August 25th - Treatment #3
Nathan had his normal Thursday 2pm acupuncture treatment. Later, after dinner, we all embarked on our normal long family walk. Just like the after the prior week's acupuncture treatment, Nathan was fired up! He walked the entire distance of the long walk, assisted, of course. Here we go again, we thought. We'll have 3 days of super-Nathan, then the crash. Next day, long walk. Day after that, long walk....except... it kept going. No day-4 crash! We officially retired our life-saving pet stroller!!! We no longer needed it. Nathan could walk, with the sling, the entire length of the long afternoon walk. It felt like a miracle. We could feel the muscle tone building in his back legs. Not only that, he was squeaking out pee-pees during these walks. While he could not empty his bladder, he was showing signs of being able to pee on his own again.
