The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:
Happy Giving Tuesday!
We were able to save Grandma Gladys, and she is happy, cuddly and LOVING actually being fed. However, she needs special groceries and we need to buy more hay in NV for the permanent residents. I had to buy truck tires yesterday and did so completely on Faith! It was definitely not in the budget, but I have to be safe, especially when hauling 14,000 pounds in the winter.
Purchase truck tires $1800
Hay in NV – will be $1500
Goldendale Vet $1500 (approx.)
Sparkles Vet bill – $325 (approx) initial bill I still haven’t received
Golconda Vet bill – $100? (Doc had to do a ranch call )- Anika is ok)
Sadly I am having to really address my physical issues at this time. I am having more and more limitations on what I can do physically, and that affects everything, So I figured it was time to share what is actually happening. I am pretty much having to hire help for most ALL of the physical needs of the rescue. This isn’t really new, but the amount of help I need has definitely increased.
I have had about 50+ surgeries, with the latest being just last December. I have RSD (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy) which is a horrific nerve disease, as well asfibromyalgia.
I have a generator and battery pack in my stomach, and a spinal cord stimulator in my spine. Lately I have been needing my crutches, but my right shoulder replacement is giving me grief and definitely does Not want me using crutches. I can’t roll my wheel chair with my shoulders so messed up either. My brace is broken and I could really use a new body lol. If I was a horse I would put me down lol, but God still has lives for us to save!
This has been my normal life for years, but it is starting to affect what I need for the rescue in a much bigger way. I need to hire A LOT more help. It’s all good, but it makes for an added expense. It is also a huge reason why my Thank you’s are so behind, as well as everything else. I can only sit at my desk for increments of an hour or so at the most.
I am honestly just extremely grateful to God that I am not stuck on a couch scarfing pain pills. It’s either go non stop and “git ‘er done” (I can’t sit still because of the pain) or be in a coma on pain pills. Luckily I can get up most every day and do a little bit. I would not share this personal stuff, but I need folks to understand that although I am habitually behind, I APPRECIATE EVERY DONATION AND AM SORRY my Thank You’s are so slow.
Again, this is nothing new, with the exception of the pain being much worse lately. We still saved 83 horses this year, 5 cats and a dog. This is all due to YOU, MY AMAZING CHILLY PEPPER FAMILY. I want to make sure everyone truly understands, that me being late sending out Thank You’s is NOT from lack of caring or appreciation. It is literally being overwhelmed by 24/7 chronic pain, lack of internet which makes a 10 minute job take an hour, and just trying to get as much done as I can.
We are still waiting for the beautiful Mercedes to have her foal. Please say a prayer for safe and healthy Mom and Baby.
Please call 509-773-0369 if you would like to help with the vet bill.
