Please send positive vibes Please send positive vibes

My little pup Kamora is really sick and needs all the good thoughts coming her way. I just got back from the vet where they told me she’s anemic and they aren’t sure why. She’s getting a blood transfusion, but they say that she could die. She was fine just two days ago so this is a shock to me.
