Miller almost died... he went into cardiac arrest.
Miller almost died! He had his emergency amputation surgery and around 5:22am Miller went into respiratory arrest. HE STOPPED BREATHING! His heart slowed to 10bpm! Doctors were losing him! The critical care team immediately began their efforts and were able to revive him! Miller is now in the CCU and on pain medications for the full limb amputation. He also received another transfusion to support his healing. Please pray for Miller and help if you can.
Miller was seen wandering in the Houston TX area. He hobbled up on a porch and collapsed. Rescuers at New York Bully Crew immediately went into action. His eyes are swollen and filled with pus. I am not sure if his eyes can be saved. First he had an initials transfusion. His leg was destroyed and the wound was rotting and necrotic. It was literally eating his bone. We are told by his doctors that the infection is so critical, the foul odor has assaulted the entire treatment are in the hospital.
He had that emergency amputation surgery to save his life. It was crucial because the infected flesh had become septic. He is also heartworm positive but again, he can not wait for treatment because his life is threatened by this infection. Miller also has scabies. To think of the horrors this young boy has faced at such a young age is heartbreaking. Please help us get Miller the lifesaving medical care he needs to survive.
This type of care will cost many thousands of dollars and that type of funds is simply something New York Bully Crew does not have! We are here to help. I am sponsoring the care of Miller with a custom drawing I created on keychains, mugs, tote bags and aprons. With every custom Miller product you can help sponsoring his care and save his life! This boy deserves a second chance at life.
UPDATE 8/5/19: His surgical site is looking incredible. All of his sutures were removed and his around the clock care continues with his foster family. This is the same foster family who saved Lizzie!
UPDATE 8/19/19: Handsome Miller is acclimating to being a tripod and has learned how to go to the restroom on his own again! YAY! His amazing foster family @pkharveyfosters has given him around the clock care.
UPDATE 9/16/19: Help sponsor is heartworm treatment. Our critical case from Texas, Mr. Miller, has recovered beautifully from his emergency amputation surgery but not he is preparing for Heartworm treatment. He is so young but has been so neglected. Thankfully he has an amazing foster family who is taking wonderful care of Miller. Soon he will be ready for a new forever family. Miller is a very respectful boy and loves everyone. He would benefit greatly from a home with little stress for aftercare with his heartwarming treatments.
UPDATE 10/5/19: He is HW positive so he needs to complete treatment for this and because of that would be best in a calm home. He is dog friendly and loves all people!
