An Update On Alan 8-6-07

Recommended Posts

I have been long overdue on reporting to you on Alan's progress but I hope this was worth the wait....he is doing AWESOME! He still does not have full use of that leg but life is almost back to normal for him...the only thing he can't do is walk up stairs :( He still goes to hydrotherapy 2 times a week.

So, here are some photos of his latest hydrotherapy session...he is so unsure about the Vet Tech! Here he is waiting for the tank to fill up...


Here he is mid-session


and his session is about to end, 18 minutes later!!


It's hard to believe that 2 months ago he couldn't even stand up on his own!


Here is the latest video...you will have to excuse Brian's video taking ablilities...he thought it would be a good idea to turn the camera halfway thru the video :rolleyes:

Alan has just the sweetest face ever! I'm so glad he's doing well. It makes my heart all warm and fuzzy to see how he's progressed :)

Glad he's doing so well... but he sure doesn't seem to be looking forward to his hydrotherapy session.

That is outright amazing! And I'm willing to give Brian the benefit of the doubt that he must have thought we could see his back legs better when he turned the camera . . . . Brian, just take it straight on and we'll all be happy and no one will have to come hurt your knees.

What a wonderful update! I love the pictures of Alan. He looks so determined in the last photo. He may eventually surprise you and be able to climb stairs too. And even if he can't, that smile on his face (and yours) is all that matters.
