Illness Sucks

Jones has had three emergency trips to the vet for a blocked urinary tract, major surgery to relocate his urethra, and now has a condition called “lumbosacral syndrome”, all within the past three months.

This latest is just terrible. He’s in constant pain, has a hard time walking, and isn’t eating. It’s much like a ruptured disc in the lower back of a person, and if it doesn’t get better soon, could progress to paralysis. It breaks my heart to see him unwilling to move, and remembering him playing just a week ago.
