    ok...so i took some advice from a fellow BYC member...and bandaged up her hocks that were wore raw [​IMG]

    this is how she is now.......... actually OFF THE GROUND!!!!!!!!!!!!
    she is having some issues with balance, and HATES the band aid's...she keeps messing with them. but instead of her belly on the ground this is what I got......

    [​IMG]

    she can hold herself up [​IMG]
    it's a HUGE improvement from just hours ago where she couldn't even get her butt off the ground!!!!

    I'm staying SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO positive right now!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    please keep "crip" in your prayers tonight! she needs ALLLLL the help she can get!

    her feet still turn in, but, i figure that if I can get her legs working right......then her feet will come next!

    [​IMG]

    positive thinking and so much help from my fellow BYC peeps!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! thank you so much [​IMG]

    she still might not make it, but at least I've tried!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Crip needs a more positive - stronger name how about Criptonite (Iknow it's spelled wrong) but look what it could do to superman. She/he is a doll!!
