Napoleon (my little one eyed chihuahua/beagle angel child) is very sick. He's been diagnosed with anemia. At this point, the test results are pointing to drug toxictity from the seizure medication he was recently put on (but they aren'y 100% sure of that still). His red blood cells are being destroyed by his system and they are not regenerating on their own. On October 30th when I first took him in, he was down to a hematocrit count of 10 (when he should be between 40 and 50), meaning he somehow lost 4/5 of his systems blood. They have stopped his mediation that they believe is the culprit, but there are other pieces that still don't quite fit. Since his red blood cells are not regenerating on their own, he has been undergoing blood transfusions. Today, he is on his third transfusion. They will have to continue doing this weekly for the next few weeks, in hopes that he will respond positively and his cells will start regenerating on their own. They have made it clear to me that his condition is not good, and that they will do what they can to try to figure this out and treat it, but that it's possible he won't recover. I want to be able to allow them to do anything they can think of to try to fix this problem and help him recover, but this treatment is insanely expenive. I have already spent over $2000 just on tests and transfusions, and we still don't have a solid answer. They are taking biopsies today to text for certain cancers, and each blood transfusion moving forward will add another $600 (est) to his bills. And that's not including the overnight hospitalization charges and any other test and work they do.
So it is at this point that I reach out and ask my friends and family for help. I don't know how much this will end up costing me when everything is said and done, but it's adding up quickly and I need help handling it. Any little tiny bit helps. Every penny will be going towards Napoleon's vet bills.
Thank you in advance to anyone who has the ability to help us during this rough time. I appreciate it more than I can say. And thank you to everyone who has been sending us encouraging messages and positive thoughts. Everything is appreciated. I'm truly fortunate to have such compassionate and wonderful people in mine (and Napoleon's) life.
<3 Breezy, Napoleon, and Goliath.
