Saving RED

Update posted by littlRED On Sep 26, 2012

Red came out of surgery earlier this afternoon. The vet informed me that things where not as "terrible" as the previously thought. Turns out, one of the uterers came into the bladder at the right spot, but was closed off to the bladder. It had an extension off of it where the urin was coming outside of the bladder. So instead of having to cut, size and place the ureter into the correct spot (as they thought) they only had to open it into the bladder and then cut and seal off the extension. This increases her chance of a successful surgery and healing process. I am glad that we were able to do this surgery.

Sometimes things are not as bad as they first appear and you never know unless you take the chance. I am very thankful for those of you who helped out with funding this surgery. I thought it was hopeless when we heard the cost but because I took a chance on the good will of others, I was proven wrong. Just like the ultrasound results were proven to not be as terrible as they first appeard. Thanks again!

For anyone who might still be following this, Red goes in for her Surgery tomorrow morning. We will not get to see her until Thursday!! Tomorrow night will be her brother, Russell's, first time away from her. We want to thank everyone who contributed to her cause. We really appreciate all you have done and we are just praying that the surgery and recovery will not be too hard on her!

Well, I kind of gave up on the whole bribing people to donate. If you donated and want some Avon stuff, just let me know! I will get you what you want.  As far as Red goes, She is has just developed her third infection this weekend. I will be calling to get her on antibiotics again in the morning. My only fear is that she will become resistent to them if we don't get the surgery soon.

She is otherwise a very happy dog. She loves playing with her brother Russell and her and her mom Ash get into a lot of "mother/daughter fights". She has learned that if the back door is unlocked, she can jump at the knob and it will sometimes open for her. This happened today. She loves people and wants more than anything to be able to sleep upstairs with us. She currently has to be put in a room full of saw dust to sleep. The saw dust helps keep the moisture off her skin and keeps the infections away longer. We put her brother in there with her to keep her company. He doesn't mind it because he loves her.

We are hoping to start making plans for the surgery but we still need all the help we can get. I would love to see more people donate small amounts. $5.00 may seem like a lot to some, but really, it is a drop in the hat compared to things people waste money on today. At least the $5.00 you will be donating to this cause, will save a life.

Continue to get the word out and please do all you can to help!

It is people like all of you and your self-less acts that make the good things in this world happen! Jody, you are a true lifesaver. I have never met someone who is so willing to give in order to see someone else succeed or gain. I wish it was more of a joint effort and that more people would donate small amounts but there are too many people who won't sacrifice a few bucks to help someone in need. There isn't anyone I know who is desperately unable to help with a few bucks, yet none of them do! Thanks again to everyone here who has been so giving! You are all amazing people and will for ever be recognized for your efforts!
