Prognosis ----

It's been forty-eight hours.

Peanut is not walking on her ankles, but on her paws ... THAT's a relief.

She is wobbly and unsteady when standing up to pee or poop but less than even yesterday .... THAT's a relief.

Peanut is comfortable in her crate, whines only when I'm out of sight ..... THAT's a relief.

She doesn't object to being carried and to being allowed on the ground only for elimination duties ... THAT's a relief.

Doctor said, today, that she must remain crated until Saturday - a whole week from the beginning.  Then she can start being out of the crate if we are around to watch her ... but no STAIRS for a total of four weeks and no excited playing.

Doctor is pleased with her progress .... THAT's relief.

So it is a day of relief and hope.  She is getting better and should have total recovery.


Thank you, all, for you good wishes and prayers.

It's a warm and muggy day but beautiful.  You have a beautiful day.

Hi Connie,
I am glad to hear that your lovely and dear Peanut are better now. I can imagine how you was concerned and anxious.
I will pray and send positive thoughts to your dear friend.
Big hugs.
