SAVING EROL UPDATE
12/30/10

Erol had his MRI yesterday and the results were normal.
Dr. Brofman at Carolina Vet Specialists consulted with a neurologist
and they diagnosed Erol as having an uncommon strain of Coonhound Paralysis.
This is a "good news/bad news" update:
The good news is his prognosis is good and he will hopefully make a full recovery.
The bad news is it may take months before he is able to walk again.
The good news is he has a great new foster home where he can recover
and receive the extra level of care that he will need.
The bad news is its 700 miles away.
Good news is we are very hopeful on being able to set up transport for him!
The bad news is his vet bill is very high but the good news is
we are about half way to raising the money we need to pay for it!

Right now Erol is still at the vet hospital bc his previous foster mom
is in the middle of a family crisis and she is unable to care for him.
The vet techs at the clinic are very nice and are taking good care of him.
He's off IV fluids now and his hospital care is down to $40 per day.
Erol is being hand fed and still has an appetite!
Considering all he's been through, he is doing as well as can be expected.

I will post updates as things progress.
Thank you all for your prayers and support!
