Not such good news.
The hip isn't staying in the socket and won't without surgery.
It will run us over a grand, which we've already spent over that and we are POOR.
We've applied for care credit and got denied.
Our credit isn't good and to top that off, we're moving in a couple of weeks sucking up ALL our savings, which trust me, isn't much. I haven't eaten since Monday so she could have her medicine.
She needs this surgery and I'm crying about it and DH is like "well maybe she can still live a decent life without it". I'm like no, absolutely not, I'd give my soul to make sure she has this surgery which has a 98% success rate that the cat will live a completely normal cat life without any pain. The vet said if she doesn't have it, she'll never be able to walk right and will live with pain and eventually really bad arthritis. He's an awesome guy and is trying to work with us (even throwing in freebies without letting the hospital know) but we can't make this money just appear....we just don't have it!!!!
Sophie is 8 months old. She has a whole long life ahead of her. This is my baby.
The vet put on some expensive $65 patch on her hip that will slowly release pain meds for four days so she's not in as much pain and sent us home with more pain meds and sedatives, but says she has to be confined to her little tiny crate for SIX WEEKS
!!!! It's a full time job taking care of her, and I'm not complaining for my sake, I'm complaining for hers. I don't want her to be in anymore pain and I don't know HOW we are going to come up with the money for this surgery. I called other vets in the area and no one will take on this case because it's pre-existing and they don't want to touch it.
I don't know what I'm going to do.
Right now I'm going to the supermarket to pick up some babywipes for when she makes a mess of herself everytime I have to force-feed her meds, and soem babyfood, which the doctor suggested is easier to crush up the medicine in and syringe feed it.
I am praying and praying to God to please help me out here....I need a miracle right now.
