 SODDY DAISY, TN
Many know and love Noodle from his blog   https://noodle4president.wordpress.com. Jamison is his feline brother. On Monday, Dec. 26, Jamison was attacked by Rudee, the 90 pound black mouthed curr who has been living with the family while they try to find him another home.  (Prior to this, he has never shown any signs of aggression.) 

He has 3 pelvic fractures and his left leg was initially paralyzed though he is now showing signs of mobility. He had surgery the night of the attack to insert 4 drains and to place 14 sutures.

Jamison battled hypothermia on and off for a week but his temperature finally stabilized on Monday, January 2nd. He requires force feedings hourly as he is still not eating willingly. His prognosis remains guarded.

He is currently on 2 antibiotics, an appetite stimulant, 2 pain medications, and a liver supplement as his liver stopped functioning properly due to lack of food intake during the first 4 days after the attack. 

Jamison is set to go for a 2nd surgery on January 10th to remove necrotic tissue in his abdomen.

The family has incurred almost $3000 in vet bills so far and there are many more to come for Jamison's recovery. Please see the breakdown below.

Noodle's Mom set up a gofundme account when my dearly loved schnauzer Lexi came down with cancer, and we were facing upwards of $2500 in medical bills. So many folks helped! Every donation was greatly appreciated and added up to ease the financial burden. Won't you please help Noodle and Jamison's family now? If you would like to avoid the admin fees, you can go to my blog www.lexitheschnauzer.com and use the email address you will find on the sidebar to request their address. I know it is not always possible to help financially, so I ask everyone to please keep this family in your thoughts and prayers.

This is the worst possible update to have to write - Jamison passed away on Monday, January 9th.

His injuries were just too severe for his body to recover from.

Compound his passing with the extraordinary financial burden (Total: $3,291.23), you can imagine how tough things are for his family right now.

Please, if you can help in any way, the family would be extremely appreciative. Again, you can also contact me via www.lexitheschnauzer.com if you would like to send a check directly to them to avoid the administrative costs.
