Oh what a little fighter. Tons of get well vibes and crossed fingers for a full recoveryWent to see Millie today. The photos don't really tell the story. We did parma ham stretches, she can move her neck in all directions and get her nose right back to her ribs. She was kicking her back legs very well, her tail was stiff at first but by the end it was soft and flexible and moving. Her left front leg not working but the right one the paw can move. Her wound looks good.
She managed to do 3 minutes hydro and there is a video which i hope to see showing her paws on the treadmill and moving. She will be very tired.
While i was there she wanted to get up and in the end she managed to stand up herself, first time.
So today she made a lot of progress. She is fighting and interacting with staff more wanting attention and in hydro the feeling was this is a dog who can walk, won't quite at the moment but should get there.View attachment 119010View attachment 119011View attachment 119012View attachment 119013
yes going to be a long haul for her but they see daily progress, she is booked in for 4 hydro sessions locally so got that in place ready to go. just see how we go. I am so glad we didn't go down this route with Harrison's mum Kim 2 years ago when she was paralysed, the recovery given her arthritis would have been unfair. Millie is younger and as far as we know her skeleton is good, so she just has to recuperate.May the good news continue.....
better than me, that mattress is not that comfy on a hard floor and a snoring poodle plus sharing with another one who steals all the duvet
