Ham-Micks

Wordy Wednesday

Part of Grey's physical therapy is swimming. Here are pictures of him in his life vest hanging out in the tub. He doesn't particularly like swimming, and he definitely doesn't care for the blow drying afterward. The Physical Therapist is going to lend Grey a tiny woofie cart to see if he likes wheeling around in it. If he does, then his Mom & Dad will get one for him. The way the carts are designed, the rear toes barely touch the ground, so this causes nerve stimulation in the feet which helps to regenerate those nerve endings.







Here is a picture of Grey on his specially designed Ham-Mick. It is a couple of inches taller than the ones Maw normally make so that Grey can look out his window all day while his beans are at work.

Grey you is doing awesome in the tub. I like the picture of you in the hammick. Maybes your beans could make a step for it, so it was a bit higher and you could look out your window when you is lying down?

Anyways has a great weekend. PS I also like the picture of Dorfie. Youse are all so cute!!

Thanks so much for the update on Grey.

Junior said...

grey doesn't seem to mind the water too much. We will purray for the PT to help him walk again!

The Furry Kids said...

We were wondering about one of those carts for Grey. We hope it works out for him. He is super duper brave to go swimming. That looks a little askeery. We're crossing our paws and sending lots purrayers his way.

Eric and Flynn said...

Grey we are so happy to see how much you are improving. The special higher Ham-Mick is a great idea too.

Grr, Midnight & Cocoa said...

whoa. no way! that's totally cool, yet terrifying. way ta go Grey. get all better so you don't have to do all that water and blow dryer stuff anymore. purrrrrrrrs!

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Aw, how cute.

The hammocks you make are adorable. And for Grey to have one just the right size to enjoy looking out the window is neat.

We hope he will enjoy wheeling around in a cart and can grow stronger.
