Well, My baby, Zeus finally had his neck surgery yesterday... The surgery was long at 4 1/2 hrs, but he did well. They scraped off the areas of the vertebrae that were pushing on his spinal cord and causing intermittent paralysis.
...Now he will have to stay in ICU for 3 days and stay extremely immobile since the vertabrae of the neck have been cut.
...It is just so hard being 3 hrs away.. plus not allowed to see him until he is out of ICU....
AND I AM SICK OF CLEANING TO PASS THE TIME AWAY !!!!!!!
Great new!!! The Intern came in the AM to check on Zeus and they found him standing and walking around in his cage. They were pretty amazed... Moved out of ICU to a regular kennel. Now I can go see him.... WOO HOOO!!!!!!!!
Well everyone, I want to thank you for your thoughts and prayers. Zeus is home now. Amazing after only 3 days of having spinal cordsurgery. They thought he would bethere 7- 10 days. He is eating and drinking, but his legs are still ataxic (very unbalanced). Just need lots of time, rest and lovin.
And oh yea 2bad, I did give him a BIG QUEEZE, but gentle!
