Allow me to introduce you to my 32 pound money pit.
Who remembers last April/May when Lexie had 5 tumors removed? I can tell you, I sure remember it.
So on Thursday night when I found another lump in Lexie’s belly, uncomfortably close to where the old ones were, I may have freaked out a little (or a lot). She has another one by her armpit that I’ve been keeping an eye on, and the two of them together are anything but comforting. I texted my mom right away, who told me to stay positive, and then I sat on my kitchen floor and cried for the rest of the night.
Not really what you would call staying positive, I know. But positivity would do little good when I knew exactly what was about to happen.
Friday after work, I took Lexie to the vet, and he said exactly what I knew he was going to say. She needs surgery, soon.
So she had a blood test, which already cost more than I can afford to spend, and the results were good which means she can have the surgery. I don’t have a quote on that yet, but I think it’s safe to assume it will cost around the same as it did before. I didn’t have the money last time she had surgery, and I sure don’t have it now. But I think we all know that’s irrelevant, and there was never any question about going ahead with this or not. I’ll make it work however I have to.
So that’s what’s going on.
All that stuff I went through last year – the worrying, the staying at my parents house, the stress of moving money around, trying to figure out a way to keep her out of trouble while she heals, I’m about to do it all again.
I guess it’s just a good thing she’s worth it.
