Patient Story

Dora Pennington

The family dog mauled Pennington, 54, of Buckner, Mo., on the morning of Nov. 16, 2015, causing significant injury and profuse bleeding to her left leg. When First Responders transferred her to the Centerpoint Medical Center Level II Trauma Center, Pennington was hypothermic from fighting the dog for hours, had bite injuries covering her extremities and was in hemorrhagic shock.  Following amputation of her left foot and ankle, Pennington spent 13 days in the ICU and underwent multiple surgical procedures.  Discharged from the hospital on Dec. 5, Pennington continued her rehabilitation and wound healing at a long-term acute care facility. She has undergone additional surgeries for various wounds at Centerpoint Medical Center and continues therapy while awaiting her prosthesis.
