Lucy’s Story….

After being rescued from Lockhart Animal Shelter with her puppy (who was quickly adopted), Lucy was scheduled for spay surgery.  Marilyn C. Lee volunteered to be her foster (as she has many times before) but Marilyn received bad news about Lucy at Emancipet.  Her spleen was enlarged and they recommended seeing a vet immediately.  Many vet visits later, Lucy went to a specialist and was given this diagnosis:  "Lucy has severe liver changes and I believe that she is developing Cirrhosis. Biopsies would confirm this diagnosis, but what I see is very worrisome. We can try to paliate her clinical signs with Prednisone and Actigal, but we may only have weeks to months of quality life. Please call me with your decision."

To Marilyn, the decision was easy, keep Lucy and make her life as happy and pain free as possible.   You might think it’s a miracle she’s still here, but for those of us lucky enough to know Marilyn, we are not surprised she’s helped Lucy beat the odds.  And she’s not only beaten them, she now has a chance at life-saving surgery.  Marilyn adopted Lucy so she is the sole caretaker for her. This is more than she can handle financially.  The surgery costs are estimated at $2000 to $4000, so we would like to raise at least $3000 to give Lucy and Marilyn the gift of many more years together.
