A very lucky and VERY brave boy!
Wes had an unfortunate run-in with a stick while out on a jog with his mum. A poorly-positioned stick became lodged under his armpit and slid under his skin. In a stroke of pure luck, the stick slid over the top of his ribs, protecting his vital organs and keeping all wounds superficial.
Wes was rushed to us to remove the offending object and tend to his wound. The procedure was a clean success and Wes walked away with no major damage! Wes showed incredible bravery throughout his time with us despite the undoubtedly painful and scary situation. We commend him for his resilience, and for putting his trust in our team to help him on his way to recovery. Wes recently visited to check in on his healing, and though still a little tender, he's back on his feet and bright as ever!
