Heading into Fall

Yeah!  Made it through the hot Florida summer.  The boys are happy to be done with the 90 degree days.    Nathan has had a really good month for walking.  In the last month, he hasn't had really any days where he couldn't walk and needed a day of rest.   That's the first time since this all started that we've gone this many weeks without some bad days (knocking on wood so as not to jinx us). 

We purchased Steadfast (per Cher's mommys suggestion) about 3-4 weeks ago.   Nathan's been taking his once a day dose.  By the way, its smells absolutely dreadful, but apparently it tastes great!!  So, there could be something to this supplement, since Nathan has been doing consistently well.  I guess the only way to know would be to stop it, which I don't want to do just yet.   The more consistently he walks, the stronger his legs will get, creating a snowball effect, so don't want to stop that momentum now.

Maybe one day Nathan's legs will get strong enough that he won't fall back into his poop if I don't support him while he's pooping!!!  That would be nice!!

National Walk 'N Roll Dog Day

Today is a day dedicated to IVDD and those dogs who are wheelchair bound.  Although they are tied to a wheelchair, they have such great spirit and are such fighters!   See link below to view lots of pictures of these wonderful dogs.

Today, I am thankful that Nathan can walk as well as he can.   And, I'm thankful that I have a wheelchair in the closet that I have never had to use even once.
