This is Mya June Bug! This is my sister Brogan and her boyfriend Wade's little baby, aka my niece! Mya was a rescue and adopted by Brogan and Wade this past summer and has quite literally captured, melted and stolen the hearts every single person she's met. I've never seen Brogan and Wade so happy as they are when they're talking about Mya. The phrase 'Who rescued who?' has never rang more true.
But now Mya needs some help... a few weeks ago she came down with a case of Cherry Eye. For those who don't know, it's an injury affecting a dogs third eyelid. The vet was able to save money by correcting it while she was getting spayed but it was still costly.
Last night, while still recovering from the spay and eye surgery she had last week, Mya started acting strange and crying out in pain. She couldn't get comfortable or keep food or water down and her belly was very hard. Brogan and Wade took her to the emergency vet around 3am and upon receiving x-rays they found she has something stuck in her small intestine. Attempts made to get Mya to pass this on her own have been unsuccessful and emergency surgery is required.
Between the extra expenses to remedy her Cherry Eye, and this upcoming surgery Brogan and Wade are now looking at close to $5,000 in vet bills. This morning after 8 hours of fluid, x-rays and care she was already at $1200.
Brogan has never been one to ask for help for anything, especially financially but she's fallen on hard times at the worst of times and needs it more than ever.
I understand that the Holiday season can be tight for everybody so I am only asking people to give if they can. If you can not please say a prayer for Mya, Brogan and Wade.
Any amount will be appreciated and will go straight towards getting Mya June Bug healthy and back home as soon as possible so she can get back to stealin hearts.
