GOOD NEWS FROM GUAPO!!!!

20 Oct

HERE THE TRANSLATION OF THE MAIL THAT MAE, “GUAPO’S PRIVATE NURSE” 🙂 SENT US LAST NIGHT.

Hello Mo and Antonio,
have just sat down, had a “dog’s day”, nonstop back and forth and my legs kill me and since yesterday I have not eaten 🙂

I report to you … then prepare the supper for the doggies and than I’ll collapse onto my bed because tomorrow we must get up early to a small dog to his new family. You see, another long day

GUAPOS diagnosis looks good and more or less as follows: GUAPO BLANCO has sensibility, normal, not too much and also not too little … that shows according to the vets opinion that the dog will walk in the future! The sciatic nerve is also not damaged and neither is the spinal cord. However, he has lost the nerves connection of the tail’s root. He might not be able anymore to wag his tale but there is no physical reason why he should not be able to walk in the future. The diagnosis is positive.

As it looks now as if he will not need surgery. The pain he is in is most likely coming from the fracture of the pelvis (Sacro) and, certainly, it heals up slowly, however it hurts like it would do on a human patient. You cannot imagine yourselves, how many little fractures he has in the basin area, it is terrible … I wil try to mail you an X-ray.

The specialist has also said that the GUAPO BLANCO with more muscular masses will get up and walk.
From now on, he receives no more intravenous medication but only via oral, together with really good home made food and a lot of cuddles. Actually, he has said to us: Cuddle him alot and work with the dog and whe he gets up, start rehabilitation.

Tomorrow Maria and I discuss when GUAPO BLANCO will come to my place, for a moment he is still with her, however, I am responsible for his rehabilitation treatment and physiotherapy even if it takes a very long time.

Next Thursday we go again to the neurologist, so he can do a follow-up on GUAPO fot he next weeks.

I’m terrybly tired but happy, a big hug
Mae
