Please help Trixie survive poisoning

https://d2g8igdw686xgo.cloudfront.net/17646778_1485096169.219.jpg

If you are a dog lover then you know that Trixie is more than a pet to her person

I can personally vouch for the people involved and will be throwing something their way myself

In my time of need they did the same for me

If you can help out please do

“My beloved 3 year old rescued pit mix, Trixie, got into a bottle of ibuprofen last Sunday afternoon when we were grocery shopping. She’s the type of girl to chew slippers and remotes, and seasonally the Christmas tree, but never anything like this. We came home to pinkish vomit at the door, and when I went looking for what she might have been eating I saw the chewed open bottle and pills scattered everywhere and knew we had to act fast. The animal poison control line said 4-6 pills is a potentially fatal dose for a dog her size. She ate over 100 pills.
The ride to the emergency vet was the most afraid I have ever felt in my life, we could see her slipping away. The ER vets began treatment immediately. While they were saving her life, we were taken into a room to talk about how to cover her treatment. They estimated treatment would range from 2- 3,000 dollars. I instantly started sobbing even harder, I work at a coffee shop. That’s more than what I paid for my car, I do not make that kind of money.
Without even blinking, I applied for the care credit card and was approved for $3,400. No way I was going to give up on Trixie because of money, my boyfriend and I don’t have human children, our dogs are our whole world.
Anyone who has ever known a pit bull knows how resilient they are, against the odds Trixie’s kidney function started showing signs of improvement late Tuesday night.
They had her on 4x the normal amount of administed fluids to keep flushing her kidneys of the poison. ”

Funding for Shaylyn

So this is where it all started

I was at work on Oct. 21st when I got a call from my wife

I was doing irrigation service right around the corner from home (Thank God) and it was the call that no man ever wants to get

Her son who was 38 had just been killed in a high speed car accident outside of Tampa

I say her son because even though we have been married for 26 Yrs. I did very little raising of him

But anyway, that was the start

Then, the week before Christmas our Daughter Shaylyn who is 36 calls to inform my wife that she has adrenal cancer

Bear in mind that she has 2 children and just lost her brother

I say ours because even though she is not my blood, I have raised her since age 8 as my daughter

Anyway, she also has tumors on her kidneys and spots on her liver that are most likely also tumors

She was hospitalized for 2 weeks because her blood pressure was out of control and she was seen by a specialist

She was supposed to have laproscopic surgery to have the tumors removed immediately

That was weeks ago

Unfortunately she is uninsured and medically needy and no doctor will touch her

She will have to wait until an endocrine surgeon  decides to donate his charity

Or not

I live in Florida in a county that has the highest unemployment rate in the state and own a business that has been drained over the past 6 yrs. to nothing

We as a family are in dire straights

Without treatment Shay is destined for a short life with a lot of suffering

I don’t know if it is pride or denial but she will not quit working to go on disabilty

And at this point the process is probably too long anyway

The surgery may or may not save her

I don’t even know

To tell you truthfully I don’t even know what it costs

But I can’t sit and do nothing

I haven’t asked her approval yet and don’t really care

I have a link below for paypal to donate

I don’t know how to get a button so it is just a link

I don’t use paypal for anything other than buying so any funds donated will be earmarked

Even if you don’t donate I would sure appreciate you passing this on

If anyone needs my contact info to verify the the veracity of this leave me a comment and I will send it to you

 

https://www.paypal.me/FundsforShay

Update: Here is a go fund me link if paypal doesn’t work: gofundme.com/p5kymvxe

Update 1-23: Apparently there is an intermittent problem with the pay pal link. If it does not work, my email is Eatgrueldog@yahoo.com. Leave me a comment if you need USPS. I no longer care if I am anonymous. If you don’t have paypal send me your email and paypal can invoice you.

Update: I have been trying to individually thank those that have donated but my e-mail keeps screwing up. If for some reason I don’t get back to you know that what you did was greatly appreciated and you have my most heartfelt thanks.

Update : Shay found out about this site an hour or so ago and was ecstatic that people were helping her out. So far, minus snail mail, $ 1545.00 has been raised. I thank you all. I now have a plan since an insurance agent left me a comment and contacted me. Instead of some crazy some, I am after enough to get her insured and pay her deductible.

I am still waiting on numbers and will post them when I have them. So far it is looking like $420.00 a month and a $1600.00 deductible.

Even if another dime doesn’t roll in, I am eternally grateful to those that have found the kindness to help us out. One way or another we will make it work.

Update: Shay is on the medically needy program and was just informed that no endocrinologists anywhere near her will provide treatment under that program

Update: I do have an asset if anyone is interested in land in Florida

I have an 80′ X 120′ lot on a 6 mi. long island in the swamp with a delapitated mobile on it

I will sell it for half the value it is listed as or for whatever
