So check this out. Gabriel, the service dog I posted about before who helps his veteran Jake, is going home! He’s not out of the woods entirely but he’s well enough to maintain outpatient care at his family’s home in Texas. This is a huge step for this sweet dog!
Get out the tissues and read more of their story here.
Also! Our friends in Missouri, headed by J’s buddy Ximena (and my buddy too!) raised $650 for 4 Paws for Ability!! This is awesome! Thank you to everyone who ran and for honoring my son and this amazing organization that does so much for children and veterans.
J’s health is still one fat question mark. He’s well, but no one can decide if he actually has/had pneumonia or not. There’s definitely evidence of inflammed bronchia and his energy is off alongside his behavior but there’s nothing that definitively screams “infection”. Meanwhile, the heat is kicking his wee bottom. He napped for 4 hours today, mid day, but was still ready for bedtime at close to a normal hour. I keep him in cool places as much as possible but it’s tough stuff.
That’s all the current news that’s fit to print. Never a dull moment!
