64-year-old disabled woman uses here permitted concealed handgun, with some help from her dog, to stop attacker

The attacker apparently ran away after a shot was fired.  Here is a case from Cincinnati, Ohio:
A disabled 64-year-old woman, who says she just got her license to carry a concealed weapon in June to protect herself, repeatedly fired her gun at an intruder during an attempted home invasion robbery overnight, Middletown police said.   
No one was hurt, and the intruder, a 21-year-old woman is under arrest and facing several charges including aggravated burglary and drug abuse, police said. . . . 
Fletcher told them an intruder came into her home while she was sleeping.  
Her dog, a white Bichon Frise named Benji, woke her, so she scrambled in the dark for the 9 mm Glock handgun she bought in February. She keeps it in the nightstand next to her bed.   
Fletcher, who has had a stroke and has heart problems and diabetes, said she confronted the intruder with her gun as the woman came into her bedroom.   
The woman kept advancing and attacked her, so Fletcher squeezed off a round in self-defense. . . . 
No one was hit. The intruder ran into the back of the house, where she threw an ironing board at Fletcher.   
“She was very powerful. She was high. She was wild. I didn’t want to shoot her, but I didn’t want to get hurt,” Fletcher said. “I told her to stop, but she kept coming at me.” . . .
