Louie's emergency surgery

Hello my name is Heidi Barrett and for the people who know me know that I truly love animals. My dogs are like my children and will do anything for them! I decided to quit my job and try to start my own business cleaning houses so I could spend more time with my kids and my oldest dog who has bladder cancer. I just started this a wk ago so I am still trying to build my clientele.  I notice he was not feeling well Saturday and was keeping a close eye on him.He started vomiting and stopped eating late that night. Next morning still vomiting and being Easter my regular vet was not open. I had to rush him to the emergency vet. They told me he had a blockage and would need to do surgery right away. They gave me estimated price of $2500. to $4000. I had to put a deposit down of $1500. which I had to borrow that money off of my dad. Here Louie swallowed a hazelnut whole in the shell. He came out of surgery and is doing ok but ,now I am left with this big bill and not a steady income. I hate asking for help but I am putting my pride aside for my Louie. He is my baby and will do anything for him. Even if you donate $5. it would help and I would greatly appreciate it and so will my Louie. Even if you can not afford to donate just sharing my story would help in case someone else could..
Thank you in advance!!!
