NATIONAL PIT BULL VICTIM AWARENESS DAY - FRANKIE FLORA - MAULED FOR 20 MINUTES BY HIS AUNT'S PIT BULL
Frankie’s injuries were extremely severe. He had 4 sections of his head removed down to the scull. They had to put donated skin on his head to put him back together again until his own flesh and tissue repaired itself. His Right check was removed leaving him with missing nerves tissue, and glands. His left check was ripped open. They had to take skin from Frankie’s Leg and put it on the side of his forehead/head. They have Tried lifting his eye a few times. They had to sew his hand together leaving him with no feeling in his pointer finger. They removed one of his bald spots but now has to have balloons put in his head to stretch the scalp for the others to be removed. Frankie was left with some hearing loss. They have revised some of the scarring. Frankie faces many more surgeries to repair the damage that the dog has given him. We are not sure when the next procedure is. Until then we apply a lot of scar medicine to Frankie’s face and put gel sheeting on his leg to help the wound.
