Penelope is a 5 year old Great Dane who needs your help!

I rescued my Great Dane Penelope from a hoarding, abuse, and neglect situation 3 years ago. She was so shy and fearful they told me if I didn't take her, they'd euthanize her. I took her and rehabilitated her to the loving, open, extremely affectionate and gentle dog she is today. While I was out of town and she was staying with my parents, she ate some palm fronds and became very sick. She wouldn't eat, had severe diarrhea and was vomiting blood. The emergency vet put her on fluids, gave her medication to settle her bloody stomach but she wasn't safe yet. Her blood work was ok other then the severe dehydration. Yet, she still has diarrhea and won't eat. So far the bill is over $800. I have nothing. Now she is being transferred to another vet who will put her back on fluids and do more tests which is vital to find out what else is wrong with her. Penelope has been the light of my life since I got her. She had a horrible first two years of life and has the scars to prove it. Everyone who meets her falls in love with her gentle and loving soul. I'm worried that if I can't get her care, she will die. Please donate anything you can. I'd be eternally grateful.
