A 10-year-old Antioch boy, who was attacked by a pit bull, is set to undergo more surgery Wednesday to repair deep injuries to his head and face.

Hunter Kilbourn's mother says her son was responsive Tuesday morning, but felt nauseous and was running a fever.

Kilbourn was mauled Sunday morning while visiting friends at a house on Reseda Drive in Antioch.

The dog has been quarantined for a week by animal control.

A fund established by a family friend has already raised $2,400 to help with Kilbourn's medical costs.
