The bullet severed the nerve that allows dogs to raise their paw when they walk; there was also still pieces of bullet shrapnel in her body through the exit wound, therefore causing the surgeon to strongly insist the leg be amputated.
Surgery was successful & Roxy is showing strength that only I wish I possessed. With Rehabilitation & weight management all the surgeons have assured me she will be able to still live a great happu life with me. It's just so hard dealing with everything from emotions, to furious angry to wanting to just curl up in a ball and cry, cry, cry. But Roxy is still with us today & I feel so, so blessed.
I am not one to ever ask for things from others I know, let alone complete strangers. But the surgery costs, ICU stay & rehabiltation is going to cost a lot. As of today, Monday, January 2, 2017 Roxy's medical bills has totaled to $9,577.55. Any help will be greatly appreciated. I am currently looking for a new home for the two of us & the hospital has graciously offered to keep Roxy in house until I find a new home. I am too traumatized to live back at the house where this horiffic incident took place. So I am straight-up asking, pleding for help with Roxy's medical bills, both current & in the immediate future, as well as aid to cover some moving costs I will encounter. I must find a new home for us immediately. Roxy is loved by every single person she has encountered in her 21 months on this earth. Her Instagram, @theroxyrott has had love, prayers & good wishes pour in from people all over the world. I can honestly use any help as soon as humanly possible. If people have news outlets I want this story to be told. I want these savages caught. God bless & on behalf of both Roxy & myself, I thank everyone who wants to help. Please continue to keep us both in your thoughts and prayers. I am not as strong as I wish I was. Roxy is my rock, my world, my absolute everything.
