Good News/Bad News; Need Help

Hello, Dear Furriends!

We have an update to report.  It is a good-news/bad-news report.

On the good news side, Dad is doing better.  He did have a very bad episode that sent him to the hospital for a few days, and they said he 'flatlined' in the ambulance, but he came back to us.  

The doctors changed his medications, and it has helped him feel a lot better.  He is even trying to help mom around the house again.  However, he still does need a new heart, and is again being evaluated for the transplant list.

On the not-so-good news, Tigger is not doing any better; in fact, 3 days ago, he started refusing to eat.  Mom is trying to tempt him with special foods, and he does not want it.  Mom is having to make it all soupy, and make him eat it by squirting it into his mouth.

Now, we are in the very awkward position of once again needing to ask for some help.  Halloween night, the water heater gave out, and water was flooding out all night long.  Mom and dad did not notice at first, because it was raining quite hard.  It's a good thing the water heater is outside the house!

But, the down side of that disaster was that they did not have enough money to buy a new one, so they had to ask mom's daughter to put it on their credit card.  (Mom and dad got rid of credit cards years ago!)  Now, they need to repay the daughter! 

Tangled up in all of that are extra vet bills for Tigger, and the vet has allowed payments to be made over time, to a certain point.  We have reached that point:  no more adding to the tab until the current balance is paid.  

If anyone is able to help out, it would be so appreciated.  Mom set up a site for donations.  Please click here if you are able to help out.

Many thanks in advance for any help anyone can manage.  We really hate having to ask.
