After a very stressful (and tearful) weekend, news are much better. Jack’s condition is better and there is a good chance now that he’ll recover.
There’ll be months until he’ll be able to walk again (hopefully), but I’m optimistic about that. He’s had a luxation of the spine, a small rupture in the diaphragm, and several hematoma. He’s had surgery, and that went as good as it could go. The lab data didn’t look good, though, and the vet we spoke to was very concerned about organ failure. That threat has passed now (according to the ‘chief-vet’ in the clinic), so we feel much better. I need to get down from that stress level, though, I’m still feeling numb and don’t quite know what to do with myself.
Thank you, everyone, who thought about us.
