July 16 update on Barron and his new xrays

by Bonnie Hornick

Just wanted to let you know Barron had his new x-rays yesterday and the surgeon is happy, very happy, with his progress.

I could see the bone forming and growing around the implant, he also said he is regaining muscle in the leg. He now can have 2 five minute walks a day for the next 2 weeks and then increase the walks for 8 minutes for the following 2 weeks, but needs to remain confined to his crate and then he goes back for another check up and if everything is good he can be left to roam freely in the house.

Then in another 4 weeks gets new x-rays and if everything is good we should be done.

I’m thinking about letting come out of his crate at night maybe around 9 pm for about an hour when I know no one will be visiting or knocking on the door. It’s just me and him and I can’t see where that would hurt, all my floors are covered so no chance of him slipping I think it would be good for him. If I sit on the floor he will probably curl up next to me.

I want to take some new pic of Barron and put them on here.

Thanks again for everyone’s input and help.

Bonnie and Barron
