The incredible saga of Jon Snow continues!!! Unlike my Game of Thrones counterpart, I am still alive and fighting! I was rescued about a month ago by Rolando and Nicole who had been feeding me for a few weeks and noticed that a growth on my bum was continuing to grow and I was continuing to get skinnier. They rushed me to the vet, where I was treated with an IV, had my blood drawn, and was tested for just about everything imaginable. Good news: no heartworm or other infectious diseases. Bad news: My white blood count was over 90,000 (normal is 17,000), I had liver and kidney issues, a mass was on my bum, I had a UTI, and I was very anemic. As the weeks progressed, my liver and kidney’s slowly improved, along with my anemia a bit, but my WBC was still very high. And I continued to lose weight. Even with all the poking and prodding, my tail still wags when I see humans who love me. The doctors have been taking excellent care of me and even have a special place in their office where I get to chill. A couple days ago I threw up and didn’t want to eat all day. Back to the IV I went and for more blood work which went to Manila for further testing. Tests finally came back and I tested positive for Babesia (Lyme disease). I will need to stay in the vet’s place for another few weeks at least or until a wonderful foster family can offer their home. Rolando and Nicole have been wonderful rescuers and are paying my bill but are asking for any financial help as my bill has gotten a bit steep (currently about 55,000 pesos or $1200). If you would like to help me out and live in Cebu, please feel free to come to the clinic Pets in the City where I spend my days currently or if you are not in Cebu, you may donate through PayPal. Just message Nicole for details:) Please keep me in your prayers. I may be down at the moment, but I’m not gonna give up!
