I think many of you know my DH has had a couple of strokes and his balance isn't the best. Unfortunately, he went to open the soft sided crate to let Ben out this morning and lost his balance and fell on him. I was already at work when he called to tell me what happened. DH is fine but couldn't get up from the floor without help. When I arrived home Ben couldn't stand and I rushed him to the vet. He was in shock when we arrived so two doctors (angles) began working on him. He has a partially collapsed lung and what might be a displaced disk at the lumbar 1 area. He has air in his abdomen, but they think this is from panting so much and at this point not thinking any internal injuries to the gut. He is now standing and walking a little and his rectal tone is intact (he was also incontinent of urine and stool when I arrived home) so they are optimistic about spinal cord injury. I am still shaking from the whole thing. Please keep him in your prayers. Will update later when I can.

I can't imagine the pain and anguish you and your husband are going through right now. Prayers for peace and comfort for you both and prayers for wee Ben that he recover quickly and completely and that he can be kept comfortable while recovering.
