Better..and Better

Abby is doing much better. Yesterday was our first day of no cortisone shots. We were to watch her and make sure she didn't seem any worse, and I can proudly say she is as happy as a lark. She is pooping lots now, and very happy.

Her ability to stand is getting better and better. Last night when Matt came home, which is the most exciting part of the day for Abby, she stood right up and tried to take off. This didn't work out too well, but I must say it was her best attempt.

There is a lot going on this weekend, and I am excited to get the Absters out and about. I have a friends with a nice dog bag, so I might see if Abby will fit in this, or else Petco has these dog packs. There look convenient, but I just don't know how cool I would look with that on my chest:) I really shouldn't care, though.

She Stood Up!

Abby and I went over to my Cousins house last night to look at his yard. He has a 3-year-old, Kyra, who loves Abby. While Kyra was jumping around singing, and being a 3-year-old Abby must have gotten so excited and determined to get up and play that she just suddenly stood up. My Cousin and I were just talking about how sad she must be, and out of the corner of my eye I saw her trying to stand. I just watched and pretty soon after a good struggle she was on all fours. She then tried to move forward and her hind end fell to the side, but my leg was there for her to lean on.

This is very exciting, for all of us! She did it again while we were all laying in our bed. I think the soft ground made it easier for her.

All of your thoughts and prayers are helping.

Oh, and she pooped too!!! Its been about 3 days!

Abby Update

Abby is doing better. She is here at work with me so that I can make sure she gets to her food, and water. I also carry her outside every now and then. I can usually tell when she needs to go potty, because when I ask her she perks right up.
She seems to be balancing very well, and sits up a lot. When I stand her up and flatten out her feet she can stand on her own until she tries to walk, and then she know to sit back on her bottom, where as before she just fell frontwards or to her right side.
She is definitely trying as hard as possible to get better, and I can tell this because she is trying to move a lot more, where as before she didn't at all. This morning when we got to work she got all excited when the car stopped. and when I grabbed her kennel out of the back set she tried to get up. and before I knew it she was rolling around in there. It was really sad, because she had no control, but at the same time it was exciting to see that she is trying.
everyone here at work is very concerned for her, and I have a couple of friends working on some energy work. One lady I recently introduced myself to is helping a lot with message techniques to help with her blood flow, and removing bad energy. I have always had a spiritual side, to me, and I strongly believe in miracles.

Everything will work out...I am very hopeful.

This video brings a smile to my face...she will soon be back to this state!

Prayers for Abby

I know it has been a while since I have blogged, but I now want to ask everyone for their prayers. My little pricess, Abby has suddenly become paraylized. She lost the function on her right side On Saturday night. It happened in a five mintue time span and continued to get worse throughout the night. It is the craziest thing.
We are giving things time, and filling her with love in hope that function will return. She had a bad day on Saturday, but her happy spirit has returned since. The vet thinks it may be something called fibrocatilaginous emolism melapothy. This has something to do with her vertebrae fluids. There is no known cause, but seems to be caused from excersise. She is not in any pain, but just hurt because her little hyper body wants to run around!

Your prayers would be greatly appreciated as we try to heal her back to her active self!

Thank you in advance,
