Romeo is doing better each day with things going slow but fairly steady pace. He still has and will for a while, have his "zone out" moments but they are shorter periods and less episodes daily. Since we got the blood tests back we've been able to relax a little more knowing that were not fighting a neuro disease or condition. Now it's just a matter of keeping things going at his pace for healing. We spend a lot of time loving him, brushing, talking, listening to music and massage so his little brain can heal and re-wire. He hasn't had a spasm in 3 1/2 days now so he actually got to spend the night in his baby yard with Mom sleeping at patio door to watch out. He did fine and is stronger and more coordinated and pouts now if he has to come in the baby room but he cannot regulate his body temp yet (pretty sure the hypothalamus in his brain has received trauma and that helps regulate body temp) he also still has moments he seems to "forget" what he needs to do next when he gets too warm so he has to come in between noonish and 3 to stay cool and take a nap. Then Mom gets to take a nap with him because I've got him right with me so I can see/hear every movement. WOO HOO!! LOVE THOSE NAPS. He actually trotted this morning, the very first time since he came home. I was making his breakfast and told him to go to his "house" which is covered patio area for his feed and water. He turned and trotted for about ten steps in front of me to get breakfast. I WAS THRILLED but we don't want him too active too soon.
We are not "out of the woods" yet but everyday brings more hope for full recovery.

About the pics:
Romeo and our sheep Nana. They have become pretty good buddies and nuzzle through the fence and both seem to love sharing their hay with each other.
So happy and relieved his appetite is back and he continues to take on good amounts of his electrolyte water daily.
Take Good Care.
