Bucky’s Medical Fees

Update posted by Anna Lai On Mar 23, 2020

Good news: Bucky has been slowly weaned off the adrenaline medication as his blood pressure gets more stable. He is strong enough to go for ultrasound which the vet found his stomach and intestines the walls are pretty thick which proves that he has inflammation/infection of his gastrointestinal track.

Bad news: Because of the infection, his entire gastrointestinal track has stopped functioning. In layman terms, his digestive system kinda shut down so the stomach muscles and intestines are not doing their normal function. Like how when hungry the stomach will churn? That was why Bucky did not have any appetite the day before everything that happened. He is considered in critical condition but the vet has provided him with another medication to help stimulate this stomach and intestines so hopefully they work. This means he is still considered to be in critical condition.

As of today, Bucky takes 10 different types of medication. It is still sad to see all the tubes on him but he is definitely in good hands with the vet.

I assume he will need to stay a few more days until he is fully recovered. Maybe another 5 days. Which means the bills will be up to 10k. Stay tuned for more updates as I might have to really ask for donations to help with Bucky's medical fees.

Bucky is still in critical condition. He is still reliant on the drugs they give him to keep his blood pressure and blood glucose level up. The bills as of 7PM today is $4600. I have borrowed some money from a relative (I hate borrowing money, it makes me unable to sleep well at night until I pay it off). Just keep Bucky in your prayers so he can recover and come home by the end of the week.

Bucky is being given a 3 in 1 antibiotics (aka 3 different types of antibiotics to combat his inflammation). He is also given a feeding tube with proteins and an IV for fluids. He is also given adrenaline to keep his blood pressure up. He has just completed a bag of plasma and the vets are monitoring his situation. The drugs/medication are keeping him alive now. Just removing him from any (esp the adrenaline) would cause his health to deteriorate. So he is stable but not really stable (still considered critical).

I realized that it is unfair that there are hidden costs when you donate so it isn't full. So I am stopping the funding. I am collating whatever is collected and going to pay the vet whatever is collected on Monday. I'll get the invoice then and send it to those who have donated. I'll cover the other transfer fees/hidden costs. I apologize. Everything is rushed, my brain cannot brain, my English cannot grammar/form proper sentences and I am a mess. Give me time to figure things out.

Hi everyone!

I got a call at 4:30am this morning on Bucky's condition. Bucky is in somewhat stable condition but still critical. He is still having bloody diarrhea. He needs a plasma transfusion and that costs $730 for a 200ml bag. The total cost of the bills now is $3500. He is possibly going to stay for a few more days of which I would assume the price would get as high as $7000.
