“She has a slight concussion but I expect her to make a full recovery,” Abraham told the News Star.

He received his veterinary medicine degree in 1980 from Louisiana State University. He went to Louisiana State for a medical degree after working as a veterinarian for 10 years and serving in the Mississippi National Guard for three years.
