Florton was released from Victoria Hospital on Saturday (July 5) after being hospitalised for close to one month.
She underwent a risky surgery on June 27 in which doctors were able to locate a hole in her lung that was causing severe internal bleeding.
The victim’s mother Heather Charles told St Lucia News Online (SNO) today (July 7), that once the operation was complete, Florton started to show signs of recovery.
Charles said she is happy and thankful that her daughter is out of hospital and is on the road to recovery. She said Florton would need proper care so that she can recover fully from the injuries she sustained during the stabbing incident.
Charles explained that the teenager is still in pain because of the stab wounds, but the pain is not as severe as before. According to her, Florton is now able to eat a bit more. The teenager has also expressed happiness that she is home.
Florton was stabbed multiple times in Pavee, Castries by 18-year-old Stephon Joseph of Pavee, Castries on Thursday (June 12). She sustained 11 stab wounds, one of which ruptured her lungs.
Florton also underwent a successful eye surgery.
