As you can see by the pictures our Tres is finally starting to get back to normal. He has had a long recovery from the hip procedure. It has been hard watching him struggle with periods of frustration with his body and just the overall situation of being limited by pain and anxiety over his hip not dislocating again. He no longer has to wear the pillow cast between his legs but prefers to much of the time. He still occasionally has pain that is reduced by position changes. He is in intensive physical therapy which is also hard because he knows it is important but he gets tired of being pushed to do more. His warrior spirit as usual refuses to give up. It is pure joy to catch a glimpse of his happy moments, getting to hear his laughter while he enjoys the taste of freedom and Independence again.
