My scout is 11 and she lost the use of her hind legs suddenly last Wednesday. We got her to a neurologist the same afternoon and they diagnosed a ruptured disc. They did an MRI and surgery that evening and she was out by 7pm. Today is Sunday and we've been to see her every day. She is still not walking on her own (is with sling support) but has some motor skills and seems to be slowly improving day by day. They are optimistic for her to be able to walk again. She is supposed to come home tomorrow and will be on strict rest in an x-pen for a long time. Here's the hard part, I'm pregnant and due Saturday! Am having a very hard time being excited about baby when I'm so worried about scout. Plus, she's 50lbs and will have to be carried outside to do her biz (due to stairs) for quite some time. I know she'll be ok and my husband will take good care of her, but she's my first 'baby' and I'm so, so scared about how this will go. All I want is for scout to walk again and I can rest assured. Any words of wisdom would be so appreciated.
