The Outage With No End

I am currently writing my blog posts either on a wing and a prayer because I have a very feeble connection to the internet - or - from McDonalds and Burger King because I have NO internet.

I am a freelance writer and web content developer and I am utterly reliant on a consistent signal in order to work. That I am experiencing an outage at all is extremely stressful, but experiencing it while Nadja has been so sick has made this pretty seriously unbearable, and that all of this is apparently due to an unpaid bill on the part of building management make is infuriating - as well as unbearably sad.

I have a blog here: http://noexit-16.weebly.com/
And you can see Nadja's fundraising page here: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/nadja-means-hope/x/6382064

Any gift that you can give right now is so very appreciated, I can't tell you. All donation will be used for Nadja's end of life care, medications and expenses while I figure out a work around for this outage. Thank you.
      


Nadja is 13 years old and has spent her life giving - happily, I might add. She was a service dog, and therapy and comfort dog, and has brought joy and laughter to many, many people through the years.

Last week Nadja began limping and so I brought her to the vet. At first they thought that she might have developed an infection in the joint, but her diagnosis turned out to be much, much worse.

Nadja has been diagnosed with osteo-sarcoma in her  left leg. Her condition is terminal. While I was just beginning to feel the impact of the impending loss of my best friend, I suffered yet another set-back. I am a freelance writer and apparently there was a power surge that blew out the internet in the complex where I live. I am at a neighborhood restaurant writing this because my internet is completely down back at home.

My freelancing is our only source of income and as of right now - I have lost every project I was working on last week. We are in desperate, dire straights at a time when Nadja needs stability and calm the most. I have a page for her here:

http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/nadja-s-means-hope/x/6382064

and here

http://www.weebly.com/weebly/main.php

I have also been recording a video diary of our experiences, and once I get the videos converted, I will be uploading them onto YouTube.

Even the smallest donation will make the biggest difference. All proceeds will go for providing comfort, hospice care and safety for this beautiful dog during her final days.

The vet was unable to tell me how long she has - anywhere from a few weeks to a few months.  She is still able to get up and get around although her leg obviously is causing her some discomfort.

She is on medication to manage her pain and I have been compiling a bucket list for her that include things like afternoon playing with a gentle puppy (because she loves puppies) and Hang out day with neighborhood friends - people that she adores that I plan on inviting over to spend some time with her.

If you are interested in helping, you  can send a donation to her indie page, or directly through paypal at fourmedallions@yahoo.com
