First, thank you ALL for your prayers and kind comments over the last two days.  You have helped us immensely, and your thoughts and prayers have been a greater blessing than we could ever hope to thank you for.  But I must say the words that can’t possibly repay you, THANK YOU.  If only I could give each and everyone of you a big hug.

Since Kane’s care doesn’t come cheap, and some have already asked if they could help out with a small donation, I decided to post a link here for those who want to provide some financial assistance for Kane’s care.  If you want to help us pay for Kane’s treatment (MRI, surgery, etc.) please click on the link below which will take you to PayPal.

Help us Pay for Kane’s Treatment

FYI: Current estimates for Kane’s care are $2,000 to $2,500 for his diagnostic treatments (x-rays, blood tests, MRI, exams, etc.) and, these numbers aren’t solid since the diagnostics won’t be completed until tomorrow, about $2,000 to $3,500 for surgery- depending on what he needs.  We will know much more by tomorrow when he has his MRI, but the doctors think it is best to take him straight from his MRI to surgery- if it is required- since it is best to only put him under anesthesia once.

If you want to cut out the PayPal middle man (or you simply don’t have a PayPal account) just email totaltransformation@yahoo.com and I will gladly give you an address where you can send a check or money order.  I appreciate all your help- and our whole family thanks you for your prayers and donations.  Keep in mind that since I am NOT a 501(c)3 organization your donations are NOT tax deductible- even if they are enormously appreciated.

UPDATE: Kane is going for his MRI at 2:40 p.m. and will have his surgery immediately afterward if it is required.  The spot on his lung turned out to be nothing and his blood work looked great.  Praise God!

    Oh no! Poor puppy!! It is so easy to take for granted the uncomparable companionship and happiness we experience from a pet until something tragic happens to them! I will certainly be praying!!

    I feel for you! I had to get a surgery for my ferret, and I was able to call upon folks to help out! I’ve just donated a bit to Kane! Sorry it’s not more, but I’m a relatively poor grad student. Good luck!

  9. Thank you Karen. BTW, I’ve been a ferret owner in the past. I loved (and still) the little critters, but I just couldn’t bring myself to own another one knowing how attached I became/become and how relatively short their lifespan is at 4-6 years.

  10. Karen says:

    Yeah, I’ve lost 2 ferrets in the last year. I’ve currently got two boys at 4 yrs, 8mo, and one 9ish yr old lady. Only Loki is going strong, though he has adrenal issues too. Chaos and Snowball are both deaf, losing hair, and have insulinomas. I’m banking on the 7-10 year lifespan for Snowball and Loki, though I highly doubt that Chaos will make it that long.
