The wound wrapped around her entire body.
Hit by a car, this sweetheart had only a few hours to live without rescue. And with so much tissue exposed, we knew a conventional bandage might not be enough to save her. Once she was on our treatment table and we could examine both her enormous wound and the excruciatingly painful leg fracture, we were relieved that she had enough skin remaining to close the wound with sutures.
We prepped her for surgery and our surgeon carefully closed the entire wound on her torso. He was also able to close the open fracture wound before plastering her leg.
This ordeal was enough to break anyone’s spirit, but not Molly’s. She was gentle, kind and loving. Every moment. From the first seconds of her rescue, to the kisses she gave once she was healed. How much lovelier the world is with Molly in it.
