The Story

LEXI is Jerry's aka Bella-s-dog little girl
Lexi is fighting for her life. She overdosed on Meloxicam, a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug for humans only. Lexi is in ICU and her vet bill keeps climbing. So far $1800 was spend in the last 48 hrs on Vet bills.  She is staying at www.allpetcare.com hospital.

Please everyone help Jerry with his Lexi's vet bill as it keeps getting higher and higher.

Jerry has done so much for us during the years and it is because of him that we have such smooth streaming on all of our ustream channels. This is a great opportunity for all of us to give back to him.

All help with Lexi's vet bills will be greatly appreciated.

Let us all help NOW!

Thank you for your support, Vera

lexi continues to improve. However, last night I noticed an odor and when I looked under the dressing I noticed the surgical site was infected. This morning I took her to the vet and she removed the feeding tube because it was infected. I'm sure Lexi is glad it's out. She is eating her two meals a day just fine and in one week she gained 1.5 pounds. Way to go Lexi. 

While led she is there they will repeat her kidney function test and I should have results later today. 

I didnt forfor get about the group picture. Maybe this weekend. 

Once again thank you for your donations. Without them I don't think this would have been possible.

Lexi is pretty much acting like her old self. She had a good checkup last Friday. Dr adjusted her feedings to make sure she is ingesting enough calories to regain some of her weight.  She is starting to eat solids on her own but  we are giving her some tube feedings to fatten her up.  Dr will repeat labs in a week or so to check for any kidney damage.  Also, the feeding tube will remain in place for 2 weeks just to be safe. Hope to post a family picture with Lexi sometime tomorrow.

thanks again!

Lexi continues to improve. So far her  bills have added up to $5,855,35.  Thanks to your generosity we were able to bring her back to health.  I would expect her feeding tube will be removed sometime next week.  I tried to post the pdf here but the site did not accept a pdf file.  So here is a link to it.

Great! I can still post updates.  Lexi is doing better.  Little by little she is eating more solid food everyday (chicken and rice) and I supplement that with one to two tube feedings. I feel she is on her way to recovery.  She is definitely back to chasing squirrels, sunbathing and running in the backyard.
Definitely, more alert than this past weekend.

I hope to bring her with me this Friday to schnauzerville.  Yes i had to reschedule my trip due to my shoulder and therapy schedule.

One more thing and I can't believe I forgot to do until now.  I have to extend a VERY special THANK YOU to Vera, aka Max, from http://www.maximilianschnauzers.com and http://livepuppycam.com.  She is the one that came up with the idea of the fundraiser and took the time to set it up for me and the kids.

From the bottom of my heart I want to SAY THANK YOU VERY MUCH for what you did for us.  You were there for me 2yrs ago when I suddenly lost my black schnauzer Ramius and now this.  Thank you for being such a GOOD FRIEND.

This may be the last update on Lexi. I'm not sure if I can post updates after the fundraiser ends. Lexi is doing well. She will stay home with me for the rest of the week. She is eating solid food and is staying hydrated.  Overall, she is doing well. I'm anxiously waiting for her first bowel movement since we started her tube feedings.  All in all she seems to slowly be getting back to normal.  She is barking at other dogs, chasing squirrels and hidding in the shed with Bella. 

At this time I want to thank all the supporters that made this dream a reality.  My kids and I will never forget what you all did for us.  The support we got from everyone (even from folks i do not know) was incredible. 

Thank you very much,
Sarah, Diana, Matthew, Nicholas & Jerry

Lexi is finally turning around.  Her labs results showed improved kidney function compared to Friday's results and hwer white blood cell count is down to 28,000 from Friday'shigh of 52,000.  She is more playfull and vocal.

Last night was a rough night. Lexi seemed very lethargic and I kept debating what to do.  She looked a bit dehydrated.  This morning whe woke up on the same spot I placed her on last night.  Then I opened the slidding door and she ran outside. I prepared some boil chicken and white rice but she wasn't that interested in it. SO as I start to prepare her tube feeding she began to eat her chicken and rice. YES!  Then I had to leave for physical therapy. When I got back i served her another but smaller plate and she ate that too.  So when she was done with it we left for the vet.  She adjusted her dressing around her neck after noticing some swelling under her jaw. She also drew some blood to repeat the labs. So far today she is doing ok.  I guess her bowels are getting cranking because her farts for a tiny dog STINK like crazy.  I don't mind.  Just glad to have her back.
She is a FIGHTER for sure.
