UPDATE: December 27th, @ 4:30 PM:

"Journey is HOLDING her own thanks to all of her angels and her 2 'godmoms!' She is eating very small meals – 8-10 a day; taking her meds like a trooper; up to drinking about 1/3 of what I would like to see her intake yet is now having two pees a day; two bms a day; and is LOVING the snuggling and cuddling with all of her soft items! She is really coming out of her shell and has an 'imp' side for her crate is beside BHRR's Goliath and she has figured out pretty fast that she can make him bend to her will! LOL She is having more restful sleepies now, not exhaustive naps and as we jumped on the meds for her spiked temp/'productive' breathing – she is doing much better there too. She is showing some energy and wanting to walk about the house for very short spells and just loves rubbing her body and face over anything soft and cushiony! Her one wound is not granulating as we would like to see but she has no reserves to give and she still has a few more days before we need to make that final decision to suture or not. I do not want to see her going under any anaesthetic right now or sedation and may her body continue to fight the good fight! SHE has now made it past several very HUGE and key milestones and while not even remotely to being out of the woods; she is a walking MIRACLE! GO JOURNEY GO!
Journey is making her miracle journey along her path to being happy and healthy! I was able to have a four hour stretch of sleep last night myself for she had her first EVER truly relaxing and restful sleep herself.
This girl is going to be taking numbers and names when she is up to speed!! AND I cannot wait!!! THANK YOU to each one of you for being there for her! I read your well wishes, I tell her all the time that great people do exist and that hands can be loving not hurtful or mean."

I know that I have said this before and I shall say it again; I am not above or below begging and pleading for the animals in need. AND I am doing so now, so close to XMAS; yet I am asking on my knees if need be; for people to consider donating to her vast medical bills.

ALL I can give you in turn at this time; is my deepest and most heartfelt and sincerest of thanks along with those of BHRR's Journey; for she would have died out there; and soon. Be it from a car hitting her; starvation or her wounds or a coyote attack or even from some person shooting her; she would have died and it would not have been long before it happened. There is nothing to her body right now….absolutely nothing but skin and bones. There is not even a lot of hair.
