Rex's Emergency Surgery
On December 29th Rex was playing on the bed and flipped side ways hurting his back. After many vet appointments, accupuncture, and laser therapy, Rex back legs gave out on him this morning. Because Maui has no proper imaging devices like Cat Scan and MRI's, we are flying to Oahu today (Jan. 11th) for an emergency scan for his back surgery. With the costs of all of his treatment so far, flights, hotel, missed work and surgery. We are scrambling to come up for his surgery deposit. We will do everything we can to get him the surgery and care he needs! If you can spare anything, a dollar, change of even just some prayers. We will be so greatful and are greatful for all the kind words and support we have recieved so far. We want Rex healthy, happy and back on his boogie board at the beach as soon as possible! Mahalo for the love and support!+ Read More
We are flying home with Rex today! We are so excited to be home and with our munchkin. He has an acupuncture and laser treatment tomorrow and we will be doing physical therapy exercises on him for the next two weeks! He still cant walk yet but he is getting stronger in his back legs everyday! ❤️ mahalo for the continued love and support!
Day two post operation. Rex has been doing three different exercises four times a day to retrain and tone his muscles. We were taught them today as well and we will need go preform them on him every day during his recovery. He is eating and does not seem to be in any pain which is such a relief! He still is not walking yet but he is sitting up and scooting around and pulls his back legs back when we pull/ pinch them , which is one of the exercises! Were hoping the doctor says he can fly home with us tomorrow's! ❤️ mahalo for all your continued support and love!
First visit post operation. He is on heavy pain meds and very tired. He was whinning this morning before we got there and would not eat but he stopped whinning and ate for mama in her lap! He has no movement in back legs yet but he has feeling which is a great sign! ❤️ We get to visit him later this evening .
Aloha Family! Rex finished surgery and the Dr. said he did very well! He is still on medications and they are going to monitor him throughout the night. We get to see him in the morning! We are so blessed by all of your love and support! We ate forever grateful to all of your beautiful and loving souls! We hope to pay it forward as soon as we can ! ❤️ I will try and post photos and video of him tomorrow in here and/or his instagram!
