More POTP for Rory please and an Update

Howdy Everyone.  Well it's been an extremely emotional 36 hours.  Rory is still at the Specialist clinic in the city.  He is about an hour's drive away from us and it seems like more.  I went to visit him today.  He was very excited to see my son and I and although he cannot stand he wiggled and snorted and was very happy.

As it stands today, he is paralysed in his left back leg and his right back leg has some movement which apparently is a good sign.  He cannot stand unsupported.  His diagnosis at the moment is an embolism in his spine.  He has no pain whatsoever.  There is no sign of disc damage.  At the moment we are waiting and hoping to see some improvement by Friday.  

I can assure all our friends far and wide, he has had the best checks available and I have complete faith in his specialist.  She has been marvellous, supportive and so caring with our big boy.

I sat with him, loved him, told him to get better real soon as we are all heartbroken he is not home with us.  He slobbered on me to make me feel better.  He ate some biscuits I took there and the Specialist laughed and said what a mum's boy he was, wanting to be hand fed.  She said he had been wonderful, gentle and no trouble whatsoever.  

We miss our boy.  We want him home.  We must wait. 




I can't thank you all enough for your support.   

Take care.  Love Carol

  8. No pain is a huge thing. Now to get the big old doofus back home where he can get all the loving he wants. That said, I would guess he is getting celebrity treatment at the hospital. Not every day they have such a magnificent patient. Sending hugs.

  18. Hi C, thank you for the update. We're very glad that there's no disc damage. We're hopeful that it'll be "all up from here" and that Rory will be fine. I sat with Sam many times during his stay at the hospital and always brought him treats from home. My jacket (with my scent) kept him warm and comforted when I wasn't at the clinic. We feel for you and your family and I'm sure that our wish is the same as everyone who's been by your blog, that Rory will fine and back to his old self soon.

  25. Carol,
    Oh goodness, this is just terrible! Poor Rory, we too love him so much, he's such a lovely boy! I can't believe how spontaneously this just happened, but I've heard of some dogs getting over paralysed limbs, I think. At least his back right is moving, I'm sure he'll be back again in no time!
    I'm just so sad, I hope he's fine for Christmas!
    Tell Stella we're thinking of her and all of yous, because you must be missing him awfully.
    Pippa :)
