Winnie’s story in numbers…
21 weeks of age, one bump with a car, two broken bones and two punctured lungs; one trip to A30referrals.
A cluster of X-Rays, two chest drains and 300mls of air aspirated. An anaesthetic team and a surgical team, two bone plates and 16 screws (one 2.4mm T plate and one 2.7mm buttress plate, if we’re getting technical.
Lots of suture lines and skin staples.
Some intensive care from the night nursing team, big smiles all round at a puppy taking her first steps following day.
The video shows her just prior to discharge on day two, heading home to recuperate with our very best wishes.
