He shared an update on Instagram Monday (March 1), five days after the incident occurred in West Hollywood Feb. 24, by posting two pictures of himself in a hospital bed, one of which showed him using a ventilator. In the caption, Fischer described the aftermath of his shooting and how Asia, one of Gaga's dogs that was able to get away and was later found after the shooting, comforted him until first responders arrived on the scene.
"4 days ago, while a car sped away and blood poured from my gun shot wound, an angel trotted over and laid next to me. My panicked screams calmed as I looked at her, even though it registered that the blood pooling around her tiny body was my own. I cradled Asia as best I could, thanked her for all the incredible adventures we’d been on together, apologized that I couldn’t defend her brothers, and then resolved that I would still try to save them… and myself," he wrote. "I looked backed at my guardian angel. I smiled at her shaking form, thankful that at least she would be okay."
