I need to send out a big thank you to this community. The support everyone here has shown us has left me lost for words. Thank you so much for your love and support and kind messages.
Several weeks ago I posted Marley's story (please see original post below for full story).
The last 7 weeks been the most trying up and down days of our lives. One day we would see massive improvements and then the next we weren't sure if we would make it through the day. Marley was diagnosed with a rare brain infection and underwent brain surgery. She has gone through complications with medication sending her into a state of toxicity. She lost her appetite and I was left with no other option than to syringe feed her for over a week until her appetite came back. Her ability to walk came and went as we weaned her off of anti-inflammatories. Yet through all of this, her spirits stayed strong and she never stopped fighting.
I am happy to say that Marley is doing amazingly well. She has so much energy and strength back. We are going on walks and playing fetch and enjoying life every day.
Marley will have to be on strong anti-fungal medications for the next 6 months to ensure we get all of the infection followed by another MRI to make sure everything is gone. On top of this, we just found out Marley will need to undergo one more surgery in the next few weeks. On top of her skull being cracked by whatever abuse she encountered in her young life, it also left her with several cracked/broken teeth in the back of her mouth which now have become infected. She will be monitored closely by the same top anesthesiologist that did her surgery the last time and will be in great hands.
We honestly could not have gotten through all of this without the support of everyone around us. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. You have helped save Marley's life and we will eternally be grateful.
