see exactly HOW close the mass is to his heart and major arteries. If the results come back and surgery is possible, they will move him into an OR immediately.
I know Dudley has weaseled his way into just about every single person's heart. I can't express how grateful I am for everyone who loves him as much as I do, and to everyone who has helped him out over the years. I don't feel like it's time to say goodbye to this little guy. He has lived an incredible 8 years, and I think he has another 8 to go! :) Any donation towards this surgery is appreciated and received with so much love from him mama (me).
I promise to keep everyone updated along the way. He needs all the help he can get right now. If you are unable to donate, please send us your love and prayers - that can be just as effective :)
We love you all. Thank you for every contribution and all your support!
