Surgery for Thor

I don't even know where to start or how to ask for this. One night almost exactly 5 years ago, I was browsing Instagram and saw a post by the SPCA of a pup and his brother. I don't know what it was, but I was there when they unlocked the door the next morning. They told me he'd be about 40 pounds, but turned into a 105 pound lap dog. 

I could go on and on with stories about him, but really me and him were just a perfect match. To this day he'll lay by the door the entire time I'm at work. If I leave him in a backyard, he'll lay by the gate that I use to leave. On the other side, he's saved me from some really dark times. And I don't really know if I'd be here without him. 

Thor loves all toys, but mostly the ball, swims like a fish, loves car rides, and has a blast playing with his new sister that I got last year, Lyla. 

A couple of months ago, Thor had a very severe autoimmune reaction for some unknown reason. He was hospitalized and at severe risk to spontaneously bleed into his brain. He managed to pull through, and was put on all sorts of medication. Just when we thought everything was getting better, he started bleeding into his leg. After trying all medication routes, the only thing left is surgery to open his leg up and clean out whatever is causing all of this. 

This is so hard for me to say because I would do anything in the world for him, but after the thousands already, I just can't afford it. And this is extra hard to ask, because we're not sure how much it's going to be. It could be simple once they open it up, or it could be complicated. I'll post the low and high estimate. But any contribution would mean the world to me. And especially him. I honestly don't know what I'd do without him.
