EDMONTON, A.B. — Still in Edmonton recovering from a dog attack on Christmas Day, Robin Elgie has been transferred to the Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital to start physiotherapy for his hands.
His daughter, Sheryl Elgie, says Robin is now up and walking around, nearly a month after the attack. While he is showing good signs, Sheryl says there have been some concerns.
“The biggest concern for him right now is that his tendons aren’t healing very well right now,” she said, noting there’s hope they may heal soon.
He started physiotherapy yesterday, being transferred from the University Hospital of Alberta, where he was receiving treatment before.
Sheryl says she has been visiting her father, driving from Prince George to Edmonton last week to see him for a few days.
On Christmas Day, two dogs entered the home of Wendy Lee Baker and Robin Elgie, killing their pet cat and seriously injuring both of them. Police arrived and were forced to destroy the dogs, out of fear that they would kill Elgie if they didn’t.
Wendy, who goes by Lee, was treated at the local hospital and has been recovering at home, not well enough to visit her partner in Hospital in Edmonton.
