Patient Updates

Dwayne spends more time in the water than hauled out. He's gained a lot of weight and is looking fantastic. He'll probably be released soon...

Dwayne has been moved to a pre-release pool. He is eating well on his own, and diving for fish thrown into the pool.

Dwayne is very curious and alert, doing well during his tube-feeds and enjoying his baths. He's also beginning to lose his lanugo, the soft hair still covering most of his body.
