The Sanger woman injured in the mass shooting in Las Vegas nearly a week ago underwent dialysis treatment Saturday morning as she continues recovery from a gunshot wound in her abdomen.
Jessica Milam’s father, Ed Milam, said Saturday afternoon that Milam was showing “some signs of response.”
Her medication was being reduced and “her blood numbers look encouraging” as she underwent the dialysis treatment, he had said earlier in the day.
Milam, 23, had surgery on Friday night to repair a hole and remove a bullet fragment from her lung.

Now it’s wait-and-see how she responds to the treatment through the weekend, her father said.
Milam previously had been moved to an intensive-care unit and was hooked to a ventilator on Thursday at a Las Vegas hospital, her father said. That same day, local pastors led prayers in Sanger and a card and poster for Milam’s family was passed around for signatures.
Fifty-eight people died and nearly 500 more were injured at the Route 91 Harvest Festival on Oct. 1, the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.
A GoFundMe donation page was set up by one of Milam’s friends to help with her recovery.
Milam is a Disneyland employee who assists guests and helps operate attractions in Tomorrowland, according to a friend.
