Lady Gaga’s dog walker Ryan Fischer said he has had part of his lung removed after being shot in the chest by a dognapper in Los Angeles.
In a lengthy Instagram post, Fischer wrote that his initial recovery looked positive.“With the chest tube removed (which I can only equate to an alien baby extraction) and my bloo oxygen stable, the journey outside to recover with loved ones began.”
But he also said that he then started experiencing “strange hissing and glugging coming from my chest every time I took a breath”.
“It became quite clear that my lung was not healing,” he went on to say, “and the bullet wound had scarred my tissue like a burn”.
Fischer further said that when he was wheeled into surgery to have parts of his lungs removed, he had “finally accepted my recovery had become anything but a straight line”.
In the end, he wrote, “The journey is hard, it’s assuredly painful, and questionable choices that no longer serve me like wearing skinny jeans are made. But I try. And somewhere within that, I find the absurdity and wonder and beauty this life offers us all.”
Mr. Fischer was walking Lady Gaga’s three French bulldogs in Hollywood in February when a man carrying a semi-automatic handgun shot him. The gunman shot Fischer and he and another person took two of the dogs Koji and Gustav. The third dog ran away and police later recovered her.
