Ok... 8:30 I drove Buster to the vet, first off I'm a little peeved because we had to wait two hours for a vet to even look at us, so I wrote my complaint becuase to me this was very important.
So the vet did this test where she flipped his foot over and he would not flip it back, so that was bad. She tested his knee reflexes and they werent great, but they were ok. She then clamped his foot with these tweezer things to see if he had feeling in his paws, it went great! She then put him on the floor, and Buster wobbled a little ways, then his legs colappsed from underneath him. She was very thorough on her checkup, and then went into the back to do some more tests. (I dont know what she did to him back their). What we came to find out is that he has full connection from his brain to his nerves, so thats okay, but a disk is pinching it, or something along thoes lines. She gave him a Steroid injection into his back, and gave me some medication to give him. She also put him on full crate rest, and we set up another appointment to come in next monday and 3:00 PM. She also told me that he CANNOT walk, and if he needs to, to put a towel or leash under his belly to support his hips. She also said that he needs full rest, if he gets too active he could damage the disk further and become paralized. If the shot and meds do not work, we will have to go in and he will need surgery.

Thankyou for your prayers! Now, if you could, please pray that the meds will work and he wont have to go in for surgery, its very expensive but I CAN afford it if I have too. prayers and good thoughs please!!

I would make this day last for all time
then fill the night deep with moonshine
