This is such a difficult post to write. I don't if anyone has noticed, but I've been MIA the last few weeks. While August was a bad month, September has been a crazy month. Sadly, I'm still looking for work so that's not why it's been so crazy. I've been busy volunteering and interviewing. I'm currently waiting to hear back on three different jobs that I recently interviewed for.
While it's been crazy and mostly good, it's not been entirely good. Earlier this year, Chico had a bunch of sores on the top of his head that took eons to heal. As soon as those healed up, more would take its place. I finally took him to the vet and he was given a steriod, an antibiotic, and a cream to put on the sores. I could see a big difference within 24 hours and Chico seemed to be a whole lot less itchy. I just noticed recently that some of the sores have come back.
While cuddling with him one day, I noticed a lump. At the time I really didn't put too much thought into it. I'm not sure why I didn't, but I didn't. It was very small and it didn't seem to bother him. And now -- he's got several lumps! This comes at the absolute worst time because I'm completely out of money and am struggling to pay my bills as it is. I can't pay my mortgage, let alone afford to take him to the vet. I don't know what to do... I'm very scared because I don't want Chico to suffer needlessly. Right now he isn't in any pain, but I can't wait too long to get him treated or he likely will be.
I don't feel comfortable asking for anything but prayers. Please pray for my boy. He's nine years old and such a sweetheart. I've prayed for many of you and it would mean so much if you could pray for Chico in return. He needs all the prayers he can get right now. Thank you!
