Hello everyone, Little Vern is not doing so well. That poor little boy has taken a turn for the worse. Vern can hardly walk at all now. His mom took him back to the chiropractor for one more adjustment yesterday afternoon to see if that would help. The chiropractor determined that three vertebrae had gone out of place in Vern's spine since his last adjustment, but he said that if the problem is neurological and not due to an injury, there's only so much he can do. He only gets up from his bed to eat and drink water, and then he falls down a lot so Nancy has been bringing food and water to him. Also, he's not purring nearly as much as he was and he's getting depressed. Today is Day #3 of the Prednisone so there's still a possibility that could kick in and start helping him. His mom is going to call the neurologist back and let him know how Vern is doing and if he's responding at all to the Prednisone. She's also going to ask him if any of the conditions that the expensive tests are supposed to diagnose are treatable or curable.
We have a new auction going for Vern now. Please participate in any way you can, send this link to everyone and anyone you know! We didn't come this far with this little guy to see him give up now! This is breaking his and my mommy's hearts. And I know many of you here have fallen just as much in love with him as we have. It's odd, last week he was camping with his family, doing really well, seemed happy and everyone at the campground fell in love with him (big surprise there). Now he's obviously in pain and needs more help. We gotta see what we can do and rally everyone we can. Here's his new auction link:
Vern's Facebook auction page. If you're not on Facebook but would still like to help, please pawmail me and I'll give you her paypal address to make a donation. Or you can even donate something for the auction. Contact Nancy with the pictures and info and she'll put it up for bids! Someone else even thought of donating straight to the vet's practice in Vern's name. that may very well be an option when it gets closer to his appointment in June. There's lots of ways to do this. We can get this done. There's a will and there's a way!
Please purr hard for this little guy. He's beaten the odds so far and we love him so much. He's an inspiration to everyone!
Thank you my dear friends
Luv Alex and family
