Hopefully Final Echo Update

Echo is making slow but steady progress albeit in very small increments. When I met with his vet to discuss him and his progress a week ago it was her opinion that being around 70% improved at one month is exceptional. She said it may be another two months before he is fully (?) recovered. We are to keep doing what we are doing to keep him from any re injury or aggravation. If we can do that he should recover and be normal.

He goes from day to day. He will be doing very good one day and the next day his back legs will be a little wobbly. His vet was encouraged with his progress so far and anticipates a good recovery. The hardwood floors that were exposed are all covered with throw rugs to keep him from slipping again. We keep him from jumping which is something she said he should not do under any circumstances. He was never a jumper anyway so he makes our job easier.

From the first day we adopted him he has slept with me. We stayed in a pop-up camper trailer and he slept with me. After all these years it would be impossible to get him to do otherwise so we put the mattress on the floor so he doesn't have to jump to get in bed with me. A little rough for this old body but good for him. Amazing what we do for our fur family....

Good advice. How did you figure out the "right" size, ie not to big and not too small? -Barbara

Glad Echo is up to 70-80% better. That is amazing! It is all your & Carol's TLC.

It shows how much you truly love Echo to put the mattress on the floor for him. I am happy to hear he is recovering so well. He's a beautiful boy!

you must of read my mind, I was just wondering how he was doing, glad to hear he is coming along, just like us the older we get the longer it takes to heal.
