While still having a guarded prognosis St Nicholas Abbey has had his best week since his initial surgery!
Since the pin removal his weight bearing on the injured leg has improved gradually and he is walking as well as can be expected with a cast.
St Nicholas Abbey seems more content, lying down several times a night to rest and his appetite is excellent so he is starting to thrive.
His temperature has stabilised and blood work has normalised.
Surgeons Dr Kelly & Dr O’Brien are more upbeat on his prognosis however there are many weeks to go before St Nicholas Abbey is out of danger.
