Hi All

This update is in appreciation of those souls, who reached out to me, in my time of need. Your blessings has helped me cover some of the hospital costs, for my dog Bolt. He has been home now, for two weeks, after being discharged on the 29th of October 2016. I am glad to announce, that the chest wound appears to have almost healed completely. However, because of the surgical debridement in his groin area, a lot of dead tissue and skin was removed, which left a fist sized shallow hole in the groin area.

We have to clean the area twice daily, with antiseptic, to prevent dirt and infection to develop. The veterinary doctor advised us not to cover the wound. He said that it will gradually heal, and if not, that a skin graft may become necessary.

Aside from this, Bolt has regained his full puppy playfulness and energy. I sometimes fear for his groin wound, as it appears that he almost forget it is there, when he runs around full blast.

I am show overjoyed at his partial recovery. However, i am still saddled with those hospital bills and hope you could still contribute whatever you can, i hope that someday, someone will do the same for you, in your time of need.

God bless you all and thank you.

I just want to add some updates. Bolt has had surgery once again. This time it was to continue the surgical debridement, to his lower abdomen. It appears, that after the initial surgical debridement, weeks ago, the loose skin was covered and patched, but the opening was not stitched , yet. This was done, to allow the edges of the skin to heal enough, so it won't tear, after the wound was stitched.

However, their was still some more dead skin that developed again, around the edges, which had to be removed. Well, the chest wound, that was stitched, a week ago, is healing nicely. The lower abdominal wound, has also been stitched, following the recent debridement, and it was indicated by the vet, that Bolt may make it back home two weeks later.

The hospital bill is huge. Funds did not materialize as we anticipated. Friends were far an few in our time of need. However, with your help and god's, we will weather this crisis also.

I have realized, that the amount requested, has been vastly overestimated, therefore i have reduced my campaign target to a much lower amount. The amount i hope will be donated, should cover most, if not all Bolt's medical costs.

May God bless you all, for your contribution.

Many thanks,

Francis Jaftha

Hi, i am grateful to those of you, who have since contributed to Bolt's medical costs. We had to take Bolt to the Panorama Veterinary Clinic & Specialist Centre. He will have to stay several weeks. Large areas of dead skin had to removed , via surgical debridement, around the infected puncture wounds in his chest and lower belly.

The healing process is going to take a while. Thank you all. Francis.
