How Olivia became Valerie’s forever Princess
Olivia is a happy 6 year old little girl. About 7 years ago, I, Valerie, was rushing to work one day and there was a man standing next to my car holding a little puppy. He said “do you want her?” I was shocked. Not only was I already late for work but this random man is standing in my apartment complex trying to give away this little puppy. I said what anybody would say “why, what’s going on, who is she?”
He then put her in my hands and said he can’t keep her and started to walk off. I thought WOW!! I put her inside with my other dog who immediately took a liking to her. She was so quiet and sweet and curious. She was already giving me kisses. I made sure she had food and water and then rushed to work. I came home and took her to the vet to get her checked out and to see if she was chipped (maybe she wasn’t this mans dog). She had fleas but that was about it. I tried to find a home for her for two months.After two months someone finally was interested but it was too late. I named her Olivia and she was now my princess forever.
The journey to diagnosis:
Current treatment for Olivia:
They have her on very aggressive drugs and treatments right now. Yesterday, she received a type of chemo therapy treatment. At this point, I wait. I have to wait to see if her body will accept the medicines. They found a heart murmur as well so they have to be cautious and take extra steps to make sure her heart is strong enough for the intense drugs.
Why Valerie is needing assistance:
I was in such a state of shock and vulnerability when this all happened. It was so sudden. They are telling me my princess is going to die if she doesn’t get a blood transfusion right now…also here is a bill for $6,679.80. I had about 5 minutes to make a decision. I gave them the low amount of the quote. I am a waitress. I live pay check to paycheck. I also donate so much of my time with an animal rescue that I adore called MAEDAY rescue. I live a simple life. I don’t have a husband or boyfriend. My two dogs are my world. This has been overwhelming to say the least. They also can’t discharge her if she’s still bleeding. That means every night she stays there, it’s another charge. I love my little girl with all my heart.
