3 Weeks out…..

Yesterday Oscar spent the day at the MedVet hospital having a full day of physical therapy! This full day was included in the massive amount we paid for his surgery (Thank God)! It absolutely amazed me the things they did with him, we 100% felt as if he was getting the same care a human would have recieved. He did the underwater treadmill which he loved and then he had laser light therapy. This is where he sat under a red beam (photons maybe?) and what this light does is give him a deep tissue massage, stimulate his nerve growth and break up unhealthy scar tissue on his spine. I mean how amazing! Luckily Matt was home yesterday (He left this morning) and we had a 45minute appt. with his therapist to go over his new at home recovery plan!

We know that he is trying to use his back legs when we take him out at home….. but when they had him walk in for us I was shocked, sadden to see him like that and unbelievably happy all at the same time! Watch this video….

The plan is in 4 weeks we hope to have him walking alone and being able to balance his weight evenly! This little guy is a fighter and we are all so happy to see how far he has come in only 3 weeks!
