Lily's surgery

53305522_160801568679626_r.jpegNeedless to say, this is really difficult to post, but I need the help.  Last night at 6 o'clock, sweet Lily got in a fight with the Christmas lights in the front yard.  In the entire two minutes of craziness, Lily jumped off the porch and broke her front, left ulna and radius.  She is currently at BEVS in a splint, sedated and on an IV of pain meds.

It's been an extremely difficult night because I know how difficult the journey ahead is, not only is trying to keep this rambunctious, high-energy puppy calm and relaxed so she can heal going to be tough, but the financial implications for this single-mom are life-altering at best, devastating at worst.

I was quoted somewhere in the range of $6000 to $7000 for the surgery Lily will need in the morning.  I was able to secure financing, by the skin of my teeth for the care Lily needs, but it will mean a monthly payment for the next 24 months that will leave me hardly able to afford my monthly bills and this is if everything goes right for those next 24 months.

Those of you who know me well, know I don't like asking for help, but I know this time, I really need it.  Lily has filled our hearts with so much love since she joined our family.  She is the sweetest girl.  When the nurses met us to get her out of the car, even with the pain, Lily was so excited to meet new people and she was wagging her butt and tail like crazy.  She is furreal (see what I did there?), the best friend Autumn and I could ask for. ❤

If you have read this far, thank you.  I know 2020 has been a shit year for many, but if you have anything extra to spare, I would be forever grateful and indebted to you for helping during this challenging time. ❤

✌,  ❤ and to all.
