Just putting the link Hilly did to our Volunteer Vet again.  As Kerran said, there is so much info here and so much to read through. 

Just ro  reiterated  her “chinked down” scenario:    I  think the Vet has really nailed it!!!  And she has made a simple plan for you to follow with the pain meds.  She also described rhe “nerve thing” we mentioned  somewhere on here perfectly!  Need second opinion!

Just looking for an update.  Did you see the link Holly gave you to our volunteer Vet?

We know you have your hands full, but we’re  hoping you’ve  t least had a chance to,follow up on pain meds suggested.  And then, hopefully, a consult with a DIFFERENT Surgeon who can advise about the nerve  issue discussed here and on here and by our volunteer Vet.

All paws crossed fot good news.

((((((Hugs))))))

Sorry everyone!  We had a little emergency and my son was hospitalized on Sunday.  They then transferred him to another hospital in Iowa City.  I haven’t been on here because it’s been a bit hectic.  My Mom has Willow and I check on her several times every day.  She went down the stairs today!!  I’m going to call that a win.

I will return to posting once I’m back home (hoping for tomorrow).  Thank you for your understanding!

Pam

Oh Pam!  Clearly when it rains it pours!!!  Just 

We are all Team Willow, we are all definitely  Team Willow’s Human Brother!!!   Hoping when you get back home that means your son is on the road to recovery.

So yes, take care of what you need to do, okay?

And yes, it IS. a win that Willow did stairs today!!!    Maybe that means you, pr uour Mom, were able to get her some Gabapentin before your latest crises hit. 

Paws crossed fot full recovery  for ALL your pack!

Pam I’m so sorry! I hope your son is doing better. Please keep us posted. And yay for Willow doing stairs, that is HUGE!

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™
