We were able to visit with Sheba this morning in the ICU and spend a few minutes talking to her through her kennel. She broke with pneumonia very early this morning and is feeling really exhausted and crummy, but the amazing news is she is still accepting syringe feedings and keeping that little bit of food down. Every day that she wakes up, is able to keep food and fluids in, and continues to show us that she wants to live is a victory in our eyes. The unbelievable vets at the Animal Care Center of Chicago still feel very optimistic that she can pull through... we just need to support her as she rides this medical rollercoaster.
Once she stabilizes, we'll be able to move her out of the ICU and into standard hospitalization, where we'll be able to touch her and spend more quality time with her. We appreciate the continued words of kindness and unbelievable donations more than you'll ever know. We never anticipated Sheba's story to touch so many hearts, and feel so blessed to have such an incredible team of people rooting for her success.
At this point, we have no idea what her medical bills will total, as she's still in the thick of her recovery process and has several more weeks before we can hope to see her discharged from the vet. However, we would like all of Sheba's supporters to know that once she is out of the hospital and her bills have been paid, any remaining donations will be immediately transferred into Willow's Fund, which is a fund designated to treat abused/neglected animals in need of critical care. Your support is changing lives and we will be forever grateful for that.
