Will you please attach video of what you’re seeing? There is an attachment function on the page that should allow you to post pictures and video. You can also use websites like http://www.imgur.com and youtube.com to upload pictures and video respectively. Once this is done, a set of links will appear. You can then post the link back and I can access them. If you are located in the USA and texting pictures/video would be preferable, please let me know. There is an additional charge for this service but it can take the guesswork out of trying to get information back to me and facilitate a faster response.

She is now sleeping and after massaging her belly and back she pooped then has walked using her back legs. I just got out of the hospital and am exhausted with my heart issue and need to rest. I will wait and see. There is no picture she is sleeping so with what I have sent please respond and I will read when I can. Thank you in advance for your help.
