I’ve walked Kane about 3 times today and noticed something that has me positively giddy. If I let the tops of his feet graze the grass or the smooth tile floor in our house he starts to move his legs just a little (about a 10-15 degree range of motion) back and forth as if he was walking. He still can’t put any weight on them like that- he only places weight on them when he locks them out which is happening more and more. I was so happy I brought him in and yelled for my wife to come watch. It was really cool to see him move his legs.
Also, I’ve discovered that it seems much more productive when I do his physical therapy right before I take him out for his walk. He locks out longer and moves his legs more if I’ve worked with him on his legs before we go out. No if only he would let me sleep through the night. Oh, and now he has complete control of his bladder again which is a mixed blessing since now I can’t force him to empty his bladder anymore and so I have to take him out more- as he has always been a tinkle here and tinkle there kind of dog.
I would also like to thank everyone for their help financially, emotionally, and spiritually. Thanks to you guys and the guys over at SND we are almost half way done paying off his bill.
