We had fully expected to say good-bye to Luna today. Her early morning report wasn't great and Mike and I were preparing ourselves for the worst when we went to visit her this evening.
We were surprised to find an alert dog who looked very happy to see us. She can bear some weight on her front two legs and on the right rear. The left rear is not too good yet. Her front left is not very strong, but the doctor thinks we can improve the strength. Her front right is the strongest and she was actually using it to ask for attention. While we were there, she ate at least a cup of food. She is not completely in control of her bladder, but she does let the vet techs know when she needs to go.
I spent a long time massaging and flexing her legs and we told her what a good girl she is to keep up the fight. She is staying another night and hopefully we will be able to bring her home soon. We are now switching our thinking over to how to help her recover at home. I will continue to let you know how she is doing.
Thank you again for the support. I truly believe it has made a world of difference for Luna to have so many people rooting for her.
