I have the most amazing blog followers ever. I can't thank you enough for your thoughtful comments on here about Buddy, your emails, your twitter messages and your facebook messages. I've read each and every kind word to Tom and Buddy in hopes that they would make an impact!
And I think it's working...
We started the steroids yesterday morning and saw a change in him immediately. He's like a different dog. No more dragging his front paws, very very few falls. His tail is wagging like crazy and he's crying for food and treats (which makes us believe that he's on the mend). The last few times that we've taken him out, he's walked unassisted (we'd been holding his front legs up with a towel wrapped underneath him) and Tom isn't carrying him except for going down the front porch stairs (he's going up them on his own). Our biggest things right now is to keep him as lazy as we can - he seems to want to just run now that he's found his legs, but he still looks like a drunk dog walking so he's not there yet!
I think it's going to be a long recovery, but I'm very confident that there's going to be a recovery... that's not something I was certain of the other day.
Again, I can't say enough about the support of all of you. I'm so touched by the support of all of my friends... virtual or not! You are amazing!!!
