Sam Day 3

Sam has been doing well after returning from Dr. Bush's last night. We continue to manage his pain and treat him with broad spectrum antibiotics for his wounds and pneumonia. For the first time since the incident he ate a few bites of food this morning. He is resting comfortably while the inflammation in his spinal cord cause by the bullet fragment resolves which will hopefully allow him to walk again. Dr. Bush feels that he has a very good chance of recovering function in three of his legs. The bullet lacerated a nerve left front limb which may cause permanent damage, it is just waiting game now.

I am happy to report that people have donated over $3700 to Sam's fund. This is a true testament to how much we love our pets; it warms my heart and is why I love coming to work every day. If you would like to donate you may call (202) 363-7300 and mention the Sam Moreno Fund. A sincere thank you from all of us at Friendship.
