Howdy Mates. I'm here to let you know how my little brother Rory is going. He's been trying to walk again butt it is so difficult for him and he doesn't know why his legs are all wonky. I know I always say he's a real wimpy guts but this time I am SO PROUD of him.
He NEVER complains. He ALWAYS tries to help mum and dad when they walk him and even though his poor foot drags along and gets sore, he NEVER gets grumpy. Please don't worry though, mum puts a boot on his foot she made herself! GASP!! I know. She's never sewn anything that has EVER stayed together butt she made a soft shoe sort of thingy for Rory's foot and it worked! Now he drags his foot butt it is protected and his sores are starting to heal. Mum puts cream on them every time he comes inside after a walk.
Rory, mate, don't lick off your cream.
Over the last few days, Rory can now stand unaided while he has a drink. We stand alongside him with his towel under his belly in case he feels wobbly. He can bear some weight on his right back leg and rests his dodgy left back leg on the ground.
He uses his right back leg most of the time when he walks but it isn't 100% strong and we still support his weight. He is swinging his left back leg forward in a walking motion at times. We get really excited and cheer him on.
Sometimes Rory chases rabbits in his sleep and runs with both back legs!! Yay! It gives us hope and gives him some exercise too!
I just want my brother to get well. I know it will take time. He has come a long way over the last 11 days. See ya soon mates.
Here's a photo of mum's arm now, hehehehe.
Take care mates.
No worries, and love, Stella and Rory
