The Story

My Little GizMoe Li a Pekingese had been having trouble going to the potty and was in great pain. I rushed him to my local vet and they told us he had a Perineal Hernia. They said he had to have surgery right away and referred us to a Vet in North Carolina. The charge would be $3500.00 to do the surgery. I paid the bill for the vet visit that day. $329.00 and I only had $70.00 left to my name. I had friends tell me in other states that it could be done for much less. I had no way to get him to other states let alone pay for his surgical repair. I had 3 options. Get the surgery, I was thinking surrendering him to rescue and the 3rd option would have been to put him down as it was just hurting him so much and I couldn't bear seeing him in so much pain. He is only 6 years old and has been with me for all of those 6 years and never sick a day in his life.  I called a vet up in Roanoke Va and she argeed to see him. She said it could be done for much less than $3500.00 She gave me a high estimate of $1534.00 and a low estimate of $1024.00. She did the surgery on 7/14/14. I was able to pay her $170.00. My husband told me to take the money for the power bill and see if she would start with that. She did. She is such a wonderful and caring Vet. I am trying to sell a few things I have to get the rest of the money. I was asked to put my pride aside and ask for help. Help on the bill can be sent directly to Harris Animal Hospital 6805 Peters Creed Rd Roanoke Virginia 24019 (540) 362-3753. I was able to pay off the first surgery but still need to raise another $1024, excluding the $602.00 currently raised in the fundraiser that went for the first surgery.

Update on GizMoe Li.......................................
GizMoe Li went back to see Dr Hodges this morning and got his exam and stitches removed. He was such a good little boy today. He is healing nicely and was in no pain. We are going to scale back on his pain meds and hopefully he wont need them much longer. He is still going to be on the 2 stool softeners but we are cutting back the dose of the Lactulose. He will still be taking the others twice a day for a long time to come. He can start having small amounts of kibble mixed in his ID but not to much to start. He got his booster shot today and is sleeping away.....He went with me on a home visit that happened to be right down the road from the vet and he really had a good time......He totally approved of the home where a special little Rescue Chin is going to call her forever home. NO POO yet

GizMoe Li had his second surgery yesterday. H had been in pain all weekend and Dr Hodges decided it was OK to go ahead with the second surgery early.
He came through it fine and she said it was a little more worse than she thought it would be. He rested last night and was snoring when the Dr left the hospital. He ate a good breakfast this morning and took his meds well. He went out for a short walk and took a wee wee but no poopies yet. That will come. Little guy is such a trooper to be going through all this. I will know more in a few hours and will let you all know how he is doing.
Thank you all for keeping him in tour thoughts and hearts......

Update on GizMoe Li............
Dr Hodges said everything feels great on his right side inside surgery. The scar tissue felt as it should. He still needs to take his stool softeners and eat just the id......He got his outside stitches out and he can keep the cone off if he is a good little boy. His left side is still a little puffy and is scheduled for his next surgery on the 14th of August. Dr Ho...dges hopes he wont have to stay as long this time as we know how he should progress and how to keep the Poo like we need it to be.He is allow to play with his little sisters and you know I will supervise that. He was such a good boy today and was even good for the exam of shame.........well he was good after the initial poke.......He had a good time seeing all the ladies at the vet....... 2 weeks down and 2 to go and 2 more or so after that........
