OMG, was he so glad to see his daddy. you folks wouldnt have believed it. he is walking perfectly on his own.
the surgon ( doc platt) came down to talk to me. he was honestly excited. he said its very rare to have a dog with this much willpower and energy after such a ordeal so soon. he was excited for bernie. his new student (which follows up with bernie on the hour) came out to go over things with me. his recovery,his new diet, everything that went on, ect ect ect. she was excited for bernie too. they came walking down the hall and bernie was pulling her all the way. damn he was so glad to see his daddy. then his first student came to see me too. she stayed after work to just tell me hello, and to tell bernie good bye. his local doc will be pulling his staples out(25 of them). hes gotta go back to see doc platt in one month. bernie hit the ground running as soon as we came through the back door. "STOOOOOOOOOOOOP",
i yelled out at the top of my lungs. hes not allowed to do that for several weeks. my arms were full of all the stuff i took with me and couldnt hold his leash. his rearend came to a holt pretty quick. off to his crate he went. i hated to do that but i have to. its just gotta be for a couple of weeks. platt said to me that it was amazing to see all the stuff they pulled from his spine, but yet, bernie is up and around to fast to soon. he was honestly stunned.
i told him it came from all the prayers hes had from so many. i told him of the 124 different prayer chains from around the world i had put bernie on one at a time. i told him that beagle world forum was praying for him as well. he just kinda looked at me. i told him "prayer works doctor platt". he smiled and said he was looking forward to seeing bernie in a month.
i have the address of the head dean at the vet school. im gonna write her a letter telling her of my experience at the school, and of the students and doc's that worked on bernie.
all just to say thank you to them.
they deserve that much dont ya think?
