Avail is in emergency care. She had to be resucitated once earlier today. Since switching her to them, her temperature has already gone up almost 4 degrees and she's breathing on her own. Her heart is strong and her lungs are clear. They gave her buprinex to help with pain because her surgery. We removed the fentanyl patch last night because of how she was acting and I think that is what caused her to crash.

The cost will be over 3000$ and we had to use care credit as we've already spent everytjing on her previous surgeries. Please, please, please...if you can help, we would be grateful. Avail is our child and we're doing everything we can to not lose her.

She's been beating the odds for the past year and a half and we truly believe she will beat this too. Have faith.

Dear Avails mom,
Just now, we are not in great money shape.
But in a couple weeks that hopefully will change. Til then, we are spreading the word about things...and we understand.
Hugs and loves from all of us here in Ridgewood.

I my heart goes out to you. I have heard that about the patch - it can be good, but can cause problems for some kitties. Can they do any type of chemo? I don;t know alot about kitty breast cancer, but I did lose a dog to it when I was a kid, so I understand. I hope beyond hope that things will settle for her so that you can enjoy alot of time together. I am heading over to her fund page. I don't have much, but will do what I can to help. Please know that you are in our thoughts & prayers.

Sadly, Avail lost her battle this evening. She fought until the end. Her body was just too weak to fight everything that was going on. I will update with specifics tomorrow, but letting her go to the rainbow bridge was the best decision to make for her. As hard as it was for us, it was just something that needed to be done. We had to fight for her, we had to give her a chance. She deserved no less.
