Your story brought tears to my eyes. I am thrilled for you all that he is coming around. The love and tenderness you have shown has made a huge difference in your babys recovery. Don't give up. You are doing the right thing. I am very convinced (no offense to any doctors out there) that doctors don't always have the right answers. Keep up the good job you are doing with your little sweetie and know you are in our thoughts and prayers!!

Wow, what patience and love can do for our hurting babies. I'm delighted he is walking again.

Just a suggestion; I found it helpful to cut the bottom 4 or 5" off a tee shirt and loop it under the baby's belly to offer support while his little legs are building muscle again. It works very well as walking aid to an ailing dog. It's just a continuous loop of tee shirt material so it's easy to hold and works great.

Interested in knowing how he improves. This is fantastic news.

I am so happy for your baby and you. It must be amazing to see him standing up. I love the idea of a PT. at least for an eval. The one time I took Sammie to one after surgery she was so knowledgable. His little muscles are atrophied and will need built back up slowly is what we were told.

I've read thru the whole thread to 'catch up... ( and I could have sworn Ihad posted sometime back!...but apparently not.)
I'm THRILLED to see the happy news!!!

My Missy had multiple health issues one of which was disc problems that resulted in partial paralysis in her right hind leg. She didn't use the leg.. but sort of 'dragged it' leading with the top of her foot on ground. We did get a wheelchair ( we called it her 'bike') and I did do 'therapy-walks' with her in that a few times a day. You can see it in the siggy below. I also did massage on her legs a few times a day as well to help with circulation and to help with the muscle atrophy.

She could pee and poop with the cart and seemed to like doing her business in that rather than the body-sling I used to support her for her potty. Eventually she DID start using that leg again!!

You might want to consider getting a long-handled body sling and do therapy walks with her as I'm sure she has muscle atrophy from lack of use. Though her walking is nothing short of miraculous!.... you do want to be careful she doesn't 'slip' from having weak muscles and thus cause a 'back-slide' in this new improvement.

Please do keep us up on the progressive improvement!!!

Tears of joy for you and your fluffbaby! I pray that those little muscles build up and are strong in no time at all.

Thank you everyone!! Bouli is getting better everyday.he is walking alot more, and doing things he did before this all happened. My only problem is because he had a bad experience with the groomer, he won't let me trim him....any suggestions??

I would be so happy that he's getting better, I wouldn't worry about the groomer, even if I had to cut him myself, or have a mobile groomer come so you can be there. I'm happy that he's getting better!!!!
