We took her to our local vet who did an ultrasound and biopsy which confirmed it is a type of cancer called a Mast Cell Tumor. The best course of action is to have it surgically removed as soon as possible! We contacted three seperate equine vets for estimates and have scheduled her surgery with Dr. Davis at Reata Equine Hospital in Weatherford, which is about an hour away. Once the tumor is removed she will have a drain put in and so she will have to stay there at the hospital for at least 3-5 days, possibly a whole week. After that I will be taking care of her here at Dancing Moon Farmstead.
Save a Hip:
On July 14th I am having hip-replacement surgery and will be out of work for at least two months. I've been suffering from severe pain and loss of mobility, and also spiking hypertension and pre-diabetes as pain and lack of exercise have increased over the past few years. I am at the point where I can barely walk even with a cane, and now that I finally have health insurance and have lost a little weight and dropped my blood pressure I can have the surgery I need to, literally, help me get back firmly on my feet. But because of this condition I have only worked part-time for the last few years and have almost no resources to use as I face several months without a real paycheck.
Save a House:
We're under forclosure with the sheriff's sale date set for August 16th. We have no where to go. I'm worried about my two boys and I'm scared about what'll happen to my cats. I work two jobs and have applied for a third. My husband is a truck driver who is gone six days a week. We need help getting back on our feet. Thank you so much for your support and help. It means the world to me.
Save another House:
They are divorced, but the damage to the house remains and is a constant reminder. He ripped a hole in the bathroom "intending to fix the plumbing", but never did. This gaping hole has been here for over six years, and because of that we can't take showers for longer than 5 minutes otherwise the entire apartment will flood and it will go into the apartment below. The mirror is falling out of the wall, and the shelves inside it are broken because of his tantrums, the pan beneath the bathtub is busted (the original plumbing problem he was "going to fix"). Essentially, the entire bathroom needs to be ripped out and redone.
Remember even small amounts can help, and reblogging is really appreciated.
