The Story

A poor young husky, now named Lumen, was hit and run over by a car on July 24th.  Due to the financial burden of her needs she was surrendered to Texas Husky Rescue for proper rehabilitation instead of being put to sleep. 

Lumen is a little girl, just under 40 lbs. Her injuries include a seriously dislocated/fractured pelvis, bruised lungs, and some carious scrapes. Texas Husky Rescue transported Lumen to a veterinarian, Aggieland, near Texas A&M University; shortly after arriving at the vet she was transferred to the A&M Animal Hospital due to the severity of her pelvis injuries. Lumen will now be under round the clock supervision. 

The vet student in charge of her case said she possibly has an infection brewing from her injuries so they are going to keep a close eye on that. The displacement/fracture of her pelvis is very bad so they really want to do surgery as soon as they can without rushing it. Right now, they are shooting for Monday and will keep her comfortable with lots of pain medication between now and then.

Lumen Update (7/31):

From Lumen's volunteer angel, "Lumen was doing good today, much better than expected. She has started being very vocal - lots of whining and carrying on - but since she's on plenty of pain meds, we think it's just because now that her pelvis is fixed, she's ready to blow that Popsicle joint and get on with her life. She tried to stand up while I was there, too. With the assistance of a sling, she is getting to go outside and she seems to really enjoy that a lot. Lumen also ate a bunch of chicken breast while I was there, too, which is great because she had zero appetite prior to surgery. All in all, a pretty good day for Lumen!"

Lumen Update (7/30):

This is another view of Lumen's pelvic bone break. She is out of surgery now and recovering. The wound she has on her side was much larger in the inside but they closed it up and attached a drain tube. She is recovering better than expected so far but she has a long way to go.

Thank you for the well wishes and donations today. Please keep sharing so her care can be covered by donated funds. Every little bit counts when added up.

Her volunteer angel will try to get pictures of her post surgery later this week but quiet recovery is also important.

Lumen Update (7/30):

Here is an x-ray of Lumen's broken pelvis (left side shows her tail bones). You can see her pelvic bone is almost piercing her skin. It is one of the reasons why the vets think there may be injuries to her soft tissues and organs. 

Lumen is in surgery at the moment. Please keep sending her your positive thoughts and prayers.
