JORDY UPDATE (27/03/08)

Okay … after much anxiety and stress I finally rang my Credit Card company and they agreed to lift the limit on my Mastercard enough so that I can now pay for Jordy’s operation on the day!! At first I thought I could pay the bill via payments, but when I rang to talk to them about that, they simply said they’d rather full payment … or at least 50%. So I have been stressing a lot about that, but now I have the credit (and with the help from the Jordy Fund … I am in the process of booking him in. I rang them Wednesday Morning to let them know I have the money and want to go ahead … they still haven’t rang me back (am expecting a phone call at work today). I am really anxious because the longer this is left, the more chance the cancer has spread.

Jordy has got a bit worse. The tumor on his eyelid is now big enough that it is rubbing halfway up his eyeball … and has started to secrete some sort of pus … so his eye is always dirty. Plus it is still bleeding a lot. He is still purring a lot and he sleeps with me (he has got really close lately). I will try to get some photos of him before the op … and progress shots after the op .. but will post them on my blog, because they won’t be pretty photos sadly. But I think everyone has a right to know that this is real … that your money is going to a good cause.

I want to take this opportunity to once again thank those who have purchased my work knowing the profits are going towards Jordy’s Operation. As of writing this … together we have raised just under $100!!!! That is amazing. But please … keep buying :) :) It helps so much!!!!

Hopefully after the phone call today … I will be heading to Perth either tonight or tomorrow for an overnight stay. Fingers crossed!!

For those interested in seeing where the money goes … I will break down what has been spent so far and predict future costs. It’s amazing how much it adds up :(
