Jordan Sheehy, 20, uses her hands to show how she saw the gun that wounded her outside the Spiros nightclub last week. She was seriously injured and is slowly recovering in University Medical Center Brackenridge hospital from a gunshot wound to her abdomen that exited through her back. Jordan, with her mother Linda Christopher by her bedside, recalls the night that a fight broke out at the club and seeing gunfire that wounded her and her boyfriend while standing outside the club on the sidewalk.

Sheehy has not been able to eat for several days and ponders how she will pay for her extensive medical bills with no health insurance. She has a job as a waitress but cannot work while she recovers from her injuries.
