The latest news is, that Mom finally noticed that my right front leg is swollen. We are hoping this is completely unrelated (to my other troubles) and treatable. Mom moved it around and it didn't hurt. Wasps maybe? Snake? Spider? Anyhow, I'm going to get checked at the vet and FOR SURE get my laser therapy. We are hopeful yet again that I'm going to be around and make that prairie trip after all. Phew! We just thought of spider now. We have black widows here. I will be at the clinic in two hours. Mom tried to move that up but they are too busy. I have improved since last night and this morning. So hopefully, another couple of hours won't hurt.
Mom is feeling very bad about being such an alarmist. But she really doesn't have much support out here. You guys are our support. Plus it is quite alarming when a big boy like me doesn't move. Especially after these last few months.
Now, let us see if I can climb the ramp into my truck.
Sending positive thoughts your way, Lobo. Please let us know what happens at the vet. Hugs to you and your mom.
Lobo, we are all here for you and your Mom.
Like Riley said... we are here for you both.
You are ALLOWED to panic...h*llll dont we all... we feel so %^&*( helpless.
just one thing at a time

Thank you everyone! The POP is working. Here is what Mom wrote to her family about my vet visit:
Back from vet.
He has an infected leg. Not related to his other troubles except for the fact that he has been laying down more than usual and got a sore on his elbow. He is on high power anti-biotics. So I will continue to block him from the stairs but not from the rest of the yard. Might be better to have him running up and down the fence and falling on his face, than getting, basically, bed sores.
