Sadie's Surgery

Sadie has had a benign growth in her front leg for 2 years.  The first time she had it removed, the doctor found during surgery that amputation might be needed.  Due to the type of mass growing throughout her leg it is impossible to remove the entire thing and is only guaranteed to grow back.  A year later the mass had returned and I had it once again removed due to the fact that it was again bothering her.  At that time, the surgeon said that they would not do another removal next time because it was difficult to remove from how it was attaching itself to the muscles, ligaments, and they would not have enough skin to close it back up if they removed everything.  Well here she is almost another year and it has returned.  She is very happy and playful but it has become obvious that the growth is becoming troublesome and I am told that since it will continue to grow, that eventually the skin will break and she will live the rest of her life with an open wound that will not able to heal because the mass will not stop growing.  Infections and living on/off antibiotics is not how she should live her time here.  At this time I have made the hard decision to have her front leg amputated.  Estimates are between $2300 and $3300.  It has been a tough decision to even make and now time is becoming a major factor because of the size of the mass now.  I own my own business and took up a second job to make ends meet.  I have been working even more hours the last couple of week just to earn more to help  with this surgery.  I have to face the facts that I cannot afford this surgery at this time and hate to ask for help.  For me I would not .... but for Sadie I will.  She needs someone to help her now so that she can hopefully feel more comfortable by Christmas.
