obsessive-butt-sniffing physical therapy. We have an AWESOME Dr. Krisi that comes to the house and does laser and acupuncture on the chicken nugget. So far we have had two sessions. I am not sure if we are looking for improvement. If we see an improvement, great. If we are giving him a chance at legs working for longer than if we didn’t do therapy, even better!
Jake seems to love all things therapy related. He gets to lay on the couch. Check. He gets laser treatments and falls asleep, check check. Acupuncture means even more rest and relaxation. He’s probably faking the whole spinal scarring thing.
I won’t sugar coat it, his legs remain unsteady. He knuckles on walks and comes home bleeding. I am working on a solution for that (if you saw my search history on Amazon you would probably pee yourself). There are times he has a hard time ‘holding #2’ from bed to door in the morning. Then there are the moments that you just have to laugh… like the other day when I looked over at him and I’m not even sure how, he was eating dinner and pooping at the same time. Life is like a frat house to Jake! As for the accidents (they are certainly not all the time), what can you do? You clean-up and move on.
Here are some photos of the
spa therapy treatments.
Laser, also known as ‘lean on Dr. Krisi like you own her’…
And some photos of the socks I put on him post-bleeding one day. Notice that I even vet taped them so they would
make it look like we were celebrating Christmas in February stay on.
