I went back to the Stark County Veterinary Emergency Clinic this evening to check on Jethro and his partner, Officer Ryan Davis. Ryan is wiped out – he’s been up for about 36 hours straight. His son was going to stay at the clinic with Jethro while Ryan’s wife takes him home, at least long enough for a shower, but I’m hoping he’ll also be able to get some sleep.
I was allowed to go into the back room to see Jethro briefly. It’s clear he’s still struggling, but I’m told he’s doing better with each passing hour. His left eye is starting to show normal responses to light, but his right eye still reflects the increased pressure inside his skull. He is by no means out of the woods, and is still heavily sedated. His breathing was labored, but he was resting, no doubt due to the heavy-duty medication.
He is in the Taj Mahal of kennels – all glass walls and very spacious! I was impressed. The clinic recently moved into their current space when they outgrew their last home, and it is a vast improvement. I haven’t needed their services for my own dogs since they moved, so it was good to get to see the facility.
Please keep praying, and don’t forget to contribute to the GoFundMe campaign if you possibly can.
Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
