Thursday night we received a critical request for assistance.

Edna, a 5 yr old Pittie mix with a bullet wound, collapsed lung and blood clots. This girl needed an immediate Thoracotomy.

Edna was in trouble and needed help right away.

Thanks to our amazing donors who contribute to the General Fund, we were able to make a pledge of $500 towards the cost of treatment.

Edna's mama, Fani, will be along today to tell us all about her special girl and how she is recovering.


Thank you all for continuing to support IMOM and helping Pets In Need.

I just got off the phone with the vet, he is pleased with Edna's progress, but the next 24 hrs were critical and she was not out of the woods!  They had to remove her entire left lung!  The bullet, entered the top of her front left leg, traveled thru her lung and is sitting next to her stomach.  I will post updates as I get them.  I don't have any pics with me, but will try to get one as soon as I can,  thank you everyone for your support, it truly helps at times like this to know there are good people out there!

Edna is doing well, she has been up walking around, she is off the oxygen, but still has a chest tube for draining the fluid in her chest cavity, but all her stats are good and the staff there are giving her lots of love and attention.  I am an over the road truck driver and had to get back to work, my sister has kindly volunteered to take care of her when she gets out of the hospital, until I get back at the end of the month.   Will send updates as I can, as I don't always have Internet connections at my stops.

Edna has to go back in for emergency surgery, they did not remove the bullet last time and now they think it is damaging her liver.... Can't afford more surgery!
