Valentino Update: The Money Has Been Raised!! Thank You!!

Thank you to all of the Argus blog readers for your support of Valentino's surgery fund. As of Tuesday, April 20, $770 had been raised ($500 single donation, $200 single donation, plus smaller donations totaling $70).

Then an amazing thing happened....A donor stepped forward and pledged to cover the remaining balance!

The next step for Valentino is a full set of radiographs (8-10 of them) of the fractured splint bone in order to determine the best method for surgical correction. SAFER (the organization that is helping Valentino) is waiting for direction from the surgeon as to where she wants these radiographs done, here at home or up at UC Davis.

From there, we hope to proceed with a surgery date!

Thank you! Updates to come as things progress.
