Sorry about the length of time it has taken to post an update, but here it is!
Meeks has been in rehab 3 days per week, and at our vets for the remaining 2 days. Fortunately my wife and I both work, and he needs to be in an environment where he is worked on daily.
So first off, as of Christmas morning, he made a huge breakthrough, and was able to stand up on his own for the first time since the surgery. Also, he is able to stand, under his own power, for 10 minutes at a time, and under minimal assistance, loves to walk around our yard.
What an emotional ride this has been.....we know now that he will make a full recovery, thanks to my vet and also the London Ontario Emergency Vet Clinic, where the rehab is performed.
The unfortunate truth is that this has cost about 15,000 to date. My heart really goes out to those who simply cannot afford the costs, as we have been stretched to the absolute limit!
But there is now a BRIGHT light at the end of the tunnel, and he is expected to make a full recovery! Thanks for all the positive feedback, and I promise to keep this post updated much more frequently!
