Omd you poor thing! I know this does not make you feel any better but my tavlet is the same way. My silly cell phone is quicker!!  Frustrating to hurry up and wait. I wish I knew how to speed them up. I even got a huge memory card but it did not speed things up.

Wow you can really see him react when she manipulates that knee.  When she flexes the foot he doesn’t react.  There is something going on in that joint for sure.  The “drawer” test when she moved it side to side and said it was tight was good but Frankie didn’t like it at all.

hoping to hear some positive news for you & him

Sweet Sally, Freakin’ Handsome Frankie and darling Helpful Blind Nurse Myrtle

To say that you have your challenges right now, is a bloody understatement!!! Thanks for taking the time to video some of Frankie’s ‘testing’. Frankie did so very well didn’t he?! Good fella! You are dealing with all of this like a champ Sally! You have one of the most pawsitive attitudes! It’s no wonder you have such happy-go-super-lucky dawgs!

Frankie darling, I’m sorry you have an upset tummy love, I do hope you feel better really soon!aw-shucks

You are all in my prayers and I am sending massive hugs! Keep us in touch with how you are all doing and we shall be here for you!

Finally….one more video.  Just posting these as a way of sorta keeping a record of where we are at any point in his three legged advemtures!

Also, all the videos posted here can show anyone interested,  the value of Rehab and  what a fine tuned speciality  it is.  Obviously  the ones posted above are focused on specific  techniques to figure out what’s  going on, as opposed  to actual rehabilitative  exercises.

THANKFULLY he’s not quite as sore as yesterday and last night.  Still jas two very “fatigued  legs and one barely being used at all.   Looking forward to getting past the cause and focusing  on the solution!

And Petra, if you and others see any  pawsitive  attitude pop through, it’s  ONLY because of the incredible  lpve and support of everyone here❤   Each of you are my CHAMPIONS, MY HEROES,  MY ROLE MODELS FOR COURAGE 😎

Here’s  theRehab Bet finishing up.  I love the look Frankie gave  here…he REALLY had enough!

Oh Frankie you are SUCH a good boy! I cringed watching that manipulation, even though I know she’s the pro and doing things right, it still looks like it hurts. I would have wailed like a banshee, but not you Super Frankie!

Sally, you done good by recording these, thank you for sharing this experience. It’s what nobody ever wants to go through, but you are really educating us on what it takes to pinpoint a problem like this.

Fingers crossed for good test results from the tap. Keep us posted. 

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

Gosh, he’s extraordinarily obliging, isn’t he! (You watching, Meg???) You can see how much he trusts you all, which is really moving actually. Can’t help feeling that much manipulation must have ruled out a lot of things pretty definitively. Agreed, here’s to getting past the cause and focusing on the solution!

Love to all!

Gosh, Frankie is such a good boy 😍

Enduring that sort of manipulation isn’t for the faint hearted … but he went through it like a pro 🏆

And that look at the end 🤨😅

Team Frankie cheering like maaaad 🎊🎊

😘😘🐮✨💫🌟🌹
