That is Kane, the black and tan one in the background hamming it up.

Surgery is complete.  Is wasn’t perfect since he did have some spinal degeneration and fusing consistent with his age.  However, the vet was able to remove the flap of bone that was causing his spinal cord to bulge.  His spinal cord is now running straight as an arrow.

Now we are waiting to see if he can fell pain tomorrow.  Even better if he can move his legs tomorrow.  I will take a trip into town tomorrow to meet with his neurologist and of course visit the billing department.  I hate to say this again, but since this wasn’t cheap, if you feel you can afford to help and feel led that way we sure could use the assistance.  We would love to get together about $1,000 from donations if possible. We are also looking into grants and charitable organizations, but have found nothing thus far that will work.

Please keep praying about those grants and also pray that Kane will not only feel pain tomorrow but that he shows signs of movement and control in his hind limbs.  Thanks to everyone!

    Glad to hear the surgery went well!

  4. I am so happy since the vet called this morning and said that Kane can feel his toes. That is a good sign and hopefully the first of many good signs.
