Yup, well as I expected...I can't sleep.
I've been trying to do some research and I can't find anything at all about Parrots getting tumors in their throats. Not a single thing. So, in a way it kind of gives me hope. Maybe its not a tumor. A cyst would definitely be easier to treat I think.
If it is a tumor, thats really scary, but it would mean that we would surely be accepted to LSU vet school, b/c its a rare case.
But then what are Fred's chances if that is the case?
I'm incredibly anxious, I'm incredibly scared. Josh may be selling his outstanding collection of Michael Jordan Basketball cards that he has been collecting since he was a kid to pay for all of this. That totally breaks my heart. I know they are just things and Fred means more to us than anything material that we own, but it still breaks my heart to see him part with them when there is a huge chance that he still may not survive. We really don't have any other way to afford it though, and since I lost most all of my stuff in my house fire about four years ago, I don't own anything of value except my wedding rings.
We have a care credit card that we could use, but I highly doubt that the college would accept that.
Although it would be great if they could, or at least set us up on some kind of payment plan if I put down a payment in the beginning. I'm just so totally stressed out.
I hate not knowing. Not knowing if we're going yet or not, not knowing what Fred's chances are, not knowing if he's suffering, not knowing how we are ever going to pay for it all....
I'm losing my mind I swear. Thanks for letting me vent.
