Hi again IMOM members, Portos and Cleo send their regards to all. It has been such a Journey helping my Portos recover after all the illnesses he went thru. He has put some weight back on, is very picky but I make sure he eats all of his meal, hand feed him. I finally got his wheelchair and he is still getting used to it, unfortunately being in a house where we don't belong has been extremely hard and I can't do whatever I need to do a better job for him. I have had to reduce Portos and Cleo's amount of food on a daily basis, to make it last longer. Thanksgiving Day we spent it alone and in loneliness, no Holiday breakfast, lunch or dinner, just a turkey breast sandwich for which I am thankfull, there have been days when the fridge is empty. I need to go back home and finish taking care of my mom's unfinished affairs, she left quite a list, but I'm close to the finish line, if not by next month, then by mid January things will be over and I'll be able to get my life back. I desperately need your help. I have spent whichever money I brought with me when I came to Denver to give my Portos my last embrace and kiss him ' til we meet again my Divine Love', as you know, he came back to life when I arrived to his side and called his name. Then I started to spend ( which I don't regret ) on his lab tests, treatments and medications, his, Cleo's and my food and maintenance here, plus money I have to send to the attorney who is taking care of my mom's legal issues in Mexico, plus salary I have to pay everyweek to the ranch caretaker. My ttd check has been stretched to the maximum and so has been our food here. We can not stay any longer, and incoherently, we can't leave either. We're stuck and depressed! I have started a campaign to raise funds for my trip, need to rent a car due to Portos osteoarthritis, the vet will only give me their health certificates if I travel by road, besides, the temperatures are droping and the roads become snowy, I've never driven on snow! and need to start my trip since yesterday to avoid much lower temperatures from Denver to Tamaulipas Mexico (North part in the country), after that, I may find rain but that's no problem. It will take me almost 4 days to get home to my mom's ranch, and my 4legged kids are going with me, no more trusting a family relative to care for them, my Portos' life was put in danger due to his neglect. PLEASE help us go back home, I have donated in the past to IMOM regardless of my very tight budget, I wish I had donated more but can't. I didn't ask IMOM to help me save my Portos' life, I read other pet parents' desperate cry to get help from IMOM to save their pets, and left room for them to get their help instead. I also tried to help by posting valuable information in the forum and blog for the IMOM community.But this time I DO need your help, if each of you donated $15.00 dls will help tremendously with the cost of our travel. My Portos is alive but not fully recovered, I'll be able to provide him with medical treatment in Mexico since it is much cheaper there, and will be able to give better use to my ttd check since I'll no longer have expenses here. I can also take him to the beach to strenghten his rear legs, he'll have such a blast meeting my rescue doggies who live on my mom's ranch, and the cattle as well, they've never seen one! Whatever long he lives, he'll have lived it surrounded by interesting and new experiences that renovate his mind, soul and body, most important, he'll be surrounded by tender loving and care, not rejected, neglected, and ignored as he, Cleo and myself have been here. I'm planning to leave next Tuesday morning to get home by Friday with God's blessing. Please, we can't stay here any longer, help us! You may have to go thru the hassle of registering at the website to make your donation: <removed> search for ' save Portos' life & take us home!" in fact, this website can be useful to any of you, even IMOM can raise funds there to help more pet parents in need, but please, help us now! Thank you ! PS- for those of you who don't know my Portos' story, search IMOM's forum, scroll down and to the next page to find "Portos my Divine Love " and continues under "Portos, osteoarthritis changed his life" THANK YOU !!!
