Update On Collection For @NoCrybabyDoGs (Daffy)

UPDATE on 7/10/11 - you pals are AMAZING.   Thank you all so very very much.    I'm overwhelmed at the total and I know Ingrid is also - over $1,900.   THANK YOU - THANK YOU - THANK YOU!



Hi friends,

Ingrid, Daffy, Mario and I are just overwhelmed by the total love and support shown to help Ingrid and Daffy.   As of this minute, a total of  $1,717 has been raised.   That is OUTSTANDING!   We just can't thank you enough.  I know Ingrid wants to thank each and every one who contributed from the bottom of her heart, she is so grateful - she will do so herself once she is feeling better.  

I did some calculating today based on the figures Ingrid provided me ($16.50/hour for week days and $18.50/hr for weekends).   I show enough $$ to provide her with 8 weeks of weekday home health care coverage at 2 hours a day, and weekend coverage at 1 hour per day.   That by itself will run $1,616.00.   Her co-pay on her new medication is  $80/mo.   Her normal drugs run her  $320/mo.   Adding $80 to that cost makes for a total of $400 a month that she is responsible for.   She now has enough money to pay her share of the new drug cost for 1 month, maybe 2 if she doesn't need the full two hours a day on of home health care week days.  

If you missed my original post regarding helping Daffy's mom's home-health care services, please see  Friday's post Help Needed Again Pals.
I talked with Ingrid a few minutes ago.   She isn't feeling any better now than she did when this all started on June 6th.   She still receives therapy 3 times a week, but so far she has not seen an improvement.   But she will  "hang in there" and keep it up with the therapy in hopes it does help.  In fact, one of Mario's blogging pals suggested that same thing as a possibility for helping.

I'm going to leave the Chip-in up and running for awhile to give those pals a change to contribute that had told me they just needed a few days.   Ingrid and I agreed if there are excess funds they will be saved in case home health care is needed beyond the 8 weeks and/or for Daffy's vet bill expenses, and once she's better, computer/card supplies so she can get her business up and going again.    Daffy will have to go to the vet in about another month for some shots, bath, and to have her ears checked.  (Ingrid is concerned that Daffy isn't hearing anything anymore - doorbell rang a couple of days ago and she didn't even look up!)  Not her normal behavior at all.

Masters/Staff of animals and  animal lovers are the GREATEST PEOPLE ON EARTH.   Thank you again so very much!

Mario and M
