Thank you for taking the time to read this. I apologize for the 2 slightly disturbing images. First I want to tell you about our situation. So that you understand why we can't afford this. Thanks for listening & your patience.
I am Joshua's grandmother by birth, mom by heart & permenant guardian by law. I have basically raised Josh his whole life. At 4 I was given guardianship of him. Due to sadly but finally having physical proof of abuse. This was from my daughters boyfriend, with her knowledge and she defended the heck out of him in court. Sad but true.
By kindergarten Josh was diagnosed with autism, adhd, anxiety, sensory disorder & ptsd (post traumatic stress disorder.) At the time, I was married, had a house, insurance and everything I needed & more to completely provide for Josh & Missy Moo. Sadly, we divorced.
I've since become disabled myself, due to a very long list of health issues. It was bitter sweet, simply due that school was doing a terrible job of schooling Josh. So, I decided to homeschool him. I was able to get him ssi, since although I have support orders, they're never paid.
Missy & Josh are inseparable. I first knew just how special she was when I saw how she would jump & run, at his slightest calls of distress & lick the tears off him if he cries. She has allowed him to be able to sleep in his own bed. She calms his anxiety better than any weighted blanket can. Although those are great.
How they met...
Josh asked for a puppy for Xmas. We couldn't bare to say no & hoped she would be good for him. Since divorced I can no longer afford any real vet bills. I've always tried to take the best care of her I could, feeding her the healthier dog foods, cleaning her teeth, etc. Hoping she'd never be in serious need of a vet. She does get a once over, when she gets her vaccines at a low cost clinic. They always say she looks & sounds great, great teeth, etc. Much, much to my dismay. I've recently found not one but two "masses" on her. As you can see in the pics. The clinic vet said these need tested for cancer. Unfortunately, they don't do anything like that there. It's only vaccines, spay/neuter clinic.
Thanks again, for listening & any help you can be!
Please keep us in your thoughts & prayers!
