All is well for this little chimp suffering of osteomyelitis…
Remember, this young primate got a pellet gone through the right humerus last year and when he arrived at our sanctuary we had to work on his arm immediately and we had only two possibilities: either amputate or save the sick arm…
Today, the wound is clean, hair has grown back and Tommy climbs and uses his arm unlike any other infant chimp of his age. We really don’t regret these long hours of surgery and of cleaning up the wound daily as the result is now wonderful!
Tommy’s recovery is a miracle ! He has lost quite some hair because of his 8-month-antibiotic-treatment but he is doing extremely well and has found a place among other infants of his own kind!

We love you, Tommy!
