Thumbelina’s Hydrotherapy Day Two
Today Thumbelina was able to do 4 one minutes hydrotherapy swims. Yesterday and the first two today she still wasn’t moving her rear legs. But the last two sessions she was moving both the rear right and rear left legs. It’s not only her legs but stomach and thighs that need the building up of muscle. So, some weeks of exercise will be significant in her recover. Tomorrow she will meet with Dr. Velasco at Bear Valley Animal Hospital in Apple Valley for her weekly check up. Then she will stay to have her three laser treatments. She will be doing the laser for at least another three to four weeks. I drive her out to Dr. Velasco on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and drop her off in the morning and return at 6pm to bring her home.
As you can see in this video below how weak her legs still are and that’s why the sling and cart are necessary for weeks to come.
We are still looking to raise more funds for her recovery so the more folks who like this blog and share it the greater chance we can get our goal of 400 donations of $5 per person. Thank you.
