Not only the trip was AMAZING on the professional standpoint, with quite a few opportunities, and a couple that are looking REALLY good, but I brought the $$$ to pay for my boy's treatment, and he is already scheduled to go in on Monday!!
Here is briefly what happened, as I haven't slept for the last 72 hours, and my brain is not working to tell in details...
Long story so bear with me - it is AWESOME!!
A long time customer of mine, from a large account (from when I was in the business) took me to dinner with his group and the sales reps, and after that they decided to make me company, as I needed to hang out awake until 4am to leave to the airport (had checked out of the hotel room I was sharing with a friend, and had no room to go back to).
Because it is Vegas, these guys started to give me shots of tequila and lemon drop - lots of people were there, and the alcohol was running loose and fast, and I was afraid of getting sick on the plane, so I told them we should walk around the casino for a while and drink some water to detox...
James, my customer, wanted to play the slots machine, and I told him how bad I felt to watch throw that $$$ away as my kitty was home in need of surgery, and I didn't have the means to pay, or a job to save from... He started to ask about what kind of surgery, how soon did he need it, and we started a conversation about Bugsy. He also asked me how much I needed - I said $350, as it is going to cost me $400,but I already got $50.00 in donations through my site and a friend. Then he made a bet with me - He said:
Carolina - I am going to put $100 in this machine (quarters machine); you keep pushing the button... if by the time we get to $50 it hasn't paid anything, we walk.... But if I win anymore than $400, I will give you the $350 you need.
At that EXACT moment the machine started flashing "Call the attendant" - he had won $1,350!!!!
Right there and then he gave me $350,00 and we were both SO HAPPY!!!!
I was THE HAPPIEST PERSON IN THAT CASINO!
Now, you tell me, what are the odds of that happening????
He then asked me if we could celebrate, and about 6-7 of us drank and danced the night away until 4am - and I did NOT get sick!
***James - YOU ARE THE BEST EVER!!! THANKS FOR SAVING MY BABY'S LIFE! - I WILL BE FOREVER GRATEFUL!***
I got back in Dallas and I already called the dentist, spoke to the manager and she kept her deal of 1/2 price
Bugsy is scheduled for Monday 9:30am.
I am in meowmy's cloud heaven!!!!
All the vibes are appreciated for my little boy's procedure and treatment - I will keep you guys posted, as I know there are others here with cats with gingivitis, and his treatment will not involve a dental removal (new treatment in trial with the FDA).
Oh, the job hunting was phenomenal and I do think I will get a job out of that trip - not only that, but an excellent one, but that is a whole other post, and I am super pooped right now!
***I would also like to thank from the bottom of my heart for the donations made through paypal right here on the site:
All of you made this possible, and I will be forever grateful.......
