Saving Bubba

52080024_1605025192810465_r.jpegHey folks my names George and these two handsome fellas all dressed in black are Kane and Koal . Koal is the big guy that's laying behind Kane , that looks like he somehow knew he was getting his picture taken that day by the way he seems to be striking a  
                So if you haven't already guessed or were wondering , Yes they are brothers and to say that they are close is quite an understatement , They do almost everything together , it's really amazing to see how close they are  , which is all the more reason of why this is so important for us to make this happen for him . 
               Well as much as i'd rather sit here and tell some of the funny stories that these guys have given us over the years unfortunately I am here looking for some Help to save Koals' ( Bubbas' )  life . 

                He suffers from what's called Megacolon disease .
It is when his colon fills up with feces to the point that it starts to stretch and it will keep stretching until it will ultimately kill him . 
It started with him becoming severely constipated to the point of him crying out in pain . When we took him to the animal hospital  and did an x-ray is when we learned of his condition .  They were able to temporarily relieve some of the pain and pressure with enimas and attempting to remove the feces by hand , manipulating his belly/colon to help break up the blockage with one hand and with the other he would go in and try to pull out pieces ,  by hand and yes it is as bad as it sounds , actually worse but it worked to help clear out the blockage but we were told that it could and in all likeliness would happen again and it did , 3 times in fact but this time Dr.Johnson our Vet was unable to get the job done due to his feces being more of a harder , solid mass this time around , and that he was going to need a surgery called a Subtotal Colectomy .  They go in and remove the feces blockage and then they remove the damaged , stretched colon , then closing it back up ultimately leaving him with as close to of a normal size colon as what he should have . It's amazing what they can do nowadays cause this would completely correct the problem , leaving him with a proper sized colon that is working again properly as it once did . 
   If he gets this surgery he wont ever have to go thru any of those painful problems again and right now he is backed up pretty bad and this surgery is his only path for survival and time an important factor . We do not know exactly how much time we have to work with , so were trying to raise what's needed for his surgery as quickly as we can , so PLEASE help if you can , please share the story with friends and family and anywhere and every way you can...
           We need to raise a  little over$5000 thousand dollars and even normal circumstances for us to come up with that kind of money would be impossible for us , let alone with the way 2020 has been . 
             We are pleading for everyone that can help to please give what you can so make this happen asap , theres not alot of time for him  if we don't raise the money fast .
    Koal and his brother mean the world to me and our family . I had no idea that I could care so deeply or have so much love for an animal but their personalities are huge and i'll take them over people any day...  They have truly made such an impact on my life and I cannot and do not want to imagine life without either one of them .  They have shown me what unconditional love is and I am forever grateful for them , but with that said  WE NEED HIM , HIS BROTHER NEEDS HIM .
