Sitting up for the first time!

Walter propped himself today in his playpen. He sat that way for moments so I caught the moment on film...Keep in mind, this little guy was run over by an SUV last Friday. I think we can be pretty sure miracles are at work here. 6 days ago he was not meant to live...and now, he's sitting up and smiling.

Notes for today:
July 17 2009

changed bedding twice overnight, 2 am and 4 am. ssems to be peeing a lot these days, but I thin its good for the system. Just have to keep him clean.
6:00 am administered all meds plus one whole tramadol. He didn’t eat as much chicken
9 am he peed in bed - cleaned up bedding re situated him, Iced both hips.
Noon – gave him metacam and one whole tramadol fed ½ chicken breast – still seems a little low and gave one syringe of pumpkin for digestion. MUST ADD VITAMIN SUPPLEMENTS
2:00 took him outside. Peed outside, but on blanket. Still think it counts. Not so good pain wise. Has been worse but has been better. Doesn’t seem to want me to touch him back legs at all.
2:40 sound asleep
3:00 ate a half chicken breast with a bit of butter
(mom came to watch him @ 3:30 I had a conference call I could not resked – and its a good thing she came, he needed lots of care here)
5:00 went out backyard but no pee/poop
6:00 pm all meds
7:00 tried tramadol – spit out
7:30 2nd syringe of pumpkin ice hips PANTING=means he needs to shift position
8:00 iced hips, moved him to dog bed to redo crib bedding. he likes sleeping in dog bed but cannot shift around so limited time. L came over to help.
9:00 he really wants to reshift his hips a lot now, must be part of healing. the screws/pins in his hips much hurt like hell. gave him more meta cam and iced hips. L. and I are going to sleep in shifts tonight. vet in the morning.

Yeah Walter! Way to go buddy. It looks like you're feeling better already. Like I always say 'you can't keep a good pug down'.

I'm sending more good vibes to you for your recovery.
