Today, we are here to talk about Maria, a rescued dog from Seville who has been battling a tumor for several months. Tomorrow, we enter the operating room at 10 am to fight this battle and save her life. But before we discuss the surgery, let’s talk about how Maria came to be in our care.
Maria was rescued just before Christmas, and when we first saw her, she was in terrible shape. She was severely anemic, and it was impossible to operate on her immediately. We needed to analyze her condition to determine the type of tumor, the affected areas, and whether there were metastases elsewhere in her body. We had to take precautions and prepare Maria for the surgery. Unfortunately, her rescue coincided with the Christmas holidays, which further complicated her surgery.
Over the past few days, I’ve had to read through all sorts of insults and criticisms from people asking why we haven’t operated on her yet. These people have no idea about human or veterinary medicine, and it’s absurd to expect immediate surgery for a dog in Maria’s condition. There’s a lot of hard work that goes on behind the scenes to prepare for these surgeries, and it’s disheartening to read such uninformed comments.
Tomorrow, we will be entering the operating room to perform surgery on Maria. The surgery is expected to last anywhere from three to five hours and will be a complicated procedure. Maria has a massive tumor weighing over 10 kilos, divided into three parts, and another tumor at the base of her tail.
We will have two skilled surgeons performing the surgery, and I will be doing a live broadcast to show everyone the process of a surgery of this magnitude. We want to put an end to the criticism and the negative comments and show people the reality of this kind of surgery. It’s not something that can be done quickly or easily, and we hope that by sharing the process, people will gain a better understanding of the hard work and dedication required to save a life like Maria’s.
We ask that you please donate to help us save Maria and other animals in need. We appreciate your support and will keep you updated on Maria’s progress after the surgery. Thank you for your kindness and generosity, and we will see you tomorrow in the operating room.
