Necropsy report on HK.. Sad

From Ed Clark at WCV:
The results of the necropsy performed on HK confirmed our worst fears--that there were internal injuries that would not show up immediately. Indeed, there were multiple injuries, including one we have never seen before...several vertebrae in the middle of HK's spine that had literarily died, and were starting to deteriorate. This, combined with the bruising of his heart and lungs, and the associated hemorrhaging, suggest that his fate was sadly sealed from the instant of the impact with the car. The only good news is that with the damage to the nerves, and the pain medication he was being given, it is unlikely that he was experiencing any pain or discomfort.

Kris, thank you so much for posting this update on HK.

The number and extent of his injuries make me feel even more sad about what happened to him. With such a major spinal injury, surgery and manipulation of his legs could only have made things worse. The vehicle which hit him must have been travelling at some speed to cause so much damage. I know WCV tried their best to help him.  crying
