Diary of a Madwoman
I haz a big sad

Hello and long time no speak.

Real life has been kicking my arse so that I've pretty much only been able to keep up with Twitter.

I endeavor to do better now that the Summer and family vacations are winding down.

For now, I am very very sad.

This is my lovely dog Jack



He went to the vet today to have oral surgery as his mouth and teeth had an infection.

While he was under the meds, the vet felt his spleen and discovered it to be hard and enlarged.

She ultra sounded it and found that there seems to be a mass of some type in his spleen. It could be a hematoma or it could be cancerous, they won't know unless they remove it. Either way it's dangerous and potentially deadly.

THey wanted to remove it while he was out but the oral surgery was already $326 and I didn't have an additional $750 to remove his spleen

I feel like an ass because I can't afford to do this for my puppy.

Ive been an emotional wreck.

Shannon retired and surprise, surprise! We didn't get paid mid-month as I'm used to. THis fucking sucks.

Anywho, Jack is home now and feeling good. We are trying to re-arrange some finances (luckily our trip to Vegas has been long paid for) so we can get Jack in ASAP.

Pardon my whine but things really suck right now. My pets are as much my children as my human son is.

I promise to try to post some happy news and pictures soon.

I love and have missed you all!

I am so sorry to hear about this :( I hope you'll be able to work everything out. I'll be thinking about you.

(PS I miss your updates. I realized I had accidentially unfollowed you on Twitter *headdesk*)

Thanks sweetie.

He's scheduled for the surgery tomorrow. So I'm keeping my fingers crossed

Awww, poor Jack. :(

I will keep good thoughts going your way.

Prayers sent for Jack!

Thanks sweetie, he's actually laying right next to me right now

Ah, so sorry.
I had to say goodbye to both my wolfhounds last year and it was so hard, and so sad, I and felt so guilty for not being able to keep them healthy forever.

Sending good stuff your way.

I'm so sorry to hear about your doggies. *hugs*

Yes they do become our children don't they?

Hello, baby.

Firstly, I'm so sorry to hear about Jack.

Secondly, if you can get that spleen out ASAP, do so. As a long-time rescuer who's had more dogs than I can count (literally), that is a very, very, very bad thing for a dog to have.

I wish you luck, and I am fervently praying that this will turn out all right.

{{{hugs}}}

I have a credit card coming in the mail, it's basically the only way I can afford the surgery. Hopefully it will be here this week.

THe vet said she would move him to the top of the surgery list as soon as I have the money.

I don't technically have "the money" but it'll have to do in a pinch

Thanks darling *hugs*

I know for me I'd skip some meals to take care of my pet "children". I lost my Mocha in May and though I knew I couldn't save him I did at least know I did everything I could for him! It's never easy to work around such expenses, but in the end, you'll at least know you gave it your all!

We'll say special furry prayers for Jack!!!
22nd-Jul-2009 01:30 pm (UTC)
Yeah, we just had to find a way to make it work. He's scheduled for tomorrow.

It was all so sudden that I wasn't prepared and my brain was everywhere.

Sorry that you had to lose one of your furry babies. *hugs*

I'm not sure if it works like human insurance, with pre existing cond and all, but you may want to try pet insurance. I have VPI and it cones in handy. Hope you and your puppy feel better!

I did look into that but with his epilepsy there's not much they are willing to cover.

Thank you and hugs

I'm telling you, we have some cosmic connection across the USA. I know how you are feeling, my beagle--I just lost on Sunday night, so I know what pain you are going through with your beloved animal. I'm sorry, sweetie.

Hugs for us both.
22nd-Jul-2009 01:44 pm (UTC)
I know!

My heart was breaking for you the other day when I read about your loss.

I was a wreck yesterday just crying and crying. He is going in for his surgery tomorrow. I've just got to figure out a way to pay for it. I couldn't live with myself if I just left him to die.

Aw, poor Jack. :( *hugs*

I hope everything gets sorted soon.

I hope that Jack is better soon. ~hugs~

Thanks sweetie
22nd-Jul-2009 03:52 am (UTC)
Oh, sweetie, that is so sad. I'm so sorry. Poor doggie. I'm sure you'll find a way to make him better. *hugs* for both of you.
22nd-Jul-2009 01:54 pm (UTC)
He goes in for surgery tomorrow.

I don't have the money for it but he's my baby just as much as my son is. I can't let him go without trying

Sorry to hear about Jack. *hugs*

thanks sweetie *hugs*

Honey you are not an ass, you just can't afford it and I know you would do ANYTHING possible to save your puppy. Don't forget you still have a family to run, and a child with special needs. We know you're going through rough time and no one is judging you.

Try looking for alternative ways to help lil' Jack, until you'll have enough money, if I could, i donate you some money baby.
22nd-Jul-2009 02:17 pm (UTC)
thank you so much sweetie.
I feel awful that I haven't been around much for you and I know you're going through a time too.

I love you darling *hugs*
