Helping my humans

Hello quarantined humans, 

My name is Mustache I am a miniature schnauzer 4 years old and was adopted on August 23, 2018 along with my sister Dolce.  I'm currently in a hospital in the City of Irvine recovering from surgery and I am asking for funds for my very hairy quarantine humans.  I unfortunately raptured disc 4 and 5 and nerves which sends signals to my lower body in order for my tail to wiggle, my two back legs to move and also sent signals to my brain to when I need to go outside (because I am a VERY good boy).
On Wednesday morning I ate my breakfast went on my normal walk with my human daddy that is when he noticed I wasn't my usual self and then the afternoon came around. My humans started to notice something was wrong, they noticed I started to lay on there bed a little more than usual.  When evening came, things turned for the worst. My humans didn't know what was happening to me because we can't really communicate only through our eyes and actions.  They noticed that I was dragging my body and was only taking a few steps.  That is when they took me to the VCA emergency room and they thought it was pinched nerve so they gave me medication and sent me home at 3am.  At 6am my human daddy heard me crying so they gave me pain medication, which made no difference and I was still crying of pain so my parents took me back to the VCA.  My human mommy demanded to see a neurologist and that is when we got referred to see a specialist in Irvine.  I got checked-in and that is when things turned even worse.  They told my human parents that I was paralyzed from the waist down  and that I needed to get an MRI done to see where the damage was located once the results came in they saw that I raptured disc 4 and 5 on my spine and was hemorrhaging inside.  They took me immediately to surgery and performed a 2 1/2 hr surgery.  The doctor also fixed other disc and along my spine and reinforced them which will prevent me from having another raptured disc.  My chances of this happening again was 60% and it went down to 7%.  I currently still have no feeling in my tail or legs, but I will NOT lose hope and I KNOW I will run again  with rehab and a lot of love and prayers from my humans . 

This money will go towards my medical bills and will help my hairy quarantine humans pay some of it. I know everyone is suffering due to the COVID-19, but any money will help my humans and will be GREATLY appreciated.  

You can also sent it via PayPal just sent my human mommy a message and she will share that info with you.


Stay safe woof woof
