Bolton Update

From Intensive Care to Foster Care in just 3 week.

Bolton has been with us since Friday 20th of May, just over 2 weeks.
We were called out to rescue him from a garden where he was found injured dragging his body.
Before he could have general ananesthesia for xrays we spent the weekend nursing him in intensive care on our Critical Care Ward.

We had an emergency situation with his bladder that was full of blood and clots which he was unable to pass.
An indwelling catheter was placed and left in place for a couple of days.

When Bolton was stable enough for xrays they revealed a horrendous fracture of the left femur which we believe was over 12 weeks old prior to xrays, goodness knows how he sustained himself and survived on the streets for so long.

As he is learning to walk again there are no more plans for surgery at this stage.
His right leg had no sensation and we have been working really hard to help him improve function and mobility in this leg using TENS Therapy and physiotherapy.

Today Bolton has gone into Foster Care with one of our amazing volunteers.
You can see in the last video that his walking is really improving.
