Van Gogh - Update - April 3



We took our little buddy Vinnie out for his big boy walk today in an area that he has only seen before from his stroller, and boy was he excited! So many things to check out and smells to snort up, and Vinnie sure had a blast taking it all in.

Vinnie is walking so well on his own now after his hip surgery. It's only been about two weeks since Vinnie's surgery, and he really is recovering nicely. We are now doing weight bearing and range of motion exercises with Vinnie three times a day, and it seems to be helping him quite a bit. Plus, we all know that nothing can keep Vinnie down anyway! He was a little nervous after his surgery to put weight on the leg, but now, he's walking as if nothing has ever happened. We actually have to stop him from running sometimes, since he seems to forget that his other hip is still broken!

Vinnie will have surgery on the other hip in a couple of weeks and after that, will start water therapy to get him back in full motion again. In the meantime, Vinnie continues to get stronger and better every day, and keeps us laughing every minute! If you have missed any of Vinnie's updates, please see them listed at right or enter Van Gogh in the Search box at left and you'll find him!

Thank you, and please stay tuned for more from the Invincible Vinnie!
