Athena needs your help!

Update posted by ErikkaUpshaw On Jan 17, 2013

Hello,

I'm late with the update, I've been working a lot so I've found some time to let you all know how the consultation went. Athena needs surgery for both knees. Her left leg is much worse than the right but they both need repair. The surgery is called TPLO and they adjust the bone and put a plate in so the two bones come together in a better fashion. The surgery is quite common so I feel very positive about the outcome. The downside is she will have to undergo 2 separate surgeries and this doubles the cost. We appreciate all that you, our friends and family have done to help us. Please feel free to share this page on your social media networks to help spread the news and help Athena! As of now we have not scheduled the surgery since we now have double the amount to gather. I will update you all when we know more.

Thanks and Best to you!

Hi awesome people,

We have an appointment set with a surgeon on Monday to review Athena's upcoming surgery. I'm anxious to hear the next steps and will let you know Monday night what it's gonna be. Thank you again for your support, I'm humbled that so many are willing to donate their hard earned money, especially during this economy. Tomorrow morning begins my "extra" hours at work to help pay for her surgery. Over the next 2 1/2 weeks I'm picking up an extra 4 hours per day of work and also working Saturday's. As a team, we'll reach our goal in no time.

Best,

Erikka

Hello everyone,

First of all I would like to say thank you to everyone that has made a donation for Athena. I will be scheduling a consultation on Monday with the surgeon so hopefully it will go smoothly and she will know the right course of action for Athena. I will make another update after that meeting. Until then, we all thank you for the support and continue to appreciate every donation that has come in and those that are yet to be. Thank you!
